In a word, Triangle is a home; a family-like atmosphere. The word “fraternity” implies Brotherhood, a close group of friends sharing common interests that often live together. Triangle provides an excellent place for students in technical fields to satisfy the many needs of college life.
Since the first social fraternity was founded in 1776, college fraternities and sororities have grown, built upon the foundation of serving the student and his or her Alma Mater. In the chapter home of the fraternity, there is an opportunity to supplement the teachings of the classroom. In Triangle, the student learns lessons of group living, personality and character development, in an atmosphere designed for fullest benefit to the individual.
Triangle, thus, provides a bridge between academic life and a career, as well as a foundation for success in the years after college.
Triangle limits its membership to students majoring in engineering, architecture, and the sciences. Thus, Triangle is unique in the North-American Interfraternity Conference, being the only member fraternity that selects its membership from these majors. This is done to draw together outstanding men with similar course work and career goals.
There are many reasons for joining a fraternity. The chief reason for joining Triangle is the friendship of the members you meet and come to know. Underlying it all will be the knowledge that you can follow the trail blazed by Triangle’s outstanding members to leadership in the field of your choice.
You may ask, “What are Triangle’s Greek letters?” Unlike most other social fraternities, Triangle does not have a Greek letter name. This is one point that makes Triangle stand out in contrast with other fraternities on its campuses. While some students may have problems sorting one name from another, Triangle is easy to recognize as the only national fraternity for students in Engineering, Architecture and Science.
Triangle has a lot to offer academically, socially, and athletically. Preparing yourself for your future career and achieving Academic success are your primary goal at the university. Even so, Social Participation provides an enhancement from the busy and challenging college curriculum. Athletics are important because they encourage physical ability as well as competition and cooperation.
Triangle understands the balance between these and strives to attain a level of excellence in each of the three areas while maintaining a friendly, comfortable atmosphere where lifelong friendships can be made.
