The new home of Kappa Chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho is now under construction at the intersection of Holdredge and Idylwild Drive in Lincoln. After many meetings and preliminary planning, the demolition has been completed and new construction began in July. The Kappa Foundation board along with the assistance of WRK (a local developer) and the architectural firm of Sinclair-Hille designed the new house to accommodate 64 members of AGR with possibilities of expansion if needed in the future.
The new house will eliminate many of the shortcomings of the old house and allow AGR to move forward as one of the leading fraternities on the University of Nebraska campus. The design of the new chapter house allows it to fit into the East Campus architectural modes and yet not overwhelm the East Campus neighborhood. We will have off street parking available for many of the brothers along with state of art amenities throughout the house. Anticipated completion date of construction and ready for occupancy is early August 2013 (prior to the start of school).
The construction of the “new AGR house” along with many exciting happenings on East Campus and within the University of Nebraska positions the “Brothers of AGR” to be the leaders of today and the future leaders of tomorrow. The future is indeed bright for the actives and alumni of Kappa Chapter as we move forward.
