National Awards


Triangle’s National Awards recognize active chapters for their accomplishments, improvement, and achievements while individual students, alumni, and volunteers are honored for their leadership, dedication, and service to the fraternity. Fraternity awards are divided into two groups – Chapter Awards and Individual Awards. Triangle Education Foundation and Triangle Building & Housing Corporation awards all are chapter focused.
