Academics

ZTA strives to do our very best at everything we do, especially when it involves academics. Our chapter has mandated studied hours for each member based on each sisters GPA. These hours make sure that each member is getting the hours needed in order to maintain a high GPA. It also gives sisters a chance to study together. Iota Omicron is proud to say that at the end of the 2017-2018 school year, our chapter had the highest GPA out of all Greek Organizations on campus!!

At each weeks chapter meeting, the Academics Achievement Chair recognizes the "Geek of the Week," a sister who has completed the most hours in the library for the previous week! This ensures that sisters are completing their necessary study time, but also have a fun incentive or reward for doing so. The chapter also wants to make sure that sisters are being recognized for any good grades they receive. We provide incentives to the sisters that do well during the week on tests and quizzes that can include deductions off the next week's library hours, goodie bags, or even a "smarty pants" pizza party!

Iota Omicron's Academic Achievements Chair, Rose Baxley, hosts fun and exciting academic workshops, each semester, that cover topics including: communicating with your professors, successful studying, and exam week stress management techniques.

We try to make studying easier for each sister by pairing them up with a sister in their same major. This is helpful because they can study and ask questions with someone who is familiar with the material. The older sisters in the chapter make sure that they are available to be used as a resource for younger sisters. We are all here for one another and strive to succeed inside and out of the classroom. This is one of the many way that we do so. 

We have numerous sisters that are members of the following honor societies:
Blue Key
Alpha Chi
Kappa Delta Pi
Psi Chi
TriBeta
Pi Sigma Alpha

Nationwide Zeta Tau Alpha:
GPA of 3.1

Zeta Tau Alpha National scholarships are offered awarding over 5,000 sisters over the past 60 years. We are proud to announce that our sister, Summer Gregory, was a recipient of a ZTA scholarship this year!
