Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority Inc.
Corazones Unidos Siempre, Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1980 as the first independent Latina sorority in the Nation. Chi Upsilon Sigma was made a reality because seven women had aspirations of creating an organization to promote leadership among their community and more importantly a sisterhood, a home away from home. Although the organization’s roots are in the Latino culture, Chi Upsilon Sigma is not restricted to just Latin women, instead it welcomes women of all ethnicities who value the ideals of womanhood, individuality, leadership and service.
Alpha Psi Chapter was founded on April 12, 2008 by seven women with a strong desire to make an impact on their college campus. Officially gaining recognition in the Spring of 2009 by the Inter Greek Council, Alpha Psi Chapter hopes that through their educational programs and community service, they make a lasting impression on the SUNY Oneonta community and continue to pave the way for strong, independent women as was started almost 30 years ago.
