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 Worldâ€™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!
Senior Spotlight Molly Albin Molly Albin has always given 100 percent to everything she does. Her love for Zeta Tau Alpha and her sisters has helped her to become a wonderful role model and leader for the younger girls. As a sophomore, Molly was the Corresponding Secretary for Zeta Chapter. She made and sent the first Christmas card for the chapter. She also was a Recruitment Workshop Chair where she did the behind the scenes work for our New Member Educator in creating a smooth and successful bid day. As a junior, she held a position on the New Member Board, which allowed her to be a leader and guide for the new members. Currently, Molly is the Music Chairman; she teachers our chants and ritual songs during our chapter and new member meetings. She makes learning the songs fun and easy! This spring, Molly will be the chair of All-‐ Sing, an All Campus Event where our sorority will compete in a singing competition against other organizations. Not only is Molly a leader in Zeta Tau Alpha, she also is active within the PanHellenic community. She is currently the Vice President of Correspondence. Her responsibilities expect her to adapt the Involvement Banner each semester and award it to the most deserving chapter. Molly also served as a Gamma Chi her junior and senior year, helping Potential New
Members find their new homes. On top of all that she does within the Greek community, Molly is striving for a Bachelors of Science in Food Science and Technology. This past summer, she interned for Bush Brothers and Company and received a student scholarship to attend the International Food Technologist Annual Meeting and Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. Molly worked 40 hours a week for 14 weeks during her summer break. Molly has truly made her mark among Zeta Tau Alpha and PanHellenic. She has shown that hard work and dedication can push us forward. We are proud to call her our sister and thankful for everything she has done!
