Zeta Tau Alpha puts a big emphasis on academics. We strive for academic excellence and always put school and classes first. We have required study hours each week. These hours help our sisters stay focused and achieve better grades. We hold a weekly study group in one of the large private rooms in the campus library. This time allows sisters to gather and influence each other to do better while also helping each other when a sister is struggling in a class or on a specific assignment. We not only influence each other in positive ways but we also do a weekly drawing for "Geek of the Week". The "Geek of the Week" is someone who has received an awesome grade on an assignment and is entered into a drawing for a gift card to a local boutique or restaurant. We as sisters only want the best for each other when it comes to school work because we know that when we do our best, the best will take care of the rest.
