    Zeta Tau Alpha

    Zeta Tau Alpha (Zeta)

    In the 1890s, the State Female Normal School (now Longwood University) in Farmville, Virginia, was fertile ground for the founding of women’s Greek letter organizations. The forward-thinking school was the first in the state to open its doors to female students, an idea not popular with many at the time, so it is no surprise that it attracted many intrepid, determined young women who were quick to organize formal societies in order to support and encourage their fellow students. Nine young women at the school, close friends who recognized the need for a new organization to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding student population, began meeting in the fall of 1898. They chose Themis, the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, as their patron goddess, and for their motto, the inspirational, “Seek the Noblest,” and on October 15, 1898, they introduced the newest women’s fraternity to the campus of the State Female Normal School: Zeta Tau Alpha (Zeta or ZTA).
