For Michael Hickman ’88 (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), Kappa Sigma was the beginning of the rest of his life. In addition to discovering a family of brothers and valuable life skills, he found his future bride, and now his son carries on as a legacy. Here’s a look into his life in the house and why he gives back. 

Hickman pledged to Kappa Sigma because of the immediate connection with the brothers. “I felt at home with the Brothers and liked several of my potential pledge brothers. They weren't the jocks, grease-heads, druggies, preppies, etc. Just regular people from all over the country.” 

One of his best memories is “dancing with the girl who would eventually be my bride. She was a Little Sister and Chapter Sweetheart.”  

Kappa Sigma left Hickman with a variety of skills that he wants to pass on to future brothers. “I think it improved my social skills, taught me leadership, and taught me conflict resolution and networking. I think these skill sets are important to foster in the next generation(s).” 

“I've been fortunate to have many of my son's generation also choose Kappa Sigma at a variety of different colleges. I was able to initiate my son into the Chapter at Georgia State.” 

He believes that if more alumni give back, “the house could become more inviting to alumni by making it a place to gather at times besides just football Saturdays. TV's in the Pit would be a great addition.” 

Without Kappa Sigma, I wouldn't have so many lifelong friends and Brothers.
