New Member Experience
ZTA’s Zeta Is Forever New Member Experience was designed to emphasize the values of the Fraternity. Each section of the program focuses on values found in The Creed of Zeta Tau Alpha that all Zetas should “seek” in their daily lives, including greatness, understanding, purpose, sisterhood and nobility. Zetas across the country take part in this program as new members and learn values they carry with them throughout their lives.
All first-year Zetas go through the New Member Experience, GreekLifeEdu, Initiation and two post-Initiation lessons during the same semester as Primary Recruitment.
Prior to the in-person meeting each week, new members will complete an online educational workshop regarding that week’s topic. Each workshop consists of information and activities that will assist new members in their learning of the material. The purpose of these online workshop is to allow for fewer lectures and more discussion and engagement with other new members during in-person meetings, building overall sisterhood and a connection to the Fraternity. The in-person meetings include icebreakers, a review of the online module, interactive activities and a personal reflection.
The New Member Program is an experience that makes a comfortable transition into Zeta Tau Alpha. Our New Member Educator follows ZTA's Zeta is Forever New Member Program, which invests into the new members individually while also teaching them the importance of being a Zeta and the history behind the fraternity. If you ask anyone who has been through this program, they will agree that this program is an unforgettable experience that welcomed them in their first months in Zeta.
