                                                   ZETA  CHAPTER   With the beginning of every school year, Zeta Chapter holds their annual recruitment retreat in Gatlinburg, TN to prepare for the following week of welcoming the class of 2016 to The University of Tennessee! Recruitment began August 19 with Go Greek round and ended on August 25 with Preference round. Zeta Chapter also had the opportunity to discuss our national philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness, during Philanthropy round and to show our fun personalities with a “Disney Princess” skit during Skit round. Zeta Chapter had a great recruitment and gave bids to 54 new members!

Zeta Chapter was so excited to welcome the new 2012 Pledge class! It was also exciting because it was the first time PanHellenic had Bid Day in Thompson Boiling Arena instead of in the suite! We celebrated Bid Day at the Foundry in World’s Fair Park, took pictures and even ran through the fountains! It definitely was a day to remember!


Strawberry  Fields  Forever                                          Date  Party   Our third annual date party was held on Sept. 6 at Latitude 35 in Market Square. The girls had a blast as we grooved to the retro music and enjoyed each other’s company in the historic area of Knoxville. Headbands, floral tops and long skirts filled the dance floor this year as the go-to hippy trend!
