It’s Bid Day, and in a few minutes, you are about to meet the future of your chapter! An exciting moment. The soon-to-be sisters who are about to run toward you represent the next generation of best friends, Little Sisters, study buddies and leaders of your chapter. There is a lot riding on their amazing-ness.
You hope they are as intelligent, kind, friendly, fun, involved and driven as they came across in recruitment! But yet … sometimes, our ZTA sisters call them “our Zeta babies.”
It just doesn’t add up.
While we understand that Zetas who use this term likely mean it as a term of endearment, new members are not babies. If we want them to be the members and leaders we recruited them to be, we need to call them and treat them like the women they are.
