Message from the Chapter President

Hello Fellow Huskies,

My name is Curtis Gongora, and I am a PROUD Hermano of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Incorporated. I am the current chapter President of the Incomparable Beta Iota chapter founded at the University of Connecticut on April 11, 2009 by 6 strong and independent young men. As a chapter, we are a trailblazing group of determined individuals that strive to be a voice for the under-represented and marginalized by cherishing their identity in pursuit of our pillars- Academics, Brotherhood, Culture, and Service!

Being an Hermano of my fraternity, and more specifically - my chapter, has brought me countless opportunities to travel, learn to find & utilize resources around me, ask for help, succeed academically, prioritize my professional development, and more than anything; gain a true sense of brotherhood. I’ve never grown more and been so in touch with myself as a person until joining La Fraternidad! For that I am grateful PARA SIEMPRE!

President: Daniel Lopez
