What is Triangle Fraternity? At the University of Michigan, Triangle is a community of various students, centered around its chapter home and its core values. The members strive for the balanced lifestyle and forge lifelong friendships along the way. At the national level, Triangle Fraternity is an organization that seeks to develop men as leaders and create a widespread network of individuals dedicated to personal growth, brotherhood, and their professional interests.
Each member joins Triangle for a different reason, but every member is able to find an atmosphere which fosters friendship and academic, social, and professional growth.
The first semester of anyone’s college experience can be intimidating. When I first stepped onto the University of Michigan’s campus, I didn’t know what to expect. On top of everything, it was at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the entirety of the university was unsure of the future. After being sent home for the year, I felt disappointed that I had not made the connections I was hoping to make, so I decided to look deeper into student organizations the following semester. I knew that I wanted to join a fraternity and noticed that Triangle was hosting a rush event that night. Going to that event may be the single greatest decision I made that entire year. Every brother that I spoke with was nice and welcoming. I was able to form a genuine connection with everyone I spoke with that night. After leaving, I knew to myself that Triangle was the fraternity that I wished to join.
Ever since joining, Triangle has helped me grow as a person and I have found my place at Michigan here. The people I have met I know will be my lifelong friends, and the memories that I have made I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Triangle has helped me become a more social and driven person, and has helped me succeed as a student at Michigan. Being a fraternity of STEM majors, I have found numerous people that can help me with my classes and opportunities that I can take advantage of. As President, I plan on continuing to foster these relationships within our brotherhood and help our brothers grow into better men. If you are at all interested in seeing what Triangle is about, I encourage you to come to one of our rush events and meet our brothers. We all look forward to seeing you there.
