ZETA IS Forever
The Alumna experience:
Zeta Tau Alpha does not end with college graduation; in fact, it is just the beginning of a whole lifetime of fun, friendship, and opportunities. For alumnae, ZTA is not four years; it's for life.
Notable Alpha Upsilon Alumnae:
Fun Fact: Courtney Parchman started her comedy career in our Zeta house by asking another sister to go outside on the front porch to take a video of her. every day, Zeta Tau Alpha members encourage one another to excel and push themselves in whatever area they are passionate about. We value the way our sisters stand by in support of one another. It is our sisters' encouragement and service to one another that is able to get us to higher places. Alpha Upsilon is proud of the alumnae members who have achieved excellence in their fields and help one another make their dreams a reality.

Promoting ZTA in your community
Honoring your lifetime commitment to ZTA
From enjoying a night out together on the town, to relaxing together painting or trying out new restaurants. It is all done while spending quality time with other Zetas.
service & fundraising:
Connecting with communities through service strengthens the bonds of our sisterhood. From honoring breast cancer survivors to collecting school supplies for children, or personal care items for women's shelters. Serving together with our sisters is what impacts each of us and the future alumnae of ZTA.
Through collaborative programming of games and service activities alumnae and collegians get to see the example set before them of a lifelong commitment to the Fraternity.
special interest programming:
No matter what you enjoy doing, having a sister beside you to enjoy the fun makes the moments more memorable. We are inspired by the diverse interests and talents each ZTA has and we program specific to your passions.

"Being a Zeta Tau Alpha alumna has enriched my life in many ways. It is true that sisterhood really is beyond just 4 years of college. I am so thankful for the alumnae experience and all that it has provided for me since I graduated from Oklahoma State University."
