When you join CUS, not only do you gain sisters, but you also inherit sisters’ families.  There’s nothing more special to me, for instance, than to feel the comfort of my extended family, Lisa’s (AZ/A) mother, father and sister sitting behind me at church.  It’s a tradition now; we all sit in the same place come Sunday mornings.  But it’s not just about them sitting behind and the protection I feel; it’s about them sharing with me some of the most intimate moments in my life.  They see me smile, worship and praise God and sometimes even cry.  I love seeing the interactions between my mom, Lisa’s mom and family and Erica’s mom and family at church.

This morning, I had another warm moment.  My line sister Yuri (and one of the closest women in my life) shared with our chapter her thoughts regarding the growth of her brother.  At that moment, I realized how important this little boy is to me too.   He is doing well in school and football.  Most recently, he was accepted into the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra.  I can’t believe he is growing up so fast.  When I met JL, he was in middle school and now he is about to be a sophomore in high school.  Our little man is growing up into a “responsible MAN”.

Line sister: I am as proud of JL as you are, and I’m also proud of you.  Yes! Your parents set an amazing foundation for you and your brothers, but as the older sister, it has been you who has committed fully to carry out their legacy by setting a good example.  I’m so proud of you, Saulo and JL.  I feel honored to be your sister and to be able to witness your family legacy come to fruition.

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.
