Greek Support

One of the greatest things about being a Cussie is the respect and support we recieve across the country. It’s the best feeling when we visit somewhere and say we’re part of Chi Upsilon Sigma, and the response is usually, “Ohhhh Cussies, I’ve heard about you! Man I heard you were hardcore!” Hardcore in Greek lingo is a term of respect and endearment. 🙂 It doesn’t mean we haze women! In fact, it’s quite the opposite; they know our process is one of great pride and discipline.

In return for the national support, we give the same back. Throughout the year we’ll attend other organizations’ national conventions. We may not wear the same letters but we all stand for one thing- bringing together our community to promote higher education.

This summer Amanda Kruse, along with other sisters near and far, had the opportunity to attend the national convention of Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc.  It was a great experience!

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.

    This is amazing and what Greek Unity is all about. It really is about promoting Latinos, women and minorities in higher education. It’s also great to see NALFO Greeks supporting one another.
