TRIANGLE FRATERNITY

In order to have a better world, we must first have a world of better men.

BASIC INFORMATION

It was in the fall of 1906 that sixteen civil engineering juniors at the University of Illinois began the association that became Triangle Fraternity. These Founders based their organization on the principles of honor, friendship, character, brotherhood, and courage.

FRATERNITY LEADERSHIP

The National Headquarters houses three entities- Triangle Fraternity, the Triangle Education Foundation, and the Triangle Building & Housing Corporation- which make up the greater fraternity. From the beginning, Triangle has been led by extraordinary men.

OUR CHAPTERS

Over the course of more than a century, Triangle Fraternity has evolved from an idea devised by sixteen men, to a brotherhood of more than 25,000 members. Today, Triangle has 39 active chapters and 6 colonies and interest groups across 25 states. Though different from campus to campus, one element remains the same. All members are committed to building a better world.

The Founding of Triangle Fraternity

Triangle’s origin came from the desire of some congenial college friends to extend their friendship, not only through college but also for life. It was in the fall of 1906 that sixteen civil engineering juniors at the University of Illinois began the association that became Triangle Fraternity.  These Founders based their organization on the principles of honor, friendship, character, brotherhood, and courage. They developed their plans quickly, and on April 15, 1907, incorporated Triangle in the State of Illinois.
