To offset costs involved with registering a new member and with implementing programs geared towards recruitment, the Penn State Chapter of Triangle charges new members a $350 fee upon joining the organization. This is standard practice among Greek organizations.
Our chapter refunds this fee to new members who sign a housing contract beginning the semester following their initiation. This is a special, one-time incentive to promote living in the fraternity house. The $350 is not paid out but is deducted from the first semester’s rent by the Alumni Executive Board.
