Zeta Tau Alpha
The sisters of the Lambda Iota Chapter here at Vanderbilt have worked hard to make an impact in the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities since our founding in 2012. The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation is committed to the Philanthropy of breast cancer education and awareness, which has allowed us to partner with major corporations such as the NFL, Susan G. Komen, and Yoplait. We support the cause through our spring Think Pink 5K, at Pink Out Vanderbilt athletic events as well as Tennessee Titan’s football games, and by volunteering at the Survivor’s Tent in the Nashville Race for the Cure. Apart from our national Philanthropy, individual members of Zeta Tau Alpha have volunteered locally and logged thousands of service hours last year. Our members have also impacted the Vanderbilt community by being involved in, and holding leadership positions for, many on-campus activities, such as cheerleading, VUcept, Tour Guides, Alternative Spring Break, Relay for Life and more.
The women of Zeta Tau Alpha are a genuine group of girls who pride themselves on their strong sisterhood. To keep the sisterhood alive, members enjoy dinners, study breaks, movie nights, Laser tag, an annual sisterhood retreat, and more. We also extend our sisterhood by having social events such as our White Violet Formal and other themed date parties.
As members of Zeta Tau Alpha, we rely on each other during our time at Vanderbilt University. But the impact of our membership in such a rewarding sorority lasts far beyond our college years. We are so excited to welcome new members into the Zeta Tau Alpha sisterhood and to make more friendships that will last a lifetime!
