Zeta Tau Alpha History
Zeta Tau Alpha was founded on October 15th, 1898 at Virginia State Female Normal School, which is now Longwood University. The 9 founders wanted to form companionship and form close bonds with one another during their collegiate years. With the fear that their friendship may fade without a formal bond to unify it, Zeta Tau Alpha was formed! Zeta Tau Alpha is currently the second largest organization in the NPC.
Zeta Tau Alpha celebrates it's Founder's Day on October 15th!
