This August, Epsilon took 134 New Members to be apart of PC'20! Recruitment was amazing and our teams killed it. The New Members will be initiated the weekend of October 10th and we will share them here on our site. How exciting!
The month of October also represents Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which Zeta Tau Alpha takes great pride in participating in, as this is our philanthropy. Follow along on our social media and the site to see what our chapter is doing to celebrate. Be sure to check out the hashtag #ZTATHINKPINK and our philanthropy page to see more!
Our national Founder's Day is October 15th! Follow along on our Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms to see how we are celebrating.
At Epsilon, we are proud to be both Arkansas Razorbacks and Arkansas Zetas! Since 1903, we have been home to some of the brightest and most wonderful women at the University of Arkansas. Membership in ZTA not only brings with it countless memories and experiences which will shape its members for years to come but also a sisterhood that cannot be broken and an experience of a lifetime.
We take pride in our campus involvement, community outreach, service to Breast Cancer Awareness and Education, academics, friendships and much much more. Feel free to look around our site and see how truly amazing it is to be an Arkansas Zeta!
ZTA is a lifetime of commitment, support, and opportunity awaiting you. It marks the beginning of a relationship that lasts for a lifetime.
who are we?
We are leaders. We are fearless. We are passionate and intelligent. The women of Epsilon are many things, but mostly we are family. Each woman in this chapter has a unique story that brought them into this sisterhood. Founded in Fayetteville, Arkansas, this chapter has united women from all over the country under three single letters for years. Since 1903, Epsilon has formed relationships, trained leaders, and introduced women to their future bridesmaids. It is more than a sorority. It is a family, and it is our home.

a message from our president,
“Zeta Tau Alpha has shown me true friendship and loyalty even through the toughest of times. I am constantly inspired and have learned so much through my time as a member that I will carry with me into all seasons of life. I am so grateful to call Epsilon home. The relationships I have developed within the walls of 530 N Oakland Ave and beyond are authentic and encouraging. Beyond that, I am shown the true magnitude of what it means to be a Zeta Tau Alpha when I am constantly met with encouraging sisters and mentors across the country. From leadership conferences to convention, to Zeta Day and more, I can always count on my Zeta sisters around the world to be there to welcome me with open arms. Love really is the greatest of all things, and I am always reminded of that through my journey in ZTA. As I embark on my final year as a collegiate member, it’s a bittersweet feeling. I am always reminded that wherever life takes us beyond these 4 years, the strength and meaning behind being a Zeta Tau Alpha will forever remain true. This sisterhood has changed my life for the better & I am forever grateful for the impact and love ZTA (especially Epsilon) always shows me!”
about Zeta Tau Alpha and the Epsilon chapter
Zeta Tau Alpha was founded by nine women who imagined an organization that would not only strengthen their friendships but unite them under love, the greatest of all things. More than 120 years later, hundreds of thousands of women have come to know this sisterhood and can call themselves a member of ZTA.
breast cancer education and awareness
Zeta Tau Alpha’s national philanthropy is breast cancer education and awareness. One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, so this cause is personal. Breast cancer touches many lives. Through local and national partnerships, campus and community initiatives, and the distribution of millions of pink ribbons since 1992, ZTA collegiate and alumnae members are dedicated to our philanthropy. By spreading the message of breast cancer education and awareness, ZTA sisters are determined to diminish this disease.
530 North oakland avenue
We have over 60 girls living in our big, white house that we call home. As recent as 2017, our house was renovated and had an entirely new portion added on, including a new chapter room and dining area. If the walls of Epsilon could talk, they would speak about memories, laughter, and late-night talks that have been apart of our chapter house since 1903. The "Zouse" is a place to study, relax, dine, and bond with sisters. It is cheerful and inviting, welcoming sisters home years after they graduate from the University of Arkansas.
