Why AGR?


AGR is two Fraternities in one.

Alpha Gamma Rho isn’t like other Fraternities. In AGR you will get the opportunity to experience both a social and professional fraternity. AGR does what you expect a social fraternity to do: socialize with other students on campus and people in the community. AGR is also like other social fraternities in that it has a strong group of members and a house that you can live in during your college years.  All members have related career interests and all have agricultural backgrounds.

We get you ready for the real world.

Because AGR is a professional fraternity we are concerned with promoting your career development during your college years and after graduation. We offer:

1. Internships through alumni contacts

2. Job Networking

3. Alumni associations with informative agricultural programming.

We have an alumni backing that are there to help you succeed. From Secretaries of Agriculture, to top management, to thousands of farmers and ranchers.

AGR isn’t just for “farm boys”

You don’t have to study production agriculture to join AGR. AGR is for any young man preparing for any career, including food science, agri-marketing,  engineering and many others.


AGR 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 experiences; you will use these skills to get involved in campus clubs, organizations or student government.

AGR plays hard too.

If all of this sounds like a lot of serious work don’t worry. AGR knows how to have a lot of fun, too. Intramurals are a great way to show our AGR competitiveness in a variety of  both team and individual sports. From football and Basketball to softball, intramurals are lots of fun, and they provide a chance for AGR’s to have a great time together. Also, AGR usually has a full calendar of social events each term, including well managed social events, tailgates and sorority functions. These social events let you balance the professional and social aspects of the AGR fraternity experience.
