What is a professional-social fraternity?
A professional-social fraternity combines professionalism while allowing members to partake in activities based in a social atmosphere. By being a professional-social fraternity, Alpha Gamma Rho, or AGR, maintains an excellent networking system with alumni in the working world while assuring a relaxed and fun environment at home.
Do you have to study agriculture to be a member of AGR?
Because AGR is a professional-social fraternity for men pursuing an Agriculture or Natural Resources related career, it is often a misleading thought that everyone studies agriculture. True, many members study programs in agriculture such as Animal Science or Agribusiness, but the college, and thus AGR, includes other majors such as Building Construction Management, Packaging, and Fisheries & Wildlife. In fact, AGR stresses diversity in its membership so there are many members in related majors such as Biology, Environmental Sciences, Education, and Engineering.
Do AGR members live in a house?
While most members choose to live in our house for the duration of their college career, it is only required to live in house for 4 semesters. The AGR house's prime location makes for a short walk to campus, or many dining establishments on Grand Ave.
Within the AGR house you'll find very satisfying accommodations. Our house is one of the cleanest and most thoroughly maintained fraternity houses on campus. All members take part in the upkeep of the house with small weekly details and monthly work nights for bigger projects. Members also enjoy more living space than they would in a residence hall.
Our Chapter Room also serves as a place where most of the members like to hang out and enjoy each others' company. Many of them rooms are only made for two members, so you can get the amount of privacy you may desire.
Our full time cook prepares dinner on Sunday, lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday, and lunch on Fridays. The kitchen is always stocked and open for weekends and breakfast. College students are busy and prepared meals are convenient for that half hour break between class, study, and work.
The House also employs a Mentor, so there is always an authority figure inside the house, for guidance and some one to talk to if the members need some counseling.
