Triangle’s goal is to guide our members to be exceptional men, valuing hard work, determination, dedication and above all, brotherhood. Our members are taught 10 ethics, that encompass what Triangle is built to achieve.


1. Observe the precepts of the Fraternity as set forth in the Ritual;

Our Ritual is a call to action – a commitment to strive each day to live by our founding principles and work perpetually for the betterment of Triangle and the world.

2. Accept cheerfully my full share of any task, however menial, involved in maintaining a chapter home;

Our chapter currently owns a house 1 block away from Brody Campus and each brother is expected to treat the house as his own. This imbues responsibility and skills that our members can use in the real world.

3. Preserve and promote the chosen ideals of my Fraternity;

“In order to have a better world, we must first have a world of better men” (Herb Scobie) is a quote that Triangle embodies. Always acting with the conviction and dedication to Triangle and its ideals makes our members better thinkers, scholars, and people.

4. Pay all personal bills promptly, and always live within my means;

Learning how to carry financial responsibilities is a challenge for many. In Triangle, we guide our members through those responsibilities. Members can also hold positions that manage budgets.

5. Help create in my chapter home an environment in which enduring friendships may be formed;

A huge part of Greek Life is the formation of lifelong friendships. Triangle teaches members how to create a welcoming and open community. With this in mind, Triangle has a strict Anti-hazing policy. No member, new member, or pledge should ever be hazed. Hazing does not create an environment for enduring friendships. Our members foster friendships through the activities, goals, successes, and challenges that they face together.

6. Maintain a creditable scholastic record;

On the forefront of our organization is our education, with MSU chapter winning chapter of the year for the 2021-2022 academic year and 3rd highest cumulative GPA of the entire Triangle Organization. Our STEM background allows members of same majors to nurture one another’s education and we host weekly study sessions to help each other with coursework. We strive to achieve excellence during every class or activity we participate in.

7. Promote the welfare of my profession;

As one of the only fraternities that limits membership to STEM majors, our profession means a lot to us. Within that exclusivity, many of our members end up taking very similar career paths and sometimes at the same companies. This leads to a stronger network where our Alumni Members can help mentor, teach, and provide opportunities to our undergrads.

8. Maintain my self-respect by proper conduct at all times;

Our brothers are expected to be leaders and respectful to the community around them.

9. Uphold faithfully the traditions and program of my Alma Mater;

Upholding the traditions of MSU as well as representing the university at all times is crucial to our organization.

10. Pay the price of success in honest effort.

This ethic speaks for itself. There are no shortcuts in life and our members are expected to do their best to achieve their goals.
