|Why Join AGR?
AGR is two fraternities in one.
Alpha Gamma Rho is both a social and a profesional fraternity. AGR does what you expect a social fraternity to do, socialize with other students on campus and in the community. But AGR is also a profesional fraternity that is focused on helping young men prepare to be the leaders of the global agricultural industry.
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 encourage:
We know the reason you're in college.
AGR never loses sight of why you came to college in the first place...to graduate and get a job. The fact that all members of the house have similar career interests makes finding peer study groups easy. Our chapter also has a library, computers and printers that can be used by all members to increase their ability to study and do the work necessary to be successful.
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 engineering ag or food related career, including food science, biotechnology, agri-marketing, environmental scienc 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 experience. We also encourage leadership on campus as the house routinely has officers in numerous clubs, College of Agriculture Student Council officers, Student Senators, Kansas FFA officers, members of judging teams, College of Agriculture Ambassadors and other leadership positions.
AGR plays hard too.
If all this sounds like a lot of work, don't worry, AGR knows how to have a lot of fun too. We participate in various intramural sports ranging from volleyball to flag football. We also have a full calendar of social events including responsible parties, tailgates, sorority functions and more. These social events strengthen the feeling of brotherhood and let you balance the professional and social aspects of the AGR fraternity experience.
House bills at AGR are $3,040 per semester and include food, washer and dryer use, printer use and other vital items. This is cheaper than a semester in the dorms where laundry and printer costs are not included. AGR also offers many scholarships to members via generous alumni donations.
