Earlier this year, Alpha Gamma Rho sent a total of 12 active and alumni brothers to the 65th National Alpha Gamma Rho convention, held in New Orleans Louisiana. While at convention, the chapter received two awards: one for recruitment (having been the most successful chapter in the country the past two semesters), and one one honoring the service of advisor Doug Craig. Three active members also served as voting delegates for discussions concerning the raising of dues and the welcoming of a new colony chapter. The brothers also took part in celebrating the retirement of Phill Josephson, the longest serving CEO in the history of the Greek community.
After five years and 2.8 million dollars, the renovations on Alpha Gamma Rho’s fraternity house are finally complete! Built originally in 1967, the house now has the capacity for 34 active brothers, a new kitchen, chapter room, and living room. The ribbon cutting took place on July 29th and was attended by over 100 brothers, friends, and university faculty members. AGR President Jacob Harrison said that the outpour of alumni support really showed his chapter that brotherhood isn’t just for four years: its for a lifetime. “I think it inspired some of our guys to look around and understand just how lucky we are to have an alumni that just so invested in how we are as chapter. It makes me want to give back when I’m an alumni.”
