Iowa State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity
Alumni News April 2020 E-mail

Hi All,

As I begin this newsletter, I ask myself the question, "Where do I start?" First, I hope everyone is home, healthy and safe. In my lifetime, I have never experienced anything like this. There were only four classes ahead of me at Iowa State Triangle (is68) so I am going to speculate no one else has experienced what we are going through currently either. One of our Actives, our VP Finance, Mark Bartos’ father had been diagnosed positive with the COVID19 Virus but is now fully recovered. If any other Triangle Alumni has someone in your family directly affected by this virus, please let me know.

Iowa State Triangle Will Remain Open with “Limited Operations”

Iowa State University announced during spring break in March that ISU was ending on-campus classes and the balance of the semester would be taught using “Virtual Learning”. You can get all the details on what Iowa State is doing on their website. Sororities are totally closed. Fraternities have a choice to close or remain open if members meet the following criteria:

  • Your permanent residence is outside of the United States and you are unable to travel to your home country.
  • Your academic department has deemed your internship, clinical or practicum will continue and requires your on-site presence. And, you have accepted this arrangement.
  • You have personal circumstances preventing you from returning home, some examples include: 
    • You are an independent student.
    • You are part of the foster care system.
    • You or your family does not have a permanent address.
    • Your home community is quarantined.
    • Returning to home represents a health/safety threat to you or those at home.
    • Returning home will prevent you from accessing your courses remotely because of insufficient internet and technology capabilities.

Iowa State Triangle has four (4) men staying in the house for the rest of the semester that meet the above criteria.

The men are self-quarantined and/or sheltering in place, just as we are at our homes around the country. I believe it’s a good thing we have men in house. We suffered a frozen pipe six weeks ago and it’s helpful to have a few responsible Actives living in the house.

As an aside, we suffered a broken, frozen waterline on the second floor that flooded those rooms and the two rooms below. The water line was not properly insulated when the house was built and froze during the winter. The damage has been repaired, the men moved back in their rooms just before they had to return home when ISU went to online classes. We did have insurance but our deductible is $10,000 and our bill was just under $10,000.

Triangle Educational Foundation Day of Giving!

Congratulations to John Pritchard and all Iowa State Alumni who participated in the Triangle Day of Giving on February 20th for the very successful Triangle Educational Foundation Day of Giving!

A note from John:

Dear Brothers,

The results are in! The Triangle Day of Giving was a huge success. In one day, we raised $30,000, 150% of the goal! Iowa State’s Triangle Alumni’s participation was outstanding. We had the highest number of donors of any chapter. I’d like to personally thank each of you for responding to this important effort. I know there are many demands on your time and treasure and I’m truly thankful for your generosity and support.

Having been directly involved with the fraternity for a number of years, I can assure you these monies are critically needed and will directly support our younger Triangle brothers through scholarships, training, and chapter assistance.

Thank you again for your generosity and responsiveness to the request for support. Go Clones!

Iowa State Triangle Capital Campaign-Securing our Future

The Securing Our Future – Triangle’s Home Campaign for our chapter has been making great progress since many of us gathered last October in Ames. To date, we have commitments of $1,775,000! Thank you to all who have made a commitment to our chapter’s future. We understand that in the current environment there are a lot of demands on all of us and we wish to focus all our Triangle resources on support of the actives, so we will be pausing active solicitation of new gifts to the campaign through at least the end of April. The Campaign Planning Committee under the leadership of Chris Moe is92, Triangle Education Foundation Vice President Aaron Girson and the rest of the Triangle Education Foundation staff will continue work on the campaign. They are happy to answer any questions (contact Chris at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or Aaron at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). We will be prepared to make the final push towards our $2,000,000 goal at the appropriate time and I am confident that others will join in helping ensure the future of Triangle at Iowa State.

