Triangle is a "home," a family-like atmosphere. The word "fraternity" implies Brotherhood, a close group of friends sharing common interests that live together. Triangle provides an excellent place for students in technical fields to satisfy the many needs of college life.

Triangle limits its membership to students majoring in engineering, architecture, and the sciences. In other words, Triangle only accepts men working towards a Bachelor of Engineering, Architecture, or Science. 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 bring together outstanding men with similar interests 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 nationwide. 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.

Unlike most other social fraternities, Triangle does not have a Greek letter name. This is one point that makes Triangle stand out against other fraternities. While some students may have problems sorting one name from another, Triangle is easily recognized as the only national fraternity for students exclusively in Engineering, Architecture and Science.

Triangle has much 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 events give you a break 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.
