New York, NY (08/14/15) – Chi Upsilon Sigma officially welcomes its newest graduate chapter, Omega Mu. Chartered by twenty-four professional women, and led by the efforts of Jeannine Burton-Custis and Susan Huaccamayta, the chapter will serve the Southern New Jersey area. These women aspire to serve as a support system for area transplants and the local undergraduate chapter. Aside from hoping to increase alumni involvement and retention in the area, they plan to positively impact the Southern New Jersey community and create opportunities for alumnae to build relationships and support local area undergraduate chapters. Chi Upsilon Sigma looks forward to the chapter’s future achievements in the region.
