Mayor declares ‘Go Purple Day’ for TCU Horned Frogs



Horned Frog fever has reached City Hall.

Mayor Mike Moncrief has declared Friday “Go Purple Day” and encouraged residents to wear purple on the eve of No. 4 Texas Christian University’s football game against the No. 16 Utah Utes.

Several Fort Worth landmarks, including the Avenue of Lights on West Lancaster Avenue, the Chesapeake Energy headquarters and downtown buildings, will illuminate purple lights this weekend.

“Coach [Gary] Patterson and his team have placed Fort Worth on the national stage, and we are all very proud,�” Moncrief said. “Let’s show our visitors from Utah we are ready and have our game faces on, as well as our colors.”

Amon G. Carter Stadium has sold out for the 6:30 p.m. Saturday kickoff, and ESPN’s College Football GameDay show will broadcast from the campus commons Saturday morning.

TCU is hoping to finish the season unbeaten for the first time since 1938.


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.
