AGR is two fraternities in one.
Alpha Gamma Rho isn't like other fraternities. In AGR you'll get the opportunity to experience both a social and a 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 you can live in during your college years. But AGR is more than just one of those strictly social fraternities; it is also a professional fraternity. All members of AGR have related career interests. AGR is focused for young men pursuing any career related to the agriculture, food or fiber industries, but is wide open to accompany any major. One more difference: at AGR there's no pledging. You join as an equal member. AGR does a careful review of all potential members in advance, so there's no need for a "weeding out" process.
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:
* Regional career seminars for undergraduates.
* Internships through alumni contacts.
* Job networking.
* Alumni associations with informative agricultural programming.
It's a tough world out there, but thousands of AGR members worldwide are there to help you succeed. From Secretaries of Agriculture, to top management, to presidents of food companies, to thousands of farmers and ranchers, AGR Alumni are a "who's who" in worldwide agriculture.
We know the real reason you're in college.
AGR never loses sight of why you're in college in the first place...to graduate and get a job. And to graduate, you need to do well academically. This is where belonging to a fraternity that is both social and professional helps most. Because everyone in AGR is in the same career field, it's easy to have peer study groups or find someone who has taken the same classes.
