“For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, & self-discipline” -2 Timothy 1:7


Madison Matthews // President


About Madison::

Hometown: Spanish Fort, AL | Major: Accounting

Why she loves ZTA: “I love Zeta because of the girls who not only joined my life, but invested and cared for me throughout my time at Samford. My freshman year after my grandfather passed, a senior whom I was really close with made an effort to check on me and bring me candies to cheer me up. Losing a grandparent while I was away at college was incredibly hard, but I was so thankful to have that friend who looked after me like she was my sister. She has inspired me to constantly show kindness to others because you never know what people are going through. I hope I have the opportunity to express the love that was shown to me to other members in this chapter. I’m honored and extremely humbled to be able to hold the position of President and I hope to be able to express the love that I have for Delta Psi throughout my term. Shoutout to Lizzie Kolakoski (2016 alum) for teaching me one of the most important lessons in life.”

Why she loves ZTA: “I love Zeta because from the minute I sat down during rush I felt an immediate sense of comfort and acceptance.

I thank the Lord for Zeta because I know my college experience truly wouldn’t be as great without it.”
