Zeta Tau Alpha is a women's fraternity, and is often referred to as a sorority. The women of ZTA (also referred to as simply "Zeta") are classy, witty, and pretty. They're the girls who you can bring home to mom, but can drink your dad under the table. Their colors are turquoise blue and steel gray. Their open motto is "seek the noblest". Their symbol is the crown and they are often referred to as "Queen of Greeks". At Illinois State University, they can be seen rolling deep into parties, coming in 1st place for most competitive events, and chanting "UH OH ZETA!". They've been crowning only the best women since 1898.
Fraternity Pledge: Man, there's this girl in my physics class whose so hot. She's classy, witty AND pretty. But I'm not sure what sorority she's in.
Fraternity Active: You must be new around here, she's gotta be a Zeta Tau Alpha.

Zeta Tau Alpha is a nationally recognized fraternity - not a sorority because it was founded by young women without the help of a male fraternity - whose open motto is "Seek The Noblest" (not "Love... the greatest of all things"). ZTA is the third-largest Panhellenic organization in the nation with now over 191,000 initiated members and 148 active collegiate chapters across the country. ZTA has raised over thousands of dollars for their philanthropy, breast cancer research and awareness, and is partnered with Yoplait, the NFL, and Self Magazine to help raise awareness and funds for the cause. The overall goal of Zeta Tau Alpha is to foster friendship and sisterhood and to instill in its members nobility, integrity, and a commitment to high personal standards.

Zeta Tau Alpha is a women's fraternity founded in 1898. They have been ranked as #1 in the nation as best sorority for years including 2013. They have raised millions of dollars for their philanthropy, breast cancer educations and awareness and have made an amazing impact with their Think Pink Campaign. Zeta's are the kinds of girls who have everything going for them. They are smart, friendly, classy, well minded and have a strong passion for their philanthropy and the community around them.

A Zeta is the kind of girl that everyone wants to be. Their symbol is the crown and have known to the 'Queen of the Greeks" and their open motto is "Love, the greatest of all things". They are known to be the most beautiful at their universities and held to an extremely high standard while having an amazing voice in Greek Life. They are stereotyped as being wealthy, gorgeous, country club girls who are sweet but snappy.

Sure, Fraternity boys may go for the easy sorority to have a fun Friday night, although we all know who they will be crawling to for date to their formals and weekends.

What can they say? They have been accepting the only royalty since 1898 and only the best will be crowned.
Its not easy wearing the crown, Rush Zeta Tau Alpha or bow down.

Zeta Tau Alpha is a nationally recognized sorority. Their motto is- Love, the greatest of all things.
Zeta's are classy girls. They can drink and party with the best of them, but they also hold the highest GPA's and give back to the community through various volunteer organizations. Zeta's are the girls men take home to their mothers but can drink your father under the table.

Not only do we have the looks, brains, and glamour, but most importantly the class to back it up. With our crowns on high and that Zeta sparkle in our eye, we are every guy's dream and every girl's envy. There's only one thing to be... and that's a Zeta!

Wow, that girl is amazing; she's got it all. She must be a Zeta Tau Alpha.
