ISU Homecoming 2019 E-mail

We’d like to invite you and all Triangle Alumni back to Ames for Homecoming weekend October 25-27, 2019. Festivities include a BBQ Friday night, the ISU Cyclones vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys football game, an Alumni meeting Saturday morning and an Alumni Reception Saturday night. Spouses and significant others are invited but feel free to come on your own! A little more time to tell stories, maybe. Whatever works for you!


All Alumni are invited and welcome back but we’d ask that those ISU Triangles who graduated with a 5 or a 9 at the end of your graduation year, please make a special effort to return and encourage your classmates to return as well. So, if you graduated in 2014, you graduated five years ago, 2009 ten years ago... let’s go all the way back to 1969! We’d like to start a tradition of inviting all Alumni but let’s get your brothers back if you graduated 5, 10, 15, 20, 25…years ago. You old(er) guys make a special effort because we aren’t going to live forever! In fact, if you are coming back to Ames, bring one of your fraternity brothers with you.

We’ll hold an Alumni meeting at 8:00 AM Saturday morning. We want you to meet Quinn Moran, who joined ISU Triangle as our Leadership Consultant and House Director. Under Quinn and Active President Alex Faucz we have made significant progress with our Recruitment Program. Quinn and the Membership Team will continue focus on recruitment on a full-time basis. Last spring, we had twenty (20) actives and pledges living in the house. We have increased our in-house actives and pledges from twenty(20) last year to twenty-five(25) this semester, 30 next Spring Semester and continuing the growth to reach forty-five(45) men in house a year from now.
