Quenell Redden, President

The Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Inc., was established on November 21,1981, at Rutgers University. The Fiery Jhansi Chapter was founded at The Pennsylvania State University on November 10, 1996, as the first chapter to be established outside of New Jersey. The organization’s values of academic excellence, service, and unity among women serve as a guide for their initiatives. They are active delegates to the Latino Caucus and the Black Caucus, and often partner with Latina/o organizations for special events. The sorority’s members have accomplished over twenty hours of community service during the spring 2019 semester and will be hosting the Recognizing and Celebrating Ethnicities event in April.  The organization aims to continue seeking opportunities to promote cultural awareness and diversity.
