Cost of Living
What are the requirements to join Triangle?
Unfortunately, you have to be a male (*sorry ladies*) pursuing a degree in some form of architecture, engineering, or science. If you are enrolled at IIT there is a 99% chance that you are eligible.
I meet the criteria and I'm thinking about joining. How can i tell if Triangle is right for me?
The single best way to find out if Triangle is right for you is to come hang out with us, even if it is not a "RUSH" event. Worried about being rude? Don't be. We will be more than happy to accomodate you.
I like Triangle. How can I join?
If you are interested in Triangle, stop by and meet the guys. If you show interest and make good connections, you may be offered an invitation or "bid" to join. Note: During rush week the actual "bid" day is Saturday. We cannot offer you an invitation any earlier. However before and after rush week bids may be given at any time.
How expensive is Triangle?
Surprisingly, it is significantly cheaper than living in the dorms. The actual figure depends on membership for that semester. The price for the upcoming semester Fall 2011 semester will be in the neighborhood of $3200. This includes all activity fees as well as room and board in the house.
For members that do not wish to live in the house, there are fraternal dues and activity fees that sum to a few hundred dollars. We also offer meal plans at the house as an alternative or supplement to the school's meal plans at much more reasonable rates. If you have any specific questions contact our Treasurer.
What are the advantages?
The advantages are countless. There are tangible, rock-solid benefits that we can put on paper and show you. However, there are also the intangible benefits that must be experienced. Those cannot be listed. I will list some of the more popular benefits of the chapter.
What does the chapter expect of me?
In a word "Participation". We expect you to take an active role. We expect you to learn our Code of Ethics and try your best to live by it. Everyone in the chapter is assigned to a different committee. You will be expected to work with the people of this committee to help plan whatever special dinners / retreats / socials they are in charge of.
What can I expect from the chapter?
What if I don't like it?
There are no strings attached. At the end of your pledge semester, YOU decide if you want to come back.
I have other questions, who should I ask?