We Awarded $10,000 in Scholarships Thanks to a Very Generous Alumnus

We just selected eight Iowa State Triangle Scholarship winners from a group of seventy (70) high school senior applicants. We offer scholarships to incoming Iowa State freshmen that are currently high school seniors. They must have an outstanding GPA, planning to major in a STEM curriculum and must have demonstrated leadership skills in high school. Our scholarships serve as the basis of our membership recruitment efforts. Most applicants fit the profile we’ve established for Prospective New Members.

The scholarships were awarded to two groups. We offered Scholar Leader Scholarships to high school senior STEM majors incoming to ISU in Fall 2020. The second group was to high school senior STEM Majors incoming to ISU, but that had to be a member of a FIRST Robotics Team at their high school. If you aren’t familiar with FIRST Robotics, look them up. Our kind of young men! There are 251 FIRST Robotics teams in Iowa High Schools.

There were two $1,500 scholarships and two $1,000 scholarships awarded to members from each group for a total of $10,000. We had triple the applicants that we had last year and most, if not all of them, are prospective candidates to consider Triangle at Iowa State as their new home. The Scholarship Program enables us to identify incoming freshmen that are great young people that are also candidates to be Triangle Brothers.

Applicants are screened and then we interview the final 10 candidates for each set of four scholarships. It was a great experience for me and it gives one confidence in the incoming generation! Quinn Moran and our Recruitment team led by Recruitment VP Seth Pierre are reaching out to all seventy applicants. Interest in becoming a Triangle is not a prerequisite for the scholarship awards but we are candid with applicants during the process if we believe they could be an excellent candidate to join Triangle.

Recruitment for Spring, Summer and Fall

Our Spring and Summer Recruitment Plan is focused on the scholarship applicants. Quinn Moran, our Leadership Specialist, is working closely with Seth Pierre and the Recruitment team who are working hard on our normal spring recruitment of current ISU students. There is a certain level of uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 situation. It’s not possible to invite incoming high schoolers attending ISU in the fall to visit the house during the spring semester and the high schoolers aren’t visiting ISU. We will experience challenges with our spring class, but we plan to have a successful summer with an assumption there will be some semblance of normalcy in the fall. The message I’d like to convey to our Alumni is that we have a recruitment plan and our team is working hard to execute on our plan.

Financial Matters

The COVID-19 situation has created havoc for many if not all of us. Some of our Actives have been adversely affected by losing part time jobs, summer internships, parents suffering job loss, etc. For some of our members, the ability to get a full-time job or internship for the summer is uncertain. We are working with President Ben and the Active Executive Board to make sure we are sensitive to any of our Actives who are adversely affected. If any of our generous Alumni have an opportunity for a summer job or internship at your company for a Triangle active studying in any of the STEM majors, please reach out to me. See my note below for more details.

The Iowa State Alumni Board will provide a 30% credit ($1,315) or refund on members Spring Semester House bill ($4,450). Iowa State shut down on-campus classes and ordered students to return home. The credit will be applied against their Spring, Summer or Fall Semester House Bills. Actives and Pledges moved out of the house at spring break. Our members were directed by Iowa State University to move out and live at home for the second half of the semester as were all Iowa State students. We are able to recoup 9% of that Credit from budgeted but unspent money and a credit from the chef service for the balance of the semester.

The Alumni Board agreed to waive the April and May “Active Rent Payments” to the Alumni Board. We reached this decision after scrubbing the budget for unused dollars. The truth is most of our expenses are fixed expenses. After reviewing the guidelines on the recent Federal rescue offerings, we do believe we are able to qualify for the EIDL Program and we are applying for same this week.

We are hopeful we will be open for business for the Summer and Fall Semesters but we have a contingency plan in the event the University does not open for classes on campus in the Summer or Fall. We plan for the worst and hope for the best. We realize “Hope is not a Strategy”. In fact, a friend of mine authored the book of the same name. We don’t have control over our pandemic situation, only our reaction to events. We are hopeful we will approach normal sometime soon but, in the event it takes longer, we will be prepared for whatever the contingency. You should know the Active Chapter continues to have their Monday evening chapter meeting using Discord, an online meeting application. They are staying together and talking every week if not more often.

