What is ΑΓΩ?
Alpha Gamma Omega (ΑΓΩ or “AGO”) is a 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 of ΑΓΩ. There are currently 11 active chapters across the US. ΑΓΩ maintains a close relationship with its Christian “sister” sorority, Alpha Delta Chi.
The Alpha Gamma Omega chapter at UC Berkeley is called the Beta Chapter. We are the only Christ-Centered Fraternity at UC Berkeley and are recognized by the IFC. We are also actively involved in the Greek system, in local churches, and in the Cal community. Many of the active members of the fraternity live at the house, which is 3 blocks from campus. Non-members also live at the house. As Christians, and as a Christ-centered fraternity, we believe that we are called by God to love and serve those around 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:
- To win others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ,
- To promote Christian fellowship,
- To present Christian ideals in word and deed,
- To search reverently for the truth,
- To uphold the traditions and ideals of the university,
- And to deepen the spiritual lives of the members.
