New Member Experience
The Zeta Is Forever New Member Experience emphasizes the values of the Fraternity, found in our Creed. The weekly lessons are: Seek Greatness, Seek Understanding, Seek Purpose, Seek Sisterhood and Seek the Noblest.
Prior to the weekly meeting, new members complete an online educational workshop regarding that week’s topic. These online workshops allow for fewer lectures and more discussion and engagement with other new members during meetings, building overall sisterhood and a connection to the Fraternity. The meetings include icebreakers, a review of the online module, interactive activities and a personal reflection.
All first-year Zetas participate in the New Member Experience, CommunityEdu, Initiation and two post-Initiation lessons (Seek Meaning and Seek Commitment) during the same semester as when they join the chapter.
Beta Iota Experience
The New Member Experience is all about educating the members on why ZTA. It’s a simple question but it’s hard to put into words the reason why. I asked most girls one word that describes why ZTA, and they said “Love” , “Home” , “Sisters” , “Service” , “Loyalty” , “Trust” , “Family” and many more words. During the New Member Experience, members will learn what makes Zeta, Zeta, the 9 key values of our sisterhood and many more facts about ZTA. Not only do we learn the history of ZTA, but we learn how to be a sister and what makes us a ZTA. In ZTA we don’t try to make you fit to our mold, we take you as you are and help you reach your full potential here with us. Not only do you gain knowledge of our Fraternity, but you gain family you’d thought you didn’t need. Many girls said they didn’t even know they were missing something in their lives, until they joined ZTA and created such lasting bonds within ZTA and their Member Class.
We’d love to tell you more, so if you want more information about ZTA’s New Member Experience email the New Member Coordinator, Kierston McPherson
