Zeta Tau Alpha was voted number one sorority in the country in part because of involvement!
Each year Iota Omicron is involved on campus in Greek Life activites with other chapters, participates in homecoming, hosts "Pink Out" games for the athletes, and anything else to get involved. This past October, Zeta Tau Alpha hosted and "Pink Out" soccer game in Lander University's Jeff May Athletic Complex. Sisters decorated the stadium and field and also handed out 'Thnk Pink, Think ZTA' ribbons to patrons.
In fall of 2013 Zeta Tau Alpha, along with Alpha Tau Omega, and Delta Sigma Theta won Greek Week! As a chapter, we are extremely proud to have won two years in a row. In 2014, ZTA won Homecoming, which was super exciting for our chapter. ZTA also won Homecoming back to back in the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years. During Greek Week in Fall of 2016, ZTA won the Outstanding Philanthropy Event on campus and overall winners of Greek Week.
Each year, student activities hosts a competition between student organizations during homecoming week. ZTA is proud to say that we won in 2017! We are proud to have the 'Bearcat Cup' in our possession for the next year!
We also hosted a healthy living program on campus. The campus nurse, who just happens to be a ZTA alum, and other guest speakers spoke to us about how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle. This was an educational program for our chapter and other students that joined us.
Volleyball is an intramural sport that our sisters love to play every year. It is great bonding time and a fun activity to get to know other organizations on campus. Some of the sisters don't prefer to play and they go to cheer on the players.
Iota Omicron is known for our many philanthropy events we do. (look under the Philanthropy link)
This upcoming year, we are looking forward to planning some events in the community with Connie Maxwell Childrens Home, hosting a "Prom" at a nursing home, and having a pen pal for Soldiers that are overseas.
Our sisters are also involved in other organizations such as:
Student Alumni Association
LU Dance and Cheer Team
Miss Lander Pageant
Lander University Student Nurses Association (LUSNA)
Business Administration Association
Student Government Association
