Chi Upsilon Sigma (CUS) was founded on April 29, 1980 by seven Latinas at the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers University. On April 14, 2017, the Alpha Sigma Colony of Chi Upsilon Sigma was reactivated at Radford University by three women to bring a new and different Greek organization to the campus. Our founders had the desire to create an organization to promote leadership among the Latino community. More importantly, it was their desire to create a sisterhood - a place away from home in which the members could feel the strong sense of family that is such a force in the Latino culture.
Make your gift today to help us lead the way in supporting Greek Leadership Training for all Fraternity and Sorority Life chapters at Radford University and assisting students with urgent housing, food or financial needs!
