In 1898, nine young women at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia joined together in devotion to the right, the good and the true to form the Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity. At the University of Georgia, the Zetas strive to reflect their open motto “Seek the Noblest” in every aspect. The Gamma Pi chapter, chartered in 1949, is committed to excellence and continually receives national awards of the highest distinction.
Zeta prides itself on exemplary leadership, involvement and service. Members of Zeta Tau Alpha are active in UGA Cheerleading, UGA Miracle, Georgettes, UGA Equestrian, Dance Dawgs, Relay for Life, Orientation Leader, College Young Life, Crossroads, Hoop Girls, Wesley Foundation, Match Mates, UGA Heros, LeaderSHAPE, Visitors Center Staff and Diamond Darlings.
Academic achievement is also a high priority at Zeta. Many are part of the UGA Honors Program as well as the Order of Omega. Several girls have been selected for Foundation Fellows and Leonard Leadership Scholarships. Zeta Tau Alpha consistently maintains an excellent chapter grade point average that exceeds the overall University of Georgia student average.
Zeta’s national philanthropy of Breast Cancer Education and Awareness is extremely important to the chapter. Every year, the chapter hosts the Diamond Challenge Softball Tournament to raise money for the cure. The Gamma Pi chapter raised more than $50,000 in 2011 to benefit women nationwide through programs such as Race
for the Cure and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The ZTA Foundation claims “Think Pink!” as a registered trademark to serve as the umbrella for all of our breast cancer education and awareness projects.
Zeta Tau Alpha welcomes you to the University of Georgia and wishes you the best of luck with Recruitment! GO DAWGS!!
