The Iowa State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity held its homecoming meeting on October 27, 2012 at 1:00 pm in the Iowa State University Alumni Center in Ames, Iowa.

  1. Attendees introduced themselves with name, current residence and year of initiation

  2. A current status of the chapter was provided by Jason Carroll, Alumni Board President:

    Facilities
    After discussions at VEISHEA, and a unanimous recommendation from those in attendance, the properties were put up for sale and closed on 8/31/2012 for $406,250.  The new owner worked quickly to take down the house and it is our understanding plans have been submitted to the city for re-development.

    Chapter possessions have been moved to a climate-controlled storage garage in Ames.  This includes all of the Ritual materials, composites, trophies, pictures, and a few pledge projects. 

    The Beta Sig House was sold to the owner of the property next door without our knowledge before we could finalize the financing.  We have reached out to the all the other Chapters and continue dialogue with our real estate agent.  It is expected that another property will be available within 12-18 months, but it is very uncertain.  Sigma Nu is also re-colonizing and will be ahead of us in terms of those efforts, but we feel like we are positioned well to purchase a new property.

Alumni Homecoming Weekend E-mail

Brothers,

I hope you had a good, long Labor Day weekend! Fall is in the air – which means football season is here and Homecoming isn’t too far away. I want to invite all of you to join us in Ames on October 26 & 27 for the Triangle Alumni Homecoming Weekend.

There will be a dinner on Friday, and our annual meeting, a tailgate and the Baylor game on Saturday. As we plan for the next phase of the life of our chapter, it will be important to share your thoughts with the alumni board and national staff who will be recruiting the Iowa State Triangles who kick off the next 50 years of our chapter. Triangle National Executive Director Brian Tenclinger will be on the phone for the meeting. His staff will be coordinating our re-colonization efforts in the Fall of 2013.

Of course you are probably wondering what the status is of the chapter properties. At the spring meeting held over VEISHEA weekend, the alumni who gathered were unanimously in favor of selling our properties on North Hyland Avenue and pursuing new opportunities closer to the other Greek chapter houses on the south side of campus. There had been a property for sale on Lynn Avenue owned by Beta Sigma Psi, but I’m sorry to report that the real estate gods were not in our favor, and that is no longer an option.

I am pleased to say, though, that we found a buyer for the North Hyland properties at a good price, and we just closed on the sale prior to Labor Day weekend. All of these details and will be discussed, along with board and officer elections at the fall meeting, Saturday, October 27. Hope to see you there!

In F, S, and C,

Jason Carroll
Alumni Board President
