Meet Beta Omicron

The sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha at the University of South Carolina would like to welcome you to our chapter website! We pride ourselves on a variety of ideals including academics, leadership, service and sisterhood. Consistent with the thoughts of our Founders, our purpose is to create an environment for our members which foster high ideals of friendship, promote educational and cultural interests and develop in them high qualities of character. 


My name is Shannen Cloherty, and i am honored to serve as the 2020 Collegiate Chapter President for the Beta Omicron Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha.

Welcome to our chapter website and thank you for showing interest in our sisterhood! We invite you to explore the site and learn about our history, philanthropy, involvement, sisterhood, and more.

When I went through the recruitment process as a sophomore, I was looking to get involved in something bigger than myself. I decided to rush at the last minute which ultimately was the best decision in my life so far, as I found my home in Zeta Tau Alpha.


This chapter has shaped me into the woman I am today, showing me my true potential and challenging me to be the best version of myself every single day. The women I am surrounded by are the most empowering, loving, inspiring, and genuine people I have come to know. This organization has given me so many amazing opportunities and its values are close to my heart. I will be forever grateful to Zeta Tau Alpha for allowing me to recognize my potential and for bringing me my forever friends.


If you are interested in going through the recruitment process to become a Panhellenic Woman, this is my advice to you: be true to who you are because that is how you will grow, enjoy the experience through its ups and its downs, and be open. Recruitment is exciting and it can also be stressful, but it is more than worth it. We look forward to meeting you and are excited for you to embark on this journey!


Zeta Love and Mine,

Shannen Cloherty
