Who is a Zeta Tau Alpha? She is an athlete, a writer, a leader, a musician and a scholar. Most important, she is a sister and a friend. In continuing the precedent set by their founders in 1898, Zetas can be found throughout the campus participating in a wide variety of activities and always having fun.
Members of Zeta Tau Alpha retain their individuality while participating in the sorority to create a strong bond of love and sisterhood. As a whole, they are firmly committed to advancement through service and philanthropic activities, including cleaning up local highways, participating in the Relay for Life, and working at Worlds of Fun Amusement Park to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
In addition to being active on campus and in the community, Zetas enjoy taking part in social activities. The Barn Party, Informal, and Court of Themis Ball are just a few of the yearly events planned by Zeta Tau Alpha. Graduation does not bring an end to participation. Alumnae of Sigma Chapter remain active by advising collegiate members and improving the house. During the brief time that Zetas spend at Baker, a special love is formed that binds them together, making Zeta Tau Alpha truly a lifelong experience.
