Dear Brothers, Friends and Parents,

On March 24th at the Gateway Hotel and Conference Center, the Iowa State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity was awarded its charter. Over 100 people joined in the celebration including Iowa State University President Dr. Wintersteen and Dean of Engineering Dr. Rajala. Attendees also included alumni from every decade since 1964, undergraduates, Triangle National officers and past national presidents, including Tom Pennington its Executive Director, Triangle Education Foundation, Triangle Building and Housing Corporation as well as other university officials and ISU fraternities and sororities. Pictures from the weekend are below.

This is indeed a major milestone and the culmination of years of effort by the undergraduates, alumni board, and Triangle National. We should be proud that Triangle is officially back at Iowa State. I am extremely appreciative of the alumni board and the undergraduates for all their hard work and dedication.

During my Alumni President address, I made two major donation announcements. To aid recruiting and help ensure stability, scholarship funding has been established to provide $2,000 to every incoming Triangle new member. This program will begin this Fall and continue annually and work is underway to extend this scholarship to each active member living in the house. One would expect that announcement to be the keynote announcement, but the second was even better. Through a loan and special investment access, at least $2M will be available to Triangle for the purchase of a new chapter house. While this funding doesn’t completely cover the anticipated costs, it is a major step toward a permanent home for the chapter.

We've certainly come a long way from renting office space on Stanton Avenue!

The future is incredibly bright for Triangle at Iowa State. Please join me in congratulating everyone on this momentous occasion.

In F, S, and C,

John P. Pritchard, is82
Alumni Board President
