Supporting Zeta Upsilon
We do what we can to help the sisters of Zeta Upsilon have the best possible collegiate sorority experience. Because only a few of our members live in the Cleveland area, much of what we do is long-distance.
Zeta Upsilon chapter house, fall '04
this is our number one priority - exec board has talked at length about ways to encourage the academic and career aspirations of the collegiate (and alumnae) members - some ideas include creating a ceremony to celebrate big personal (academic/leadership) milestones, a career advice network within which alumnae can mentor undergraduates, incentive programs to encourage the chapter as a whole. Look for progress in the coming year!
alums helped out at Family Weekend, letting parents know that there is life and success after graduation
good luck on finals - provide study tips, relaxation exercises, and small gifts
MTM members serve as advisors
also help recruit advisors for the board
Domestic Violence Awareness

we send the incoming chapter president a survival kit that includes Roberts Rules of Order, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, a case of her favorite soda, a calling card, a few small gifts and advice from past ZU chapter presidents.
make sure all ZU alumnae know the dates, times, dress codes for Recruitment and encourage those in the area to help out
