About Zeta Tau Alpha

Thiel’s Zeta Beta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha is the 123rd link in the chain of ZTA chapters. The purpose of Zeta Tau Alpha is the intensifying of friendship, the fostering of a spirit of love, the creating of such sentiments, the performing of such deeds, and the moulding of such opinions as will be conducive to the building up of a purer and nobler womanhood in the world. Zeta Tau Alpha selected breast cancer education and awareness as its national philanthropy and THINK-PINK!® is a registered trademark of Zeta Tau Alpha. ZTA is partnered with American Cancer Society® as the National Survivor Ambassador of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer®. At the nearly 300 Making Strides walks held each October in communities across the country, Zetas provide assistance and focus on survivor recognition. Over time, we will help grow the survivor recognition program at these events. Since 1999, Zeta Tau Alpha alumnae and collegiate members have worked with all 32 NFL teams to increase awareness of breast cancer at professional football games. ZTA is an official fan outreach partner of the National Football League. Zetas have helped spread the message of breast cancer awareness to over 5 million football fans across the country. To educate, equip and empower our members to be advocates for their own breast and ovarian health, we’ve partnered with Bright Pink®, a national nonprofit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. We bring the Brighten Up® Educational Workshop to each of our collegiate chapters. We plan to grow this program over time to include Panhellenic women and others in the campus community. ZTA has also partnered with Yoplait® in the Save Lids to Save Lives® program and Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in the past.
