Iota Theta strives to give every member the opportunity to grow into strong leaders. Our chapter provides leadership positions through our programs, service, and executive council. In addition to positions, Iota Theta hosts events and workshops to help guide the women in our chapter to develop qualities of strong leadership.

ZTA's are involved all over Georgia Tech's campus.  It is important for us to be present on campus in more than just ZTA events; we strive to support campus organizations to further our college community.

Sisters serve on Executive Boards for organizations such as SGA, Executive Round Table, Engineering Without Borders, FTK, Pediatric Technology Business Club, Mock Trial, GT Relay for Life, Georgia Tech Ambassadors, and more.  We are proud to have members that are making a difference on campus by leading as the President of GT H.E.R.O’s, BOPSOP, Pre-Soma and the American Marketing Association. Zetas have also been founders of the whY, Project Smile, GT Habitat for Humanity, and much more. 

The members of Iota Theta also have sisters involved in GT Lacrosse and Tennis clubs, BME Robots club, Robogals, Enchanted Encounters, ambassadors for the different colleges, GreyHat, and more.

As a Zeta Tau Alpha, you can always find  a sister involved in what you are interested in from Student Government Programs, to Tech Tour Guides, to FASET, to Greek Affairs, and more. Whether you love intramurals, academics, leadership, or philanthropy - the opportunities are countless!

 


 
Carly Wood: Varsity Cheer Team captain   “When I got into Georgia Tech, I knew right away that trying out for the cheer team was my next step. Weather on the sidelines of Bobby Dodd in the fall, or on the stage at Nationals in the spring, we get to represent Georgia Tech on many levels. We hold ourselves to the culture of family and are always spending time outside of practice together whether studying, getting extra practice in, or just hanging out on the weekends. We constantly strive to learn new skills and help our teammates do the same. As a member of the gold squad my freshman and sophomore year, I wanted to run for captain my Junior year. I saw an opportunity for growth and wanted to give back to a program that continues to give so much to its athletes. Being captain of Gold Squad was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve been apart of. I was able to gain a deeper insight into all that it takes for Georgia Tech cheer to run. As captain, I strived to create a clear coach to athlete relationship, transparency when creating rosters, and worked towards creating a new atmosphere surrounding competition. Last year Georgia Tech Cheer brought 2 teams to nationals where we competed in the Intermediate Large Coed and Advanced Small Coed divisions, placing 5th in each. It was an honor to be captain of an incredible group of athletes and I am looking forward to being apart of Georgia Tech cheer for more years to come.”

Schayne Fox: President of Project Smile 2018-2019   “I got involved with Project Smile before it was even called Project Smile! The organization was called Enchanted Encounters and was mainly focused on bringing Disney characters to local pediatric hospitals for events. While I was the Fundraising chair of Enchanted Encounters I noticed a huge disconnect between our mission, what hospitals and patients needed, and what GT students wanted to be involved in. We struggled to recruit males since we seemed very “princess” focused, so when I became President, we redirected our overarching purpose to include more people through updating our name and generalizing our events to cater to the hospitals’ current needs/wants. So now we pretty much plan events based on whatever seems reasonable at the time i.e. holidays, football/basketball season, etc. We’ve partnered with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at 3 of their locations (expanding to Hughes Spalding was a new endeavor this semester) and Ronald McDonald House - Egleston, and our member-base has grown to around 70 from our 20 or so last year. A lot of major changes…thankfully I’ve been blessed with a very capable and responsive exec board to support our mission and growing numbers, and I’m very excited to see where PS goes once I’m no longer on exec!”

Carson Myers  “One of my favorite things about Georgia Tech is the diverse campus community that is filled with passionate and unique people. Through my involvement on campus, I’ve met inspiring students who have helped mold me into who I am today. I have loved welcoming new students as a FASET leader, GT 1000 Team Leader, and Summer Sessions intern in the Office of Undergraduate Education. Being around excited incoming students always reminds me of how lucky I am to be at Georgia Tech! I also serve as Georgia Tech Student Ambassador and have cherished the opportunity to give back to the alumni, faculty, and staff that make GT such a special place. In addition to these involvements, I have to shout out to the School of Music! I have enjoyed exploring the field of music technology with the numerous creators in the Couch building. Being in the Women in Music Technology group has connected me with some of the female pioneers in the field and as a School of Music Ambassador, I’ve gotten to share this excitement with potential incoming students. This past year, I have been doing research in the GT Brain Music Lab and discovered this passion for research I didn’t even know I had. I have also loved the ability to relax and unwind in Chamber Choir and Jazz Combo. I have found that the more time I devote to different groups within the GT community, the more fulfilled I feel at Georgia Tech! I am so grateful for my time here already and can’t wait to see what’s in store for my next two years.”
