The Value of Face-to-Face Relationships and the Role of Kappa Sigma & Friends

“People are starving for genuine relationships, a sense of belonging, and a feeling of being known and understood,” writes Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer in “Face to Face: The Art of Human Connection. “Such relationships are hard to build by email, and even in person.”

Most of us learned how to make and maintain friends the old-fashioned way: handshakes, parties, membership in groups like PKT-Beta Gamma, real-time and in-person. As social media grows, we slip further and further behind its curtain. Even at our jobs, we rely on email and text, and have meetings and conferences over computer screens and microphones.

Making an effort for more face-to-face encounters almost seems daunting, especially for younger alumni among us; but it’s necessary. Start by thinking about the best times you had with PKT. Are these memories of text messages or social media posts? Of course not. They involve real friends and real-life events.

What’s stopping you from using that electronic device to plan more real-life memories?

Our alumni organizations EXISTS to help you to get more ACTUAL face time with friends and Brothers.

  • Attend Homecomings and reunions!
  • Plan mini-reunions with your pledge class or best friends
  • See which alumni are living in your area and plan a meet-up at a local bar or coffee shop

Our website www.pktpsu.com allows us to stay in touch with all of our PKT Brothers by providing a directory and the ability to share information about our lives. Drop us all a line and share some news, tell us who you’d like to reconnect with, throw out a suggestion for the next PKT get-together.

Life is too short to spend it on a screen. Don’t wait. Make a commitment to reconnecting face-to-face before the year ends.
