These friends have their differences.
Trey Halterman, Jamie Porter, Jay Goss and Anthony Reynolds are from different cities and had different majors in college. They have gone on after graduating from UT Martin to work in different industries and live in different parts of the country.
In fact, half of the group had already graduated well before the other half arrived on campus.
But this summer, they and their families spent a week in Perdido Key, Florida and brought a bit of UT Martin with them to celebrate the things they have in common. Among them, their shared love for Sigma Phi Epsilon.
“SigEp has been a big part of my life since joining in 2001,” said Reynolds. “The fact that my family can now get together with other alumni and enjoy a vacation together is amazing. It has made a huge difference in my life and continues to allow me to have awesome experiences with my brothers.”
The fraternity experience is changing for college students today. Men on campus are looking for a supportive group of friends that share in their values, not simply some combination of Greek letters to put on a t-shirt. For these alumni and thousands of others nationwide, those meaningful friendships have lasted long after their time in college.
