Brother David Christian '65 recently got in touch with us to talk about his Alpha Tau days. Read on to learn about his brothers' competitive instincts and why his wife refuses to wear white and gold.

"My wife, Jane, and I spend most of our time with our beautiful grandchildren! Three girls (ages 13, 3, and 1) and one boy (age 11). (The Christians are shown at left with their granddaughter Christian.) I live with Jane, my daughter Molly, her two daughters, and two female dogs. I am very lucky!! Jane will not allow me to dress her (or anyone else in my household) in White and Gold. She graduated from UGA!

What are your favorite memories from Kappa Sigma?

DC: The parties and the friendships which have lasted until today. The Kappa Sigma football games, the Tech football games, the poker games in the “Pit."                          

What brother(s) have most positively influenced your life? How/why?

DC: There are too many to list. We have done many good things (and probably some not so good) together through the years.

In what ways did Kappa Sigma impact or shape your life? Why are you proud/glad to be a member?

DC: I like that we did not want to lose anything (sports games, parties, fights, girls, etc.!).

Do you still keep in touch with any brothers? Who and how?

DC: Twice a month (in Atlanta), a group called FATBACK (which stands for Friday Artery Threatening Breakfast And Coffee Klub and includes some Alpha Tau’s) meets once for breakfast and once for lunch. Please e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to be included!

What has been the best part of the alumni experience for you?

DC: Going to reunions and football games. Many Alpha Tau’s have been involved in my life (as a positive influence) through the years and I have greatly enjoyed them.
