MLK Day of Service

Join the women of Alpha Zeta as they participate in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King this Monday. Our very own Amanda Kruse will be participating as a site leader, so feel free to stop her if you have any questions, or just want to say hello.  This great event is hosted by NAACP and Alpha Phi Alpha.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Be Great. Serve.

January 18, 2010 12 noon-5:00pm (followed by a complimentary dinner)

Initiated by Congress in 1994, King Day of Service is a national day of community service grounded in Dr. King’s teachings of nonviolence and social justice.  Through a collaboration with campus departments and student organizations, we seek to provide relational service opportunities in Tarrant County for TCU students on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Consider kicking off the new year with a day of service and resolving to serve throughout 2010 in the local community. Make it a day on, not a day off.

5:00pm     Arrive back at TCU for reflection, and dinner!!!


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.
