Building Better Men
Founded in 1907 at the University of Illinois, Triangle is a social, professional STEM organization of Engineers, Architects and Scientists. We are the only national social fraternity that requires specific fields of study and Triangle is one of only three national fraternities that does not have a Greek letter name.
The Iowa State Chapter was founded in 1964 and has a strong tradition of recruiting academically focused men. In addition, we strive to find men that live their life with integrity - those who make the choices to be leaders, scholars, professionals and gentlemen in all aspects of our lives.

I love Triangle because it surrounds me with a community of equally driven STEM students.
Joining the fraternity was a very spontaneous decision, but the friendly (and fun) atmosphere combined with above-average academic expectations 'wooed' me right away. It’s encouraging to have fellow members who have gone through the same classes you have and are often able to help you!
Also, there’s a little bit of structure provided with regular mealtimes, chapter meetings, and events. This helped me a lot in navigating the stress and chaos of my first year.
at Iowa State University
Triangle is a home away from home. 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 recently moved into one of the newest houses on campus at 2136 Lincoln Way. We take pride in taking great care of the property and ensuring that its an inviting place for all. Come see it for yourself! We will gladly set up a tour for you.
