Alpha Gamma Rho is an international agricultural interest fraternity. The fraternity was founded in 1908 by the merging of two fraternities, Alpha Gamma Rho of Ohio State University and Delta Rho Sigma of the University of Illinois. In 1923 the fraternity accepted a charter for Phi Chapter at the University of California, Davis - this chapter is the first and oldest fraternity on campus; the house celebrates its anniversary each year on Picnic Day.
Alpha Gamma Rho is home to students of all majors and backgrounds that share similar interests in agriculture. Members may choose to live off campus in the fraternity house at 1111 Drake Drive near the Drake Apartments. The house is located next to a Unitrans bus stop.
Alpha Gamma Rho offers a $1000 scholarship for undergraduate students attending their first year at the university.
Alpha Gamma Rho is a social and professional, agriculture interest fraternity.
