It's so much more than just Greek letters.

Why I Love Zeta Tau Alpha
Cassidy Springer

Oh yes, another sorority girl writing a sorority article. But, Zeta Tau Alpha has changed my college experience and my life in ways I wasn't expecting. In the fall of 2015, I went through sorority recruitment. I always knew I wanted to rush but never really knew what to expect. The very first day, my very first house was this giant, beautiful house with the letters "ZTA" on it. To say I was nervous was an understatement. But, the girls there made me feel so comfortable and at home. 5 days and 4 rounds later, I opened a bid card with the words "Zeta Tau Alpha" on it. Little did I know, this would be my home away from home.

At first, I wasn't sure if I'd fit in. The adjustment period was not easy but I met girls who have changed my life in the best of ways in this time. I met girls who would laugh with me, cry with me, vent to me, let me vent, and eat with me at all hours of the day. They are my home, my comfort zone, and my future bridesmaids and I owe that to Zeta.

Our philanthropy is Breast Cancer Awareness & Education, which is something so close to my heart. As someone who's grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple years ago, supporting the battle of this terrible disease is something I do feel passionate about. With it being October, we're in the middle of breast cancer awareness month. This month for Zeta Tau Alpha, the National Football League, and many others are dedicated those the fighters, survivors, and family members of those beating the ever living hell out of cancer. The passion towards these women is another reason why I love ZTA.

Zeta has presented opportunities to me, given me a home away from home, and allowed me to unapologetically be myself no matter what. Zeta Tau Alpha is so much more than just three greek letters.

I personally love using song lyrics as my Instagram captions, especially from songs that I love or that mean a lot to me, and I happen to love Harry Styles and all of his songs! So I made a list of lyrics from each of his songs that you could use in your next Instagram caption.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.
