Our History:

ΑΓΡ Nu Chapter 1948

Alpha Gamma Rho was founded upon brotherhood, education, and agriculture. As brothers of ΑΓΡ, we strive to excel in all of these aspects. Our motto, "To Make Better Men", is a goal we set out to accomplish each and every day. To the brothers of Nu Chapter, ΑΓΡ is a college home away from home. We emphasize brotherhood through belonging, solidarity, social involvement, and accountability. At Nu Chapter, we want to see every man leave the organization as a lifelong brother, who is fully prepared for all that life has to offer him!

Nationally, Alpha Gamma Rho was founded in 1904 at Ohio State University, and has since expanded to over 70 campuses nationwide. Alpha Gamma Rho has had approximately 70,000 total initiates since its creation.


Nu Chapter was founded on March 15, 1919 as the 13th chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho. Since our founding, over 1300 men have been part of our brotherhood. In Nu Chapters time at NC State, our brothers have encompassed a wide variety of men: from campus club leaders to varsity athletes, our brothers have always held an outstanding presence on campus. Nu Chapter has been the recipient of the Caldwell Cup and Fraternity of the Year award numerous times at NC State; most recently receiving the Fraternity of the Year award in 2018! In the future, Nu Chapter looks to strive for continued success and excellence at NC State, as well as to our 100th Founder's Day on March 15, 2019!


Following Graduation, Nu Chapter has seen brothers go on to pursue careers in the military, in government, in commerce, in education, in technology, and of course in agriculture. After graduation, our members can remain an active part of the chapter through involvement in our alumni association, Nu Club!
