14 things we love about zta

In honor of Valentine’s Day we wanted to take a moment and reflect on some things we love about ZTA! “…and the foundation precept of Zeta Tau Alpha was LOVE, the greatest of all things!”

Bid day

After going through Rush, you have fallen in love with ZTA. Whether it be for the first time or all over again, there is no better way to celebrate than by giving your new sisters their first set of letters and dancing the night away!


After going through Rush and Bid Day, walking around campus is great! Wearing your letters while walking through Ben Brown guarantees you a few extra greetings on your way to class.

Putting Z at the beginning of all our words

Zistas, ZLAM, zouse…and the list goes on!

Immediately after Big/Little reveal, you gain a second family. Some ZTA families are big, others are small, but they are all made of love, support, and group messages.

Throwing the crown

Need we say more?


White Candles

Nothing is more exciting than ending a chapter with all our sisters gathered in a circle anxiously awaiting to hear a proposal story.

Familiar Faces in the Caf

When you walk into the crowded cafeteria, it can be overwhelming. Yet, when you have more than 200 sisters, there’s always someone you know to eat with!

Facebook Pages

In ZTA you never go uninformed and despite the plethora of notifications, we love our social media.  With two Facebook pages for members, there is always a place to ask your questions whether they are about ZTA, Samford, Birmingham, or anything in between! From surveys and homework help to funny pictures and reminders, the Facebook pages we’re a part of are never boring.


Paint party, mom’s weekend, tailgates, formal, mixers. We love them all!!


Sorority girls love t-shirts, and we are no exception. Whether it be the new shirts on sale or the “vintage” ones being sold by senior ZTAs, you can always find a cute new way to wear your letters.


We love intramurals whether we’re dominating on the field or encouraging our sisters from the sidelines. ZTAs are athletic!

Endless opportunities

There are so many ways to have fun through Zeta Tau Alpha. You can get involved in leadership, intramurals, sisterhood activities, and so much more. There is always something to do with ZTA!

Food at chapter

Whether it be donuts, cupcakes, or ice cream, there are often sweet treats to have at chapter. After all, ZTAs like to eat!

Knowing you’re a part of the best sisterhood on earth.
