Triangle is a Social Fraternity. Our members work closely other campus organizations and students to meet new people and build long lasting relationships. We have a strong alumni organization and the support of our families so we also host events to stay in touch and to give thanks.
Listed below is a collection of events we consider to be core to the Triangle experience at Toledo. They include many social, professional, and philanthropic activities that Triangles have participated in since the founding of our chapter.

Homecoming is an annual event that encompasses a whole week of fun-filled events aimed at showing our school spirit and invite alumni back to the campus. Homecoming Week is a unique time of year that unites current students, University alumni, faculty and staff, and the Toledo community to celebrate pride in The University of Toledo.
Every year Triangle participates in the Homecoming parade by constructing a float and hosts its annual Steak and Lobster Homecoming Dinner to show our school spirit and bring our alumni home to enjoy good company, good food, and good football. This year, Triangle has teamed up with Phi Sigma Rho, National Engineering Sorority, to construct a Homecoming 2009 float for the parade on October 10th, 2009.

Triangle participates in Toledo intramural sports leagues for Soccer, Dodgeball, and Volleyball every year. Nothing helps us relax better than playing a friendly competitive game against fellow students after a long day of classes and studying.
The purpose of National Engineers' Week, the third week of February, is to call attention to the contributions to society that Engineers make. The UT College of Engineering and student organizations like Triangle work to develop events that are fun and emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. Triangle hosts its annual Pop Bottle Rocket Competition and co-hosts the Egg Drop Contest with Phi Sigma Rho, National Engineering Sorority.
Toledo Alumni, Shaun Williams and Tom Hetrick, have created a tradition of Triangle participating in a Demolition Derby at the Ottawa County Fair. Shaun, Tom, and other volunteers spend weeks preparing old cars for the derby then Shaun demolishes the competition (and often our car in the process). Click here for photos from the last demolition derby.
Engineering can be frustrating. Once a year Triangle likes to buy an old junker and a sledge hammer and let students work out that built up stress. Click here for photos from our last car bash in the Centennial Mall
The Toledo Triangle Alumni Organization hosts an annual Superbowl Sphegetti Dinner at the Triangle house to draw actives, alumni, and their familes together to enjoy a good meal and watch the the game. Alumni Jeff Weikinger, Steve Hamilton, and Brian Bee meet weeks before this event to prepare the sauce to feed an army of Triangles and their families.
The Toledo Mud Hens are a minor league baseball team located in Toledo, Ohio. Triangle hosts an annual baseball outing for actives, alumni, and their families to enjoy a night out at the ball game..
Toledo Triangle's 10 PM - 2 AM philanthropy dinner is Triangle Toast. Every year we put together Triangle Toast to raise money for a philanthropic cause such as Children's Miracle Network or Toledo Beach House. This is a great opportunity for us to raise money for a great cause, work together to put on a successful event, and socialize with other students on campus.
Homecoming is the biggest tailgate of the year, but did you know the College of Engineering organizes tailgates for every homecoming game? Triangle is a strong supporter of Rocket Football and works to rally engineering students to do the same; so you'll always find Triangles at these tailgates!
Philanthropy is an important part of being Greek, so every Spring the UT Greek Community works together to give back to the Toledo and global community. This year, Triangle helped clean the streets of a nearby neighborhood, served meals at Cherry Street Mission, facilitated activities with the local Boys and Girls Club, and collected 30 soccer balls to send to children in Africa.
So it's nearing the end of the Spring semester; you met lots of new friends you'll miss over the summer, you're getting packed up and ready to head home, and you're about to get started on a solid week of studying for finals. Triangle has an annual tradition of hosting the Bermuda Triangle Party where friends can come and have fun before wrapping up the school year. The theme is tropical and volleyball is a must.
