While Alpha Nu puts a large focus on areas such as academics, campus involvement, service projects, and sisterhood, we also enjoy many social events throughout the year! Each semester we pair up with fraternities and sororities to plan events. This gives us the opportunity to meet and get to know the members of other Greek organizations on campus. In addition to planning these fun events, we work closely with our advisors and our International Office to ensure the safety of all members while participating in Zeta approved events. Alpha Nu has designated responsible monitors for each event and we always have safety plans to watch over our sisters in case of trouble or an emergency.
ZTA is dedicated to having close relationships which each fraternity and sorority on campus! Every year we have a mixer with all fraternities and sororities. The fraternity mixers start at the Zeta house where we serve dinner to the boys, play board games, and get to know them a little better! After dinner, the boys come back to the house to sing a fun song to us and walk us back to their house for music, dancing, and fun! Each mixer we get to dress up for different themes, such as "Thriller Nights", "Astronauts vs. Aliens," and "Caddyshack." We have also had many dinners and events with each sorority on campus. One event was our KD/ZTA ice cream social, "Straight Out of Longwood," to celebrate our founders days! We have so much fun getting to know our Panhellenic sisters.
Zeta Tau Alpha also hosts around four date parties a year! We have Fall Party and Crown Ball, which is our semi-formal, and later a Spring Party and White Violet Formal. Fall and Spring party are both fun events where we dress up to the theme with our dates. Past themes include "Come on Barbie, Lets Go Date Party", "Sail Away with ZTA", and 'Denim and Diamonds." For our Crown Ball, we get to dress up in cute cocktail dresses and kick back with our sisters before finals. Last but not least is White Violet Formal. This is our most anticipated and exciting party of the year! We book a nice venue, wear fancy dresses, have awards for the year, and dance the night away with our sisters!
