What does membership in Triangle offer?
Triangle, like all fraternities, offers leadership development, training in financial responsibility, support, and friendship. However, Triangle offers the benefit of a similar academic experience for its members. Triangle provides a tightly-knit group of peers to help you throughout your educational career. In addition, in Triangle Fraternity you will find:
- A home while you are in college shared with others whose ideals and interests are similar to yours
- Friendships to last a lifetime
- Leadership opportunities through participation in chapter operations and leadership seminars
- Opportunities to get connected on campus
- A network of alumni members, who may be of great value in your personal and professional life
How much will it cost?
Many potential members ask if it costs more to live at the Triangle house than in a dorm or an apartment. The answer is that it costs about the same to live at Triangle as elsewhere. Purdue students have many housing choices and Triangle must keep its total costs in line with the competition in order to attract new members.
How do I become a member of Triangle?
At our events you can informally meet the active members so that you can get to know us and we can get to know you. Most events involve food and entertainment, so they are also a great time.
In addition to our recruitment events, we also welcome you to stop by the Triangle house during the day to explore what everyday casual life is like. Triangle observes an open door policy, welcoming anyone to stop in and hang out. We’re located across the street from campus at 103 North University Street (map).
