BETA PHI AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO
November 1992, student union, University of Idaho, 16 young men are initiated as colony members into what is to become the Beta Phi chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho. A long time dream of AGR alumni at Idaho became a reality and this new neophyte is launched. 28 years of ups and downs, frustrations, dreams, worries, tears, pride, and achievements, supported by a strong foundation of concerned alumni and a goal that was never lost sight of has endured. The "critical mass" has evolved and Beta Phi at the University of Idaho is a campus presence. Since then, Beta Phi has initiated 350+ members, all who make and shape history everyday.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN AGR?
Alpha Gamma Rho isn't like other fraternities. In AGR you'll get the opportunity to experience both a social and a professional fraternity. AGR does what you expect a social fraternity to do: socialize with other students on campus and people in the community. AGR is also like other social fraternities in that it has a strong group of members and a house you can live in during your college years. But AGR is more than just one of those strictly social fraternities; it is also a professional fraternity. All members of AGR have related career interests. AGR is for young men pursuing any career related to the agriculture, food or fiber industries. One more difference: at AGR there's no pledging. You join as an equal member. AGR does a careful review of all potential members in advance, so there's no need for a "weeding out" process.
