Start a Chapter

Looking to impact your campus for Christ? Bring AGO to your school for the first time? Re-found one of our chapters? Founding an AGO chapter is one of the most rewarding things you can do in college! If you’re interested in learning more, read below about what our founding process looks like below. 


  • Step 1: Fill out interest and applications with your other prospective founders, prospective president interviews with the National Staff (varies, typically 1-2 weeks)
  • Step 2: Recruit other founders, aim to submit at least 15 Statements of Faith, begin meeting, have a group interview with National Council, and gain colony recognition from AGO National Leadership (varies, typically 1-4 months)
  • Step 3: Initial founders host recruitment events to add more founders, after which all colony members complete the founding process together and are invited to informal initiation (8-10 weeks)
  • Step 4: After the founding process is completed, and approved by National Council, founders who have completed the founding process are to hold their first rush in the semester following their founding semester (1 week)
  • Step 5: Upon successful completion of first rush and vote of approval by National Council, the colony will begin a pledge process for their new members (8-10 weeks).
  • Step 6: Upon successful completion of initiation for new members, and an approval vote from National Council, colony will be recognized as an official chapter of Alpha Gamma Omega.

Founder Testimonials

"Helping found a chapter of AGO gave me the opportunity to create a legacy that was worth leaving. Thanks to the hard work that my brothers and I put in during the colonization process (and by the grace of God,) thousands of future college students will have the chance to experience the brotherhood that fraternities provide while being able to simultaneously deepen their relationship with Christ!"
