Philanthropy

The Big Event

An annual campus-wide service event centered on giving back to the community. It is the largest, single-day service project in Nebraska. AGR has strong ties to the event, and typically has a strong turnout of volunteers.

Barn Party

Our Kappa Chapter’s annual fall philanthropy is the Barn Party hosted at Uncle Ron’s. We bring in a mid-level country band and raise money for the Children’s Hospital in Omaha.

Hog Roast

The annual spring Hog Roast is a joint effort with the Sigma Alpha sorority. We butcher hogs and serve smoked pork at the house.

Farmer’s Ball

Based on the success of AGR’s Barn Party, Uncle Ron’s has asked the Kappa Chapter to host a similar event in the spring. The Farmer’s Ball proceeds benefit the Lincoln Food Bank.

Adopt-A-Highway

The Kappa Chapter has adopted a two mile stretch of Highway 77 just north of Lincoln. Undergraduate brothers rid the ditches of litter during an evening in April in an effort to keep our country beautiful.

Campus Involvement

Alpha Gamma Rho emphasizes leadership both within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the University as a whole. Our brothers have led the largest student organizations on campus and we take pride in building lifelong leadership skills that will help shape our communities after graduation.
