Alpha Gamma Rho is a social/professional fraternity that is located on beautiful lakefront property at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our fraternity strives to make better men throughout the agricultural community and beyond. In addition to participating in the numerous Greek activities on campus, members of Alpha Gamma Rho are also involved in numerous activities throughout the campus as a whole. We are actively involved in Intramural Sports, Student Council, ASM, and numerous smaller interest clubs throughout the campus.
Alpha Gamma Rho believes in building strong ties between our members not only while in school, but also in everyday life. Our Vice Noble Ruler of Alumni Relations is constantly planning numerous active member/alumni type outings. We also have an officer specifically in charge of membership and brotherhood development. This is extremely beneficial to freshman in particular because AGR incorporates a chapter education process which allows freshman to interact with the other members on a daily basis.
Besides an education and membership development process, Alpha Gamma Rho also incorporates a scholarship program which benefits all members of the fraternity. Each year our educational foundation gives numerous scholarships to our members for various criteria (highest GPA, most improved GPA, etc.). Our organization also finds it important to give incoming freshman an opportunity to get scholarships. In the spring of every year, AGR organizes a program call Competitive Edge. Competitive Edge targets high school seniors attending the university in the fall and allows them to go through an interview process and compete for scholarships. Our spring alumni banquet also gives our members a chance to attain scholarships based on their level of activity in the organization.
Alpha Gamma Rho also finds time to participate in numerous philanthropy events. This past spring we organized our own philanthropy event. A “best ball” golf tournament was organized and setup at the Bridges golf Course in Madison. All proceeds from the event went to funding for the research of Alzheimer’s disease. This event was extremely successful and plans are already underway for next year’s golf outing.
Our organization was built on the beliefs to make better men through agriculture and in life. Our doors are always open and anyone can feel free to visit our house.
