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 at the UW Seattle 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.
At the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. Go Huskies!
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 offers an alternative fraternity experience, with an emphasis on supporting each other and building our own community with traditions new and old.
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 and can pair brothers in the same classes to study. We also have experienced older brothers to help tutor students. We care about our brother’s academics and are always making sure that everyone gets the support they need to succeed.
No, but we collectively rent out a house close to UW that is encouraged for members to live at. Rent prices tend to be cheaper at the house than at apartments or via school housing, featuring a great location, larger room sizes, and more. This is also where many brotherhood events occur throughout the year! Also, there are no fees if you do not want to live in this house, unlike at some other groups on campus.
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 never intend to change that. With this in mind, we'd be excited to see you come to our events and get to know us! But remember, the choice to attend and stay is always yours. If you ever feel uncomfortable at one of our events, please don't be afraid to talk to one of our members about it!
Triangle is one out of a few fraternities that does not use greek letters. We use the delta T as our symbol.

Eta Class, Recruitment Vice President
Congratulations to Jacob for winning the Brother of the Quarter Award!
As soon as Jacob became a member in the Fall of 2022 as a part of our Eta Class, he has consistently maintained a high level of passion and impact on the well-being of our chapter, and has helped consult on both short and long-term strategies. As a recently elected RVP, Jacob has already executed a successful recruitment season and continues to play a large role in the chapter's expansion over the summer.
When not working hard, he's a great person to kick back and relax with, and always ready to crack a joke. We are excited to recognize Jacob for his success in embodying the character and values of a true leader within Triangle. Thank you!