Academic Progress

I’m often asked how the chapter is doing with our grades. We are doing ok and making progress. The truth is we are not doing as well as we would collectively like, but we are improving and we are working toward performing at the level where we belong - at the top.

We were 12th among fraternities in Fall 2019 with a 3.15 average, up from 3.08 the semester prior. The Actives GPA was 3.33 and our new members GPA was 2.82 so the new members dragged our average down significantly. The Actives were 4th if considered alone. Most of our new members performed well, but we had a handful of new members that adversely affected our GPA. We are aware of the issues and working with them. Triangle was the “most improved fraternity over the last 12 months”.

Everyone knows it takes a lot to perform at the highest level academically. Our Past President Alex Faucz is now our scholarship chair and is laser focused on improvement of the house GPA. With the switch to online classwork, it’s unsettling, but we will continue to improve ourselves. The University has offered students a Pass/Fail option vs. a Grade Point for this semester. We have no idea if or how that might affect our overall GPA positively or negatively. There is uncertainty this semester.

Our recruitment efforts are deliberate and focused. We recruit new members with a candid conversation about everyone’s expected Academic Excellence. Our reputation is nicely improved which makes it a little easier to recruit top candidates. We are on a journey and will continue to make Academic Excellence one of our highest priorities.

Please Help These Actives with Introductions to Summer Intern Programs and Posibilities

The closing of Iowa State on campus classes, the service industry and other industry layoffs and the general chaos in our country right now have created havoc with some of our actives summer jobs and internships. We have some actives that could really use a summer job or internship. If you have any connection where you can make a referral or introduction, please do! Please let Quinn Moran know and she will put our active(s) in touch. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Homecoming and Triangle Reunion October 16th and 17th, 2020

My big ask of our Alumni, other than helping with our Capital Campaign and helping an active get a summer job, is:


I know many of you are making plans to return the weekend of October 16th 2020 to watch the Iowa State Cyclones beat up on Oklahoma! We’ll have a BBQ for the Alumni on Friday night October 16th. On Saturday, we’ll have an Alumni meeting from 9am-10:30am, a tailgate at 11am, the game at 1pm or 2pm and an Alumni cocktail party after the game in the early evening. If you haven’t planned your trip yet, please do so and get some of your classmates to meet you in Ames for the weekend. You will be glad you did. It’s going to be FUN!

I don’t care if you live in California, Texas, Missouri, Minnesota or Iowa. COME BACK AND BRING YOUR TRIANGLE FRIENDS!

Feel free to send your questions and comments.

Yours in F, S and C

President's Message E-mail
Hi all! 

I’m writing this note as your newly elected Iowa State Triangle Alumni Board President for 2019-2020. Frankly, this note is a little longer than I would like, but I want everyone to know the great things going on at Iowa State Triangle as well as our key priorities for the coming year. Bear with me please. 

I want to personally thank John Pritchard for his too numerous to mention contributions to the ISU Triangle Alumni Board and Active Chapter. John stepped down from the Alumni Board President job at the end of October and left me some huge boots to fill. 

John led our effort to acquire the Sigma Chi house at Iowa State, negotiate the deal and worked with one of our very generous, Founding Charter Alumni who made a $1,000,000 contribution for the down payment on our house. John worked with Jason Carroll, our Alumni Treasurer to get our financials in order and get the deal closed, all in about 45 days. There were numerous significant hurdles, barriers and setbacks. With John’s leadership and the support of the ISU Alumni Board, our partners at Triangle Education Foundation and Triangle Building and Housing Corporation, it all got done. Iowa State Triangle has the newest, nicest, most modern and best located fraternity house at Iowa State University. Thank you, John! It would not have happened lest you did it! We are forever grateful! And a very big thank you to one certain Alumni, Dexter Duhan for your most generous contributions. In addition to the house down payment, Dexter contributed another $1M as the lead gift for the Capital Campaign. There are other special Alumni who have made significant contributions, but I want to recognize Dexter because his generosity is in a league all of its own!

