MADISON MATTHEWS :: PRESIDENT

Hometown: Spanish Fort, AL | Major: Marketing

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: “One of my favorite things about ZTA is how accepting we all are. We all have our own little quirks that set us apart and I couldn’t imagine it any other way! Our individual differences make up Delta Psi, a chapter that I’m so happy to call home.”

Hometown: Birmingham, AL | Major: Entrepreneurship & Marketing

Hi, there! I organize all of Zeta’s social media – Instagram, blog, Facebook – that’s me!! Welcome aboard! Zeta has given me a space to call home here at Samford – a community of girls who embrace imperfection, & always have one other’s back. For me, Zeta has been a place to grow in leadership, faith, & confidence. In Zeta I’ve found some of the most precious friendships that will last far beyond my time here. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to lead & serve our sisterhood!

I saw how everyone was so different and unique but still somehow fit together.

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