Laura Figueroa 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.