Although no longer an official Board member, John has agreed to stay involved with this Board with a focus on our continuing financial actions including our Capital Campaign effort and obtaining mortgage financing for the house. After our successful $2 Million Capital Campaign is complete, we expect to have a $1,500,000 mortgage balance on our $4,600,000 house.  

Thank you, John, from the bottom of my heart!

I present the 2019-2020 Iowa State Triangle Board Members as follows:

Thank you to Brant Bristow for serving as Vice President of the Board the last number of years. 

Congratulations and thank you to all the Board members for your commitment to serve. There is a lot to be done. 

I accept the responsibility as Alumni President, with a combination of enthusiasm and commitment to our Alumni and our Active Chapter. From my view, it’s a very critical time for Iowa State Triangle. We have a new house, the largest we’ve owned, but a house that comes with a lot of responsibility. It comes with both a financial and a growth responsibility. We plan to reach 45 men living in house to reach our budget target. The good news is we are on the path to achieving that.  

I want to outline our key Alumni Board priorities for the upcoming year:
  • Active Chapter Support
    • We will work closely with the Active Chapter Leadership to support their efforts on Recruitment, Mentoring, Member Retention, Brotherhood, Academic Excellence and improving Chapter Operations
    • We will focus our efforts supporting and insuring the Active Chapter continues to be successful in their recruitment efforts so that we achieve our “Steady State Target” and financial strength no later than September Fall Semester 2021
      • Quinn Moran continues with us on a part time basis and is focused on working closely with the Recruitment team to meet and exceed our expectations and goals
      • The Scholarship Programs we offer Incoming ISU Freshmen and FIRST Robotics Team Members Incoming to ISU as Freshmen will help tremendously, as it has this year.
    • We have a Recruitment Strategy and Business Plan and the Scholarship Program is one component, not the only component
  • Improve Alumni Relations and Increase Alumni Engagement with each other and the Active Chapter
  • Strengthen our Financial Position
    • We will support John Pritchard’s efforts to obtain a mortgage for the Chapter House for $1,500,000.
    • We will work with Aaron Girson to reach our Capital Campaign Goal of $2,000,000.
    • Jason Carroll, our Alumni Treasurer has implemented QuickBooks for the Active Chapter and works with the Active Treasurer and President on a regular basis to get our Active Chapter Financial house in a further position of strength
  • House Improvements and Operational Excellence
    • We’ll make necessary repairs and improvements to the house so we can accommodate our chapter growth and reach operational excellence by running a “tight ship”. Jim Meier-Gast and Tim Sullivan lead our efforts in working closely with the House Manager to make the above-mentioned repairs and improvements.

Those are our goals and priorities. We are spreading the workload and asking the entire Board along with a number of Alumni to help. Let me know if you want to volunteer!

Let me delve into a few membership numbers. 

We are initiating 14 Pledges this Saturday. Quinn Moran, our Leadership Consultant and our Recruitment Team were instrumental in making this happen. 

We graduate four men this spring and if we don’t pledge any additional men between now and Fall 2020, we will have 31 men living in house Fall 2020. Pretty darn good considering our starting point 15 months ago. 

Our plan for the house at “Steady State” is forty-five 45 men, paying room and board living in house. Even though the time line for reaching our Steady State target is Fall 2021, we have a real shot to reach that number by Fall 2020. We need to add 14 net new members that will live in the house and pay board between now and Fall 2020. Adding 14 is difficult but possible. 

We plan to reach our target and fill the house with great young men and that will enable financial stability and security for the long-term. After getting to know most of our Actives and Pledges, I am confident that with support from our Alumni, Triangle Fraternity at Iowa State has a great future. 

I challenge each Alumni to find an incoming ISU freshman STEM major in your area with great grades and introduce them to our Iowa State Triangle Recruitment team led by Seth Pierre and Quinn Moran. Any assistance our Alumni can provide in terms of referrals of talented young men from your hometown coming to ISU next fall will be much appreciated.

