Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity (AGR) Alpha Rho Chapter

Fraternity Logo

Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity (AGR) Alpha Rho Chapter is a professional/social organization in which all Brothers share a common interest in Agriculture. The AGR fraternity isn't like other fraternities. AGR combines the characteristics of both social and professional fraternities. Members socialize with other students on campus and people in the community. The strong group of members shares a house and life-long camaraderie. All members of AGR have similar career interests. AGR is for men pursuing any career related to the agriculture, food or fiber industries. At AGR there is no pledging; all join as equal members. AGR does a careful review of all potential members in advance, so there is no need to "weed out" prospects.
