Happy 10 Year Anniversary Roxanna!

We have an amazing sister that deserves to be in the spot light! Roxanna Latifi has dedicated 10 years of hard work and passion to the sisterhood and we celebrate her 10 year anniversary in this family. We asked her to share some of her to reflect on the impact CUS has had in her life and this is what she had to say…

RoxyHow has CUS helped define your character, service and leadership?

“Going through the CUS educational process gave me the opportunity to honor the sacrifices people made before me. It challenges you. By understanding those sacrifices, we are empowered to become better women of character to serve and to lead.”

What have you enjoyed most about being a sister of CUS?

“That’s a hard one. The most? The laughter, maybe. The ability to be myself and have sisters love me with the good and not so good. The way we educate and empower ourselves and the community. The ability to walk up to a woman who is wearing Chi Upsilon Sigma across her heart (literally and figuratively) and know she is my sister. But you’d have to join first to really know that feeling!”

What advice would you give to those interested in CUS?        

“Take CUS out for an interview. Make sure our values are in line with yours. If they are, there will be no regrets.”

Happy 10 year anniversary Roxy, we love you!!


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.
