The babies epidemic.
For the last few years, we’ve seen our many sorority women who once referred to their sisters as new members take a more parental approach, calling these 18- to 20-year-old women “babies.”
Wow. We actually want these members to be intelligent, talented, strong, mature and successful members—women. We want them to make good choices and smart decisions as sisters. We want them to be our future leaders. And yet, some of us are calling them “babies.” It doesn’t add up.
Why? Because they’re not babies. Here are 9 reasons why.

Lift new members up by treating them like the amazing women they are!
National Hazing Prevention Week 2013 was Sept. 23-27. To educate our members and others about hazing prevention, Zeta Tau Alpha developed lists (inspired by BuzzFeed) to highlight positive member experiences and combat hazing. While these lists might be funny, hazing is not a joke. Join ZTA to end hazing by doing the right thing, for the right reason, all the time.
