UIFI Leader

Welcome home Amanda! Sort of 😉 Glad you made it home to Massachusetts safely! We are all so proud of you! Couldn’t have thought of anyone better to represent Chi Upsilon Sigma at the UIFI Conference! From the sound of it you were representing all Latino Greeks almost all my yourself!

For those unfamiliar with the honor of attending this Conference, here is an exert to give you an idea:

UIFI is a 5-day journey, with each day building upon the one previous. UIFI offers participants the opportunity to explore, define, and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their fraternity or sorority, and grow to expect values based action from themselves and those they lead.

The institute is interactive, fun, challenging, and intentional. During a session, you’ll experience hands-on interaction, experiential activities, discussion time, and personal reflection time. There is considerable focus on the positive aspects of fraternities and sororities in addition to important discussions about issues that threaten our future. It really doesn’t matter what session you attend, the curriculum is the same at all of them.

Taking the ride means being willing to talk about how fraternity and sorority leaders live their ritual. It means having the courage, character, and commitment to do what is right and devise a plan to change the current direction of some fraternities and sororities. It means walking the talk. It means having a vision of positive change.

Each UIFI participant is challenged to develop a personal plan of action and to make a commitment to leading their organizations through the change process. It is a unique challenge, one that each participant must be willing to undertake.


About CUS - Alpha Zeta Chapter

Picture In the Spring of 2002 a group of women realized their common want and need for an organization that was something greater than what already existed at Texas Christian University; thus leading to the beginning of a concept that would turn out to have extraordinary outcomes. After many weeks of researching different sororities they came upon Corazones Unidos Siempre Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Incorporated and upon this discovery the searching ended. The women wanted an organization that embodied sisterhood, education, and community service. This and much more was exemplified by Chi Upsilon Sigma. The two devoted women, Eugenia Redondo and Lisa Marie Cano, established the Alpha Zeta Colony at TCU on Sunday, April 13, 2003. Alpha Zeta Colony received Chapter recognition on April 11, 2005. The women of Alpha Zeta dedicate their efforts to promote the sorority’s motto, “Wisdom through Education” as well as educate the public on social, political, cultural, and educational issues. As Alpha Zeta continues to grow with women who are not content to accept an ordinary life, who are willing to make a difference and who are not afraid to voice their opinion, the Light of CUS will never grow dim.
