Chi Upsilon Sigma moves on to the next round in “Sprite Step Off” Competition

Three dedicated undergraduate women of Chi Upsilon Sigma’s Xi Chapter, University of Delaware, have qualified for the Regional Semi-Finals making Chi Upsilon Sigma the first Latino organization to participate in the competition thus far.

New York, NY (10/06/09) — Corazones Unidos Siempre, Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Inc. (CUS) would like to congratulate Odette Fuentes, Vanessa Pabon Garcia and Talia Yanowitz for their placement in the national Sprite Step Off competition this past weekend at Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia.  Their fourth place during the Mid-Atlantic qualifying round moves them on to the Regional Semi-Finals which take place on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at the University of South Carolina. These three dedicated women have become the first team from a Latino Greek organization to compete in the largely Divine Nine competition.

The competition is giving these women an opportunity to compete against historically Black Greek letter organizations (BGLOs) that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC).  As a member of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, Inc. (NALFO), CUS is proud and honored to compete and qualify in such a large national competition.

The Sprite Step Off competition is the largest National Step competition with a $1.5 million prize pool in college scholarships.  The competition is also rallying undergraduates across the country to contribute 1.5 million hours in community service.  For more information please visit www.spritestepoff.com


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.