We launched the official “Public Phase” of our Capital Campaign at the Alumni meeting on October 26th and you received that Press Release a few weeks ago. Aaron Girson, Vice President of the Triangle Education Foundation leads our efforts for our Capital Campaign. Aaron’s charter is to work with ISU Triangle Alumni to raise $2,000,000 so we can pay down our debt to $1,500,000. We intend to get a mortgage for the $1.5M and we need all Alumni to help get us to the $2M. As of this moment, we either have the money in the bank or commitments from Alumni for a total of 1,650,000 which leaves us with a remaining amount of $350,000. We are 80% of the way there thanks to some very generous Alumni. 

The Actives are working hard to build a great chapter at Iowa State. Now I need to ask you, our great Alumni, for your help. I realize our Alumni are at different stages in our lives. Some can afford to give more than others. I ask each of you to give as much as you can to our Capital Campaign. The Alumni who have given already, were generous because they believe Triangle Fraternity changed their lives for the better, that the experience of Triangle at Iowa State, the friends they made, the life they’ve lived, made them better men, that they were able to achieve the success in their life they have because of Triangle and the experience with their brothers while at Iowa State prepared us for life. 

BTW, if you can find a way to contribute $25,000, even if it’s over a few years, we have an Alumni who will match your contribution. Stretch if you can. Contact Aaron Girson at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 269-589-5744 if you can help! 

We will make Homecoming at Iowa State a very special annual event in an effort to get our Alumni back to Ames to meet up with your old friends. For some of you, I mean really OLD friends. The experience those of us had this year and last year, meeting the brothers new and old, was tremendous. We went home invigorated. I ask each of you to come back next year for Homecoming weekend October 17th when the Cyclones play Oklahoma. Mark your calendars. Call your best Triangle buddies and get them to commit to come back and meet up. I promise you it will be a great weekend!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

Yours in F, S & C,

Iowa State Triangle Launches $2,000,000 Campaign

Ames, IA – The Triangle Chapter at Iowa State University launched its Securing Our Future – Triangle’s Home Campaign during Homecoming 2019.  The $2,000,000 Campaign will help ensure the future of the chapter and provide alumni and friends of Triangle the opportunity to invest in the long-term success of the chapter by providing funding for the chapter house at 2136 Lincoln Way.

Since Triangle’s founding on the Iowa State campus in 1964 more than 500 men have been initiated into the chapter. Triangle’s Iowa State brotherhood has had a long history of leadership on campus, in the classroom, and provided a home away from home for generations of Triangle brothers. Acquired in 2018, 2136 Lincoln Way is a new, modern facility in the heart of the Iowa State community that will provide all Triangle brothers a home when in Ames. The new home is the crown jewel of Greek houses at Iowa State and in all of Triangle. The facility boasts state-of-the-art safety and security, suite-style living, plentiful common and study space, in a location directly adjacent to campus.

“Our goal is to ensure that the costs of procuring and maintaining our home does not fall entirely on the newly reinstalled chapter and we are asking alumni to participate to help continue our recent successes. We have already secured $1,340,000 in gifts and our goal is to raise the remaining $660,000 by September 2020,” said Alumni President John Pritchard is82.

The chapter has engaged the Triangle Education Foundation to manage the Securing Our Future – Triangle’s Home Campaign. Alumni and Friends of Triangle will have several options for supporting the Campaign, including both tax-deductible and non-deductible options. Triangle Education Foundation Vice President Aaron Girson will manage the campaign. Girson’s experience includes running the 2012 Campaign for Triangle national endowment campaign that secured more than $7,000,000 in gifts.

With a successful fall new member class of 17 men, the chapter is already demonstrating what it can do with 2136 Lincoln Way as its home. The growing chapter strives to attain a level of excellence while maintaining a friendly and inviting home where lifelong friendships are made.
