Unparalleled Leadership

Chapter President's Letter

As we move forward into the new academic year, I wanted to take this opportunity to share some important updates and plans for our fraternity. The men of Alpha Gamma Sigma continue to step up to various challenges that are presented before them, all while building each other to be better men. They continue to make lifelong relationships with one another, all while making a positive impact on campus. I wanted to share some important updates and plans for our fraternity.

Our rush chairmen are wrapping up what turned out to be a successful summer. Their goal was set to sign 32 new members, and they achieved that with the help of all the other actives, alumni, and parents. When we look for new men, we look to bring in individuals who embody our values, demonstrate leadership potential, and possess a genuine interest in making a positive impact on campus and in the community.

This upcoming year, we may have the potential to have the best philanthropy program in the history of our chapter. We have high aspirations for large-scale events to help donate to the new Bryan Cancer Center here in Lincoln. We continue to succeed in our smaller philanthropies, such as trash cleanup and carnival night, to make a positive impact on the community.

We have high expectations moving forward academically. Over the last three semesters, our GPA has continued to increase. This last semester, we had a 3.42 GPA with twenty-five members that were above a 3.8 semester GPA and twelve of those members had a 4.0. We continue to set a high standard moving forward so that we will become a top-five fraternity in academics next semester.

Our Fraternity Education Committee has taken huge strides in reformatting our membership education. They plan on developing a program that will help members all four years to help build our men into becoming the leaders of tomorrow. We have also continued our streak of having members serve on New Student Enrollment, Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council, NHRI, Leadership Mentors, and many other positions. We also continued our streak of having a member

serve on the Interfraternity Council Executive Board, which is the longest of any fraternity on campus.

Throughout the rest of my term as president, I would like to thank everyone in advance for being supportive and dedicated to helping Alpha Gamma Sigma succeed. Together, we will make this year a memorable one for our fraternity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the executive board.

Fraternally, Garrett Kriete

Grounded In

  • Study groups, intramural teams, and a variety of club involvements are all areas in which we work cohesively to achieve greater heights as a brotherhood.

  • The fraternity provides brothers not in blood, but in bond; countless genuine friendships, which grow into life-long relationships and opportunities.

  • By providing community and accountability, we help our members look after their mental, physical, and spiritual health through college’s many challenges.

  • We believe fairness throughout life is essential to success, which is why we consider this principle to be the pillar of all success.

  • Our Leadership Development Program, offices, committees, and campus involvements help prepare our members to adapt and prosper through life’s challenges.

  • The fraternity provides structure and guidance to young men, teaching them personal responsibility and respect for others.

  • In a society increasingly drawn toward short-term gratification, we teach true integrity through proper conduct and values.

  • Our members invest their resources (time, money, advice, and companionship) into this organization knowing that their efforts contribute to something greater than any individual.

  • We provide a professional environment and a multitude of resources and incentives to produce well-educated and highly-skilled individuals.

  • As college serves as a transition from childhood to adulthood, this fraternity teaches young men the skills and characteristics needed to be self-sufficient.

  • We exercise etiquette, courtesy, and respect in our relationships and help students network with others, for friendships lay the foundation for professional connections.

  • Classes, sports, and activities all provide practice in both impartiality and superiority, which are necessary in the competitive nature of life.

  • Temperate living, pertaining to many aspects of life, allows us to enjoy wholesome lives while maintaining success and respect amongst our associates.
