Zeta Tau Alpha sets high standards for their sisters. We expect our members to be fully participant, academically responsible, to abide by university and ZTA regulations for alcohol use, to treat each other with respect and abstain from any form of hazing, to maintain ZTA provided housing, to respect the secrecy of ZTA rituals, to be financially responsible and fulfill financial obligations promptly, and to generally conduct themselves in a manner that reflects well on the Fraternity as a whole.
Alcohol and Hazing Policies:
Zeta Tau Alpha does not condone underage drinking, excessive drinking or consumption of alcohol in ZTA housing, on ZTA property or during chapter activities. Alcoholic beverages may be served or consumed at Zeta Tau Alpha activities not held on ZTA property during the academic school year only after the chapter’s procedures to ensure compliance with Fraternity policy, state laws and university regulations have been received and acknowledged by the Province President or Director of New Chapters.
Zeta Tau Alpha condones no form of hazing by any alumna, initiated member or new member. Such activities are not compatible with the ideals and traditions of the Fraternity and reflect negatively on the organization.
