The Michigan State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity currently contains 61 Active members with a foreseeable 9 New Members being added after this semester's initiation. The Chapter has grown in all aspects of academic and social achievement and will continue down this path for semesters to come. We have attempted to further relationships with alumni by creating outings for them to meet the current members, and connect with the active chapter. The Chapter has also improved activity in philanthropy participation. As a Chapter, we have been attending a large number of philanthropy events put on by other Greek and non-Greek organizations. We have also managed to plan our own Greek philanthropy event; Greeks got talent, which will take place this month. The Chapter has been working very hard to improve its involvement in aspects of both internal and external activities, staying true to the ethics and beliefs that we all share as Triangle Brothers. In the semesters to come the Chapter will continue its growth in philanthropy, community outreach, alumni relations, and of course, academics. However, the development of the chapter will not end there. Active members have set goals to improve the fraternity in a variety of ways that will help brothers advance their professional careers and equip them with skills that are applicable outside of the fraternity. With our current momentum as a Chapter there is no reason that we will not accomplish the goals that we have set for ourselves this semester, or for any semesters to come. The Michigan State Chapter of Triangle has been flourishing with the men who are currently a part of this wonderful Fraternity.
Leadership Advantage is a week long summer program for incoming freshmen engineers put on by brothers of Triangle, sisters of Phi Sigma Rho, and students in the College of Engineering. We place the students in teams with the overall goal of building a working trebuchet by the end of the week. Along the way they participate and compete in multiple team-building activities to earn points for their trebuchet teams. On the last day we put their trebuchets through distance, accuracy, and a group wide tower battle to see which team built the best one. We also provide other fun activities such as a resume workshop, a campus scavenger hunt, Cyclotron tour, game night, and an outdoor activity night just to name a few. Over the past few years Leadership Advantage has grown exponentially. As a participant in the summer of 2013 I was one of 40 freshmen in the program, and this upcoming summer we plan on taking nearly 100 participants! I’ve had the opportunity to participate, collaborate, lead teams, lead activities, be Treasurer of the program, and now I’m currently the External President. I love the program and what it has to offer, which is why I took leadership positions in it; so I can impact the program and the participants. It’s a great way for incoming freshmen engineers to meet peers that will be in their classes while also gaining leadership skills, communication skills, and having some fun before classes start. I’m looking forward to leading Leadership Advantage with Abby Henning, the Internal President, so we can continue to grow and improve the program.
