Since 1904, Alpha Gamma Rho has been defining what true brotherhood means. Honesty, fairness, hard work, and helping each other are all markers of brotherhood our founders believed in, and we continue to recruit men with these qualities today.
As a social- professional fraternity, we are bound not just by our values but by our professions- agriculture, natural resources, and related fields. Our members come from a long line of the very best these industries have to offer. Our legacy is the story and impact of these men, and our success is in finding brothers who will carry this on.
When you join AGR, you join this legacy and you do so as an equal member. There are no pledges, only brothers- for we have real work to do here and real good to accomplish.
AGR encourages resourcefulness from its members as they work towards scholarship and professional success in their mental development. Our members’ drive toward high academic achievement involves engagement in experiential learning such as research projects, study abroad opportunities and campus organizations, cultivating strong mental development.
AGR encourages individual endeavor and provides a home away from home for its members, creating a network of brotherhood across the country. Our alumni are industry leaders and C-Suite executives, developing innovative products and creating solutions for an ever-changing world. AGR members join a social and professional network for internship and career opportunities upon initiation. Our social development centers on bettering the competencies of members to lead a growing world and be leaders in our industries.
AGR encourages aggressive effort towards moral development as chapters complete philanthropic and community service projects unique to their chapter’s story. Teaching elementary students about agriculture, running food drives to fight food insecurity, developing suicide awareness and funding Alzheimer’s research are all examples of how our chapters are aiding their campus and community. These experiences nurture moral development and prepare brothers to give back for years to come.
“I looked into Greek life quite a bit and had a chance to really get a grasp of every chapter on campus. I just knew I had to come home to AGR because those were the guys that I had the most in common with. Those were the guys that respected me and treated me the best.”
-Nate Heimann, student Kappa Chapter (University of Nebraska- Lincoln)
“I can see every year I'm just growing more and more, and I definitely attribute that to AGR.”
-Dakota Drummond, student Alpha Pi Chapter (University of Arizona)
