About Alpha Gamma Sigma

Alpha Gamma Sigma is a national social and professional agricultural fraternity that exists on eight campuses. It is a member of the North-American Interfraternity Conference. The mission statement of Alpha Gamma Sigma is 'Preparing men for life by: coming together as scholars, living as brothers, becoming leaders of tomorrow.' The agricultural fraternity, Alpha Gamma Sigma (AGS), was first organized as a local fraternity at Columbia, Missouri, on January 28, 1923. It was the outgrowth of a feeling among certain men that the other agricultural fraternities were disregarding the type of men essential to the proper forwarding of agriculture. During the organization and growing period of Alpha Gamma Sigma, a similar organization was going through a period of development at Ohio State University. This organization was known as the National Agriculture Club. It was established October 23, 1922. During its first year its name was changed to Tau Gamma Phi Fraternity.
