Since October 15, 1898, Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity has been dedicated to enriching the lives of women. At the State Female Normal School (now Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia, our Founders, nine young women, envisioned an organization that would perpetuate their ties of friendship. We strive to help all of our members embody these timeless values while thriving in the modern world. As our Creed says, “In Zeta Tau Alpha, lies the opportunity to learn those things which will ever enrich and ennoble our lives.”
To meet the challenge of enriching and ennobling the lives of our members, Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity works in partnership with the ZTA Foundation. Established in 1954, this Foundation offers members the opportunity to serve others through national breast cancer awareness service projects as well as local philanthropic activities.
