Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity

Our founding fathers were men who believed that the minority population at colleges and universities were not getting the attention they so desperately needed to advance their academic successes. With this notion, they created Lambda Sigma Upsilon to act as a support group for minorities, as well as provide a family away from home. As proof to this, our founders developed 4 Goals that would embody the purpose of Lambda Sigma Upsilon.

Goals
The 4 Goals that would embody the purpose of Lambda Sigma Upsilon are:

Academic excellence – Ensuring that our brothers earn their degree is a main focus. We believe that our brothers will go beyond the extra mile to ensure that all academic goals are achieved.
Cultural awareness and diversity – Lambda Sigma Upsilon maintains a strong emphasis on cultural awareness. We do not go by a typical “Greek” system (Alpha, Beta, etc.); rather we let each new chapter create its own identity, ensuring that their legacy is passed down. The diversity of the fraternity is very evident amongst our brotherhood. Over 40 countries are represented in Lambda Sigma Upsilon, thus making us one of the most diverse fraternities in the country.
Brotherhood – We are proud of our unique and diverse brotherhood. Brotherhood provides a sense of family away from home while also helping individuals gain a new perspective on college life. Brotherhood also provides various networking opportunities with individuals who share common interests.
Being role models to students of institution of higher education and the community at large – Lambda Sigma Upsilon is well known for its service to the campus community and the community-at-large.

Mission
We, the brothers of Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, Inc., strongly believe that many individual and collective successes can be achieved through the efforts of a culturally diverse brotherhood of college and university men who, through close association with each other, maintain honesty, commitment, respect, and trust.
The maintenance of these qualities is nurtured in large part through the diversity of culture and through self-awareness and self-respect. Among the results of actions taken in these states of being are the promotion of friendship and Brotherhood, the development of individual character, the advancement of justice and opportunity, and the acquisition of soundness and excellence in education.

THIS IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BROTHERHOOD!!!

Special Events/Accomplishments
The Pantheon Chapter of Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity Incorporated at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College was established on October 27, 2012. Though it is fairly a new fraternity on campus, the chapter has done various local events such as Time Management and Professionalism Workshops, a Welcome Back Dinner each semester for its brothers and possible interests, charity events to help fund HIV/AIDS research, Study Group activities during finals, Toy Drive, and Upsilon Week to name a few. This semester, the fraternity started off strong by helping students move-in during Welcome Week. A future activity for the following month to look forward to is during Hispanic Heritage and the Fiesta del Pueblo where brothers will perform a step and stroll presentation. Make sure to attend to see why we are the national step and stroll champions.

Some nationwide projects include charity sports games, AIDS Walks, NetAid Global Campaign for Education, the American Red Cross Remembers September 11th Campaign, MercyCorps for Haiti, Keep a Child Alive and most recently the “Live Safe Campaign”.
