Reconnecting with my Fraternity Brothers

by Ashley Viloria

As you go through life, you’ll meet so many people – some of whom will become your dearest friends. 

Paul attended the University of Nebraska for college, and during that time, he joined a fraternity called Kappa Alpha Psi. His pledge class consisted of him and seven other men, and they all became very close friends. After graduation, most of them either stayed in Nebraska or moved east, but Paul had moved back home to California. Between the distance and life in general, they eventually lost touch. Before they knew it, two decades had passed by without any contact.

Fast forward to present time, Paul has been dealing with medical ailments for the past few years and he has been in and out of surgeries. During his recoveries, he’s had a lot of time to think about his life, including the friends he’s lost touch with. Needless to say, he was very delighted when one of his fraternity brothers reached out to him on Facebook to check up on him after he found out that Paul was recovering from spinal surgery. Through the brother that reached out, Paul was able to reconnect with five more from his pledge class. However, there was one remaining brother missing from the picture – Spence. Nobody was able to find or reach him, so Paul decided to search for Spence online.

Who's Calling Me?

Search any phone number to learn more about the owner!

Through a search on Google, Paul found Spokeo and entered Spence’s full name and last known state in the search bar. Paul found a listing for Spence and reached out to him using the most recent phone number listed. When Spence picked up, he was very surprised, but happy, to hear from Paul. Through conversation, they found out that they were actually both living in California now, and not too far from each other! After Paul found Spence on Spokeo, all eight pledge class brothers virtually reconnected via Zoom and caught up on each other’s lives. With Paul’s birthday coming up in June, they planned a trip to Belize for them to reunite in person, and to also introduce each other to their families. For Paul and his fraternity brothers, June cannot come fast enough!
