School has started! The undergrads have moved back into a house that has changed significantly over the summer. All 27 new initiates are accommodated and all of the brothers can see light at the end of the tunnel. New study rooms are nearly completed, the existing study rooms have been professionally cleaned and painted, and all have air conditioning installed (although not all connections are made yet). Rec room, laundry room, and Blue Room are scheduled for completion next week; dining room end of Labor Day week; foyer, new chapter room, and living room in October.
As Eta Chapter recently celebrated 100 years in 2014, it is clear that its current members are still leaders on campus, and its alums are leaders in agriculture.
The house, undergoing significant renovation in 2008 with a very successful “Raise the Roof” campaign, is one of the best maintained houses on campus – but lacks some features that are now becoming standard in many dorm and fraternity houses.
We are embarking on the most ambitious expansion of our house since the new addition in 1960! A fitting start to a new century at Eta Chapter.
"When I came to the AGR House I was a young kid, I thought I had a lot of close friends, knew what I wanted to do in life and didn't need much help. When I left 201 Gray, I left as a man, who has brothers for life that helped me get where I am today. I'll never be able to repay what AGR has done for me, but this is a start".
