What is ΑΓΩ?
Alpha Gamma Omega (ΑΓΩ, or “AGO”) is a national, Christ-centered fraternity. It was founded in 1927 at UCLA, making it one of the oldest national fraternities in the United States that have retained its Christian values. In 1938, UC Berkeley became home to the second chapter: Beta. There were 12 original charter members, with E. Harlan Fischer appointed as the first president. There are currently twelve active chapters. AGO maintains a close relationship with its Christian sorority counterpart, Alpha Delta Chi, considered the fraternity’s “sister sorority.”
The Beta Chapter
Alpha Gamma Omega is the only Christ-Centered Fraternity at the University of California: Berkeley campus since 1938. We are recognized by the IFC and are actively involved in the Greek system, local churches, and the Cal community. We own our own house about 3 blocks from campus where most of the active members live. Living at AGO is awesome. For a double, rent is about $600 a month and includes dinners prepared by a cook or a catering service, all utilities, food, high-speed internet, laundry facilities, and an incredible community. We also house boarders, who are not active members of the fraternity for varying reasons but enjoy living in the house (i.e. they attend local community colleges instead of UC Berkeley, and are therefore ineligible for active status). We believe that we are to love and serve our university and Greek community as Jesus loved & served us.
Our Purposes as a Fraternity
Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we, as Christian young men of Alpha Gamma Omega Fraternity purpose that it shall be the aim of this fraternity:
