Triangle was founded in the spring of
1907 at the University of Illinois. There are currently 30 active
chapters located at outstanding engineering colleges and
universities all across the nation. Triangle is unique in the
National Interfraternity Conference, being the only member
fraternity that selects its membership exclusively from students
majoring in computer science, mathematics, engineering,
architecture, and the applied sciences. The Rose-Hulman chapter of
Triangle, colonized in 1966, received its charter on May 4, 1968.
It was the first new fraternity on the campus in 40 years. In 1969,
the chapter moved into its new 45 man house on fraternity row. The
men of Triangle believe that class work must be of good quality,
but that a good education is not necessarily the result of a mad
rush for grades. In the chapter home of the fraternity, members
seek the opportunity to supplement the teachings of the classroom.
In Triangle, each brother has the opportunity to learn lessons of
group living and personality and character development in an
atmosphere designed for fullest benefit to the individual. Triangle
thus provides a bridge between academic life and a career, as well
as a foundation for success in the years after college. Triangle
continues to work to develop balanced men in the fields of
engineering, architecture, and science by providing an environment
that fosters personal growth and professional success.
