Livingin 1001 W University Ave

Needless to say, we are in awe of this sisterhood and the people that make it a home. our house has kept its foundation on oklahoma state's campus since 1923 and holds 66 of our members. Living in 1001 w university ave, the zeta castle or the "zouse" is the experience of a lifetime. The zta house holds many names, many memories, and many stories, but the people who have filled this house over the past almost 100 years are the people that have made this place a home for the years to come.

These are a few of our favorite things about living in the zouse:

  • Chef lou's amazing meals

  • the closest walk to campus #locationlocationlocation

  • bachelor and football watch parties

  • late night chats when we all pile into one room

  • studying together in the office or blue study

  • movie nights in the informal

  • hanging out on the porch and sun deck


Meet the girl who Runs the Castle:

"living at 1001 has helped establish some of my favorite zeta memories. This position has not only shown me the importance of sisterhood, but making the most out of life with the people you love. There is nothing better than coming home to zeta after a long day because there is always laughter, love, and friendship. the memories we make in our house have and will last a lifetime. our zeta castle holds a special place in many zetas' lives and above all the zeta castle is a forever home."

Zeta love and mine,

Our mom away from home:

our house mom, laura stafford has 3 kids and 5 grandkids + 1 thats on the way but also has 173 college women that she is passionate about taking care of. laura's heart for serving others reaches far beyond zta, in her spare time she serves on the welcoming committee at lifechurch here in stillwater. at zeta she works to keep our house in tip-top shape and our members feeling very loved. In a lot of ways our members feel as if she is like our mom away from home as we have moved away and come to college. she provides us with help in many ways, from always being available to help us get more printer paper to all the life chats that we get to have with her. she is constantly using her skills and gifts to make the world around her a better place.


“I do want all of you girls to know that I'm honored to be a part of your lives. your time in college will be a time that will shape you.”
