What is ΑΓΡ?

  • What is Alpha Gamma Rho?

    ΑΓΡ is two fraternities in one.
    Alpha Gamma Rho isn't like other fraternities. In ΑΓΡ you'll get the opportunity to experience both a social and a professional fraternity. ΑΓΡ does what you expect a social fraternity to do: socialize with other students on campus and people in the community. ΑΓΡ is also like other social fraternities in that it has a strong group of members and a house you can live in during your college years. But ΑΓΡ is more than just one of those strictly social fraternities; it is also a professional fraternity. All members of ΑΓΡ have related career interests. ΑΓΡ is for young men pursuing any career related to the agriculture, food or fiber industries. One more difference: at ΑΓΡ there's no pledging. You join as an equal member. ΑΓΡ does a careful review of all potential members in advance, so there's no need for a "weeding out" process.
    We get you ready for the real world.
    Because ΑΓΡ is a professional fraternity, we are concerned with promoting your career development during your college years and after graduation. We offer: 

    • Regional career seminars for undergraduates.
    • Internships through alumni contacts.
    • Job networking.
    • Alumni associations with informative ag programming.

    It's a tough world out there, but thousands of ΑΓΡ members worldwide are there to help you succeed. From Secretaries of Agriculture, to top management, to presidents of food companies, to thousands of farmers and ranchers, ΑΓΡ Alumni are a "who's who" in worldwide agriculture.
    We know the real reason you're in college.
    ΑΓΡ never loses sight of why you're in college in the first place...to graduate and get a job. And to graduate, you need to do well academically. This is where belonging to a fraternity that is both social and professional helps most. Because everyone in ΑΓΡ is in the same career field, it's easy to have peer study groups or find someone who has taken the same classes. And with state of the art computers and libraries in most ΑΓΡ houses, you'll find the good studying atmosphere you need to do your best.
    ΑΓΡ isn't just for "farm boys."
    You don't have to study production agriculture to join ΑΓΡ. ΑΓΡ is for any young man preparing for any ag or food related career, including food science, biotechnology, agri-marketing, environmental science and many others. ΑΓΡ has strong ties with 4-H and FFA, but even if you have never been a member of these groups, you can be a member of ΑΓΡ.
    ΑΓΡ men are leaders.
    Leadership is an important skill you'll learn or develop in Alpha Gamma Rho. Our members recognize the need to develop leadership skills and take an active part in fraternity and university activities. Fraternity officer positions give you real leadership experience; you will use these skills to get involved in campus clubs, organizations or student government.
    Lean on us.
    ΑΓΡ members realize they are students of their university and non-university communities. ΑΓΡ tries to be a good neighbor by doing community service work and completing philanthropic projects which help the community.
    ΑΓΡ plays hard too.
    If all of this sounds like a lot of serious work, don't worry. ΑΓΡ knows how to have a lot of fun, too. Intramurals are a great way to show our ΑΓΡ competitiveness in a variety of both team and individual sports. From softball and water volleyball, to flag football and dart tournaments, intramurals are lots of fun, and they provide a chance for ΑΓΡs to have a great time together. Plus, ΑΓΡ usually has a full calendar of social events each term, including responsible parties, tailgates and sorority functions. These social events let you balance the professional and social aspects of the ΑΓΡ fraternity experience.
