This site was created by Laura Figueroa
as a project for MMC3260- Communication
on the Internet, taught by Professor David Carlson at the University
of Florida. When I came to UF I had no inclinations of becoming "Greek",
all I had heard or seen were negative images and stories. Like many, I
did not know that there were other Greek organizations that catered towards
the needs of minorities. That is why I felt the need to create this site-
to do away with some of the myths of greek life, and open eyes to another
element of the greek community that is growing. Since the Spring of 2002
I have been a proud sister of Lambda
Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. I now serve as the President of the
UF Multicultural Greek Council.
