The purpose of Alpha Gamma Rho is "to make better men." We achieve this goal through academics, social events, and in being a professional fraternity. In fact, we are the only social and professional fraternity at LSU. AGR is similar to other social fraternities in that it has a strong group of members and an on-campus house in which members can live during their college years. Our members also enjoy socials and exchanges with other Greek organizations.

However, AGR offers more than just the social aspect; it is also a professional fraternity. All members of AGR have career interests related to our fraternity’s values, which is beneficial when seeking a job or internship. We also take pride in the traditions handed down to us from our many great alumni. This tradition includes, but is not limited to, an interest in agriculture, a love for your brother and your community, and a strong desire to make yourself the best person you can be.
