In order to have a better world, we must first have a world of better men.

The idea to start a Utah Chapter was first suggested to Utah alumni brother Jeff Thomas utah14 from Colorado State Chapter brother Tyler Green csu11. Jeff began to work with National Headquarters to begin the colonization process along with Shane Shoemaker utah14 and Rex Knickerbocker utah14. Initial colony members shared an interest in the outdoors, which lead to many of the recruitment events taking place in the mountains and parks around campus. In October of 2013, the Utah Colony of Triangle petitioned to become a member of the Inter-fraternal Council at the University of Utah and was accepted. The Utah colony continued to grow both in numbers and structure. In the winter of 2015 the formally submitted their petition to charter Triangle Fraternity’s National Council.
Most colleges have fraternity and sorority houses on campus. Collectively, these groups are called the “Greek system,” because each house is named after two or three letters of the Greek alphabet. There are social Greek organizations, as well as those dedicated to a particular profession, such as medicine, law, engineering, or journalism.
A lot of what you’ve heard about fraternities and sororities is true. There are plenty of “Animal House” antics going on. But frats and sororities aren’t just about all-night keggers and random hook-ups. Greek organizations do a lot of community service: they raise money for charities, volunteer in soup kitchens and for other community organizations, and organize food drives on campus. These events are great résumé builders, and employers see participation in Greek organizations as a plus. Among other things, it means that you have some measure of discipline and that you managed to maintain decent grades in college despite your extracurricular commitments.
