New Member Retreat :: Night at the Museum

This past week has been busy busy! Ever since Bid Day, Zeta world has been full speed ahead. Thursday night was our chapter’s big/little sister reveal, and this weekend has been our new member retreat.

The new member retreat was held at McWane Science Center. Our new members had so much fun bonding with their new sisters! (We still can’t believe they’re OURS!!!) Shoutout to Teya Lonquist & the new member committee for making all the magic happen. Great job, gals!

Check out some sweet memories below:


bid day 2017!

We can’t BELIEVE Bid Day was almost a week ago already. Our girls ran home & time has flown ever since then!

We are over the moon EXCITED to have welcomed 62 new members into our chapter. They are so full of life & the sweetest additions to the ZTA fam!

bringing our girls HOME – recruitment week 2017

‘Twas the night before BID DAY & all through the Zouse, Zetas can’t WAIT to bring our girls HOME!!!

There’s really no way to fully understand recruitment week without living it first hand — but lemme tell ya! Through the belly-laughs, tears, endless cups of coffee, & Buddy the Elf 40 minutes of sleep, team Zeta made it! Our sisters are over the moon excited for our newest members to join the fam TOMORROW.

Check out some of our favorite memories from the week! Click HERE to view our sisterhood video.

Crazy BIG shoutout to Olivia Corley, our amazing recruitment chair, & Maddie Hartman & Sarah Poole, her awesome assistants! 

Bid Day, we’re dreaming about ya!!! 

recruitment: girl, you’ve got this!

Hey girl going through recruitment – You’ve GOT this!

Hey girl on the other side – You’ve GOT this!

Rush is a roller coaster of emotions, right? It’s fun, like really really fun. You get to meet lots of new people and learn about six incredible organizations, but the fear of the unknown and the butterflies can be endless. You know what? There’s no need to worry. Really. Girl, you’ve GOT this!

To the girl going through recruitment – You are loved, worthy, smart, beautiful, and oh so wonderful! No matter where you end up on Bid Day, you are never defined by those letters. With each house you walk into next week, don’t worry about fitting into a certain place. Don’t make your decision because of someone else’s expectations or opinions. Keep your eyes and heart open; see what fits YOU the best.

To the girl on the other side – Let’s welcome with open arms, shall we? What an incredible honor it is to bring potential new members into our home! Remember how you felt when you went through recruitment? It really wasn’t that long ago! Time FLIES when you’re having fun. Now you’re on the other side–and it’s more exciting now than ever!! Savor these sweet moments in growing closer with your sisters while searching for new.

Okay, ladies. Take a deep breath. Recruitment starts TOMORROW! Are you excited yet?! I know I am. Get plenty of sleep, keep an open mind, focus on what’s best for you, and be yourself. It’s so freeing and comforting to know we never walk through life alone–even in the crazy busiest or mind-bogeling confusing moments. Girl, you’ve GOT this!

You are free. Be who you already are. -Rebekah Lyons

In the midst of work and preparation, we’ve had lots of fun along the way! (Disco party and pajama night!!) There were plenty of exciting events happening on campus this week too–even a petting zoo on the quad! Check out some of our favorite memories from week 1 below:
