Alpha Zeta Chapter Recognized at C.U.S. National Banquet

Annually, Chi Upsilon Sigma holds an anniversary banquet to recognize its members for their continuous hard work and dedication through educating and servicing their communities. This year, an inaugural award entitled the “Heart of the Community” was presented to Senator Menendez of New Jersey, recognizing his efforts to advocate, represent and impact the Latino community.

Among this year’s national awards, our chapter celebrates the accomplishments of Alpha Zeta Chapter.  Specifically, we congratulate Alpha Zeta Chapter for earning the Women of Wisdom award, which is presented to the chapter with the highest grade point average at the national level.

Their program, “Divided Nation”, which sought to educate the student body of the differences between the two primary political parties and encouraged attendees to not be afraid to go beyond the traditional party norms, earned them the Political Awareness award.

Even more exciting, Felisha Treviño was awarded the Triad Award (Sister of the Year), which recognizes an undergraduate sister for going above and beyond her call of duty.  She is a chapter leader and supporter of others.  “Felisha is mature, well spoken, detail oriented and highly motivated.  She manages a 21 hour school load, with a nursing major, and as an Army ROTC Cadet,  while maintaining a 4.0 semester GPA.  She is a member Phi Sigma Iota – Foreign Language Honor Society, and member of Order of Omega,” said Founding Chapter Sister Lisa Cano.

Felisha joins four other sisters in the chapter who hold the title:

2006 Sister of the Year Eugenia Redondo
2007 Sister of the Year Erica Marez
2008 Sister of the Year – Narcely Ruiz
2009 Sister of the Year – Beatriz Gutierrez

Congratulations to Alpha Zeta Chapter and Felisha Treviño!


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.
