The purpose of Triangle shall be to maintain a fraternity of engineers, architects and scientists. It shall carry out its purpose by establishing chapters that develop balanced men who cultivate high moral character, foster lifelong friendships, and live their lives with integrity.
Formed in 2017, our group is the only STEM exclusive social fraternity on UW campus. Our aim as a chapter is to promote academic growth and increase social interactions between the different STEM fields, thereby encouraging interdepartmental relations between both the well known and lesser known STEM fields.
A fraternity is a group of men who share a bond of brotherhood. First and foremost, a fraternity is a tight knit community, which can be hard to find as you first come to college. Joining a fraternity means having access to a fun, social environment for your whole college career.
Triangle is the only social fraternity exclusive to STEM and architecture majors and one of the two non-Greek fraternities on campus. Triangle doesn’t offer the classic fraternity experience, we’re more about supporting each other and building our own community than following traditions.
Given that STEM and Architecture are both very challenging programs at UW, academics are our top priority. We ensure and expect brothers to succeed academically. We keep track of what classes our brothers are taking pair them with others in the same classes for studying. We also have experienced older brothers to help tutor students. We care about our brother’s academics and make sure everyone gets the support they need to succeed.
No. We do not currently have a chapter house so there is no requirement.
No, we do not haze. We believe hazing is morally wrong. Our goal is to better our brothers, not subject them to abuse. Triangle has no tradition of hazing and we don’t intend to change that. With given promises, come to our events and truly feel our vibes! But remember, the choice is always yours, if you ever feel uncomfortable at our events, come talk to one of our member about it!
Triangle is one of a few fraternities that do not use greek letters. We use the delta T as our symbol.
