“I am humbled that this is our sixth year in a row being awarded this recognition. We are always striving to make better women of ourselves and have been implementing new programming to help reach that goal.” President of Zeta, Jillian Hickey, said.
Zeta Tau Alpha has been part of ISU since 1974 and has always been a strong chapter here on campus.
Zetas are known for their accomplishments and their hard work toward their philanthropy, which raises money for breast cancer awareness. They do a lot of community service and are very involved in the Greek community.
“Being a member of ZTA means that I have sisters who motivate me daily to be my best self, and sisters whom I can laugh with until we cry.” Hickey said.
The sorority, whose house is located on School Street, currently has over 115 women in this chapter.
“I think what makes ZTA such a strong sorority is that we are always striving to become better and more noble women. We are always finding new ways to better our academics, philanthropy, and overall well-being of the chapter,” Hickey said.
Zeta hopes to continue to be a strong chapter and continue to develop as a sisterhood in the future. They work hard and have several accomplishments to be proud of. Most recently, Zeta won first place in Chi Omega’s major philanthropy event March Madness for the second year in a row.
“Receiving the nomination of top sorority here at Illinois State University makes me so proud of the women in ZTA. To me, this nomination is also a way of saying that people view ZTA as well-rounded women in all areas that a sorority woman should be. We are so thankful to know that the Bloomington-Normal community sees the hard work and effort we put into our sisterhood.” Hickey said.
