The University of Houston had long been a potential expansion target due to the large contingent of alumni in the surrounding area.  Several expansion efforts had proved unsuccessful until 2005 when a group of mechanical engineers who were very involved in campus activities came together in search of something different from Houston’s typical commuter student experience.  In January 2007 Councilman John Gargani pitt82 hosted an initiation ceremony for 14 students of the Houston Triangle colony.  Just over a year after the first class was initiated the Houston group installed as chapter.
