Representing TeXas at Ocean eXposure!!

In a summer where the sweltering heat exceeds past 100°F for over 40 consecutive days in the Lone Star State, what can compare to spending time in another state baking by the beach and being with your sisters all across the nation? Alpha Iota Chapter, located at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI, celebrated its 8th annual “Ocean eXposure” event where sisters and other Greeks all across the nation came to Rhode Island on Saturday, July 30, 2011 for barbecue, swimming, games, music and Greek unity. Besides eXperiencing the ocean CUS style, profits made from the event go to our national philanthropy “I Have a Dream” Foundation (IHAD). Escaping the calidity, meeting new people and donating to philanthropy? Win!
To take part in this annual celebration, all the way from Texas and our own chapter, Alpha Zeta, three of our sisters traveled to Ocean eXposure: Amanda Kruse (Alpha Zeta/Eta #4), Carolina Chavarria (Alpha Zeta/Iota #1), and Sandy Jacquez (Alpha Zeta/Lambda #1). Instead of being reclusive within our chapter, these women got to meet countless people from different Greek organizations across the U.S.!

“…I enjoyed getting to meet new sisters… especially spending quality time and bonding with my sisters Sandy Jacquez (Alpha Zeta/Lambda) and Marie Deyro (Eta/Iota)…” –Carolina Chavarria

We’re so thrilled that a few of our chapter sisters not only represented us at this event, but also Texas by going – and that they had a blast! Hopefully next year more of our sisters in Texas will be able to attend, and that by that time in 2012 we won’t be suffering under this heat wave any longer.

Congratulations, Alpha Iota Chapter of Chi Upsilon Sigma, National Latin Sorority, Inc. for a profitable event yet again, and we wish you all the best in your upcoming year!

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.
