Alpha Gamma Sigma-Delta Chapter


Chapter History

Alpha Gamma Sigma was founded at Tennessee Tech on May 20, 1961 and nationally in 1923 in Columbia, Missouri. The fraternity was established on the basis of agriculture and a common belief in God and it is their goal to recruit Heuristic Men. By this they mean that they are looking for men who would like to enhance classroom learning and discovery by putting theories into practice through interactions with the fraternity. Through Sanskrit, a newly implemented program to build Quality Men, no longer will a new affiliate be a pledge, but will start out as a "New Member." This program replaces pledging, and gives the brothers of Alpha Gamma Sigma a chance to evaluate prospective "New Members" as equals within the fraternity. Alpha Gamma Sigma is devoted to providing an environment which encourages growth in knowledge, wisdom, maturity, social graces, extracurricular activities, and leadership.
