Who We Are.
Alpha Gamma Rho is the fraternity sharing a common bond within a dynamic, global agriculture committed to fostering the highest values and providing each and every brother with superior lifelong personal development and professional success.
Over A Century Of Success.
Alpha Gamma Rho was founded in 1904 at Ohio State University and has since expanded to almost 70 campuses nationwide. AGR has historically been strictly an agricultural fraternity, but we have since expanded our membership to those people pursuing careers in agriculture, food and fiber, natural resources, life sciences and related fields.
In 1916, AGR expanded to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. With its large agricultural campus and being the heart of the "Dairy State," Madison was an obvious place for a chapter. The Iota Chapter, as it was named, has been an influential organization on the Greek campus and the university since then. More than 1,600 men have made the Iota Chapter their college home.
