Quick Facts

Founded on October 15, 1898 at the Virginia State Female Normal School (now known as Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia, Zeta Tau Alpha is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference and the third largest of all 26 NPC groups. There are over 218,000 initiated members into the ZTA Fraternity, and over 162 Active Collegiate Chapters - there are ZTA sisters everywhere you look! ZTA is regarded to as a "fraternity" and not a "sorority" because it was founded independently from a male greek organization, and our founders established a lasting tradition of woman-empowerment through their own strength and virtue.
 
Wofford's chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha is known as the Theta Zeta Chapter. Theta Zeta is Wofford's first women's greek organization - the Zetas have been around since 1978, only two years after Wofford became coed.
