For those of you that don’t know me I am very professionally minded which is why I was a bigger player in FFA and DECA in high school and why I am a good member of Alpha Gamma Sigma here in college. So to be a person’s portfolio especially the resume is very important to me so I did some research on some creative ways to create our own online resumes and made this prezi to share what I learned!
Well folks we are all starting to see the summer weather finally in Missouri, kind of seems like we skipped over Spring. And along with summer means the start of our slow period. Many sad goodbyes have been said to our three members (Weston, Tommy, and Niko) that have graduated this last semester and the group has split up and gone home for awhile. This is where some of those job training skills come in handy as graduates look for careers and the rest of us look for summer employment. Steven has already started us off early by acquiring a good job with the traffic department at Missouri State University and I know that Niko has gone back to his home in Wisconsin where I think he has a job. But in the midst of all the good byes we also know that this is the season for camping and bonfires and later in July we will have a annual float trip to start planning out the year ahead. So I thought it would be appropriate to attach a good summer song for y’all to enjoy!
Through out the year, brothers get together to do school work together as a study group. This promotes better academics and better retention among our members. This is a great strategies for our members that have the same or similar classes. This semester the main classes have been animal science, biology, and sustainable agriculture. These study hours are an essential part of our fraternity because it promotes the three biggest goals of our brotherhood – academics, brotherhood, and career skills.
However like almost all study programs will say to be a boss at studying you have to have some study breaks every now and again. For us these breaks just happen periodically when we all start doing something weird and completely non academic. Usually our study sessions are in Karls Hall and that means that we don’t have to worry about disturbing other students.
My first semester of final studying I remember breaking out all at once into a chorus of Bohemian Rhapsody or some other classic, awesome song like Hotel California. These are the parts of study that make us come together into a even deeper brotherhood. There have been times when I’ve taken a nap and woken up in a pile of blue glitter or that I’ve started writing cowboy poetry on the board. All in all we have a good system that makes us better brothers and it is these times when I am extremely proud of our brotherhood.
As it says in the About Me this blog is for logging my activities and experiences of being in Alpha Gamma Sigma fraternity. However I am not starting this at the appropriate time considering that summer is about to begin which means that there will be very little fraternity workings. But I want to have this up and running with good information for potential rushes in the spring. So what I will do is keep a steady rate of stories and experiences from this last year. Course this isn’t a official blog so there may be a post every now and then about other major events that have gone on but they will all relate to agriculture. So keep reading and laugh at some of the stupid and fun things that have happened as I tell my stories of becoming a Sig.
Well y’all I’m a small town country boy trying to find a place in this world. I have lived on a small beef cattle ranch all my life which has ingrained an inborn love of agriculture in me. Along with working on the farm my parents also introduced me to hunting and conservation at an early age by participating in Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and National Wild Turkey Federation events. When I was around 12 years old I started dabbling in leather craft and by the time I entered high school I was running a small business I called Tumbl’n T Leather. During high school I was very active in FFA which has really inspired me in more recent times. Now I am 19 years old and am attending Missouri State University with the goal of dual majoring in Agricultural Education and Business. I am still an active member in the RMEF, NWTF, and FFA along with new activities like Farm Bureau and Alpha Gamma Sigma Fraternity.
I am keeping this blog to log my involment with Alpha Gamma Sigma Fraternity, Epsilon Chapter and I hope that I accurately describe our great organization and that when I graduate another member will take it over. However this blog is not an official blog of our chapter therefore all views and opinions presented are my own.

Alpha Gamma Sigma is a fraternity built upon an appreciation of Agriculture. Our membership begins with this common bond. Most of our members are agriculture majors, but this is not a requirement. Many members are from farm backgrounds or enjoy the backwoods attitude you get with good ol boys, and this is their reason for interest in an agriculture fraternity. We are also very much a social fraternity, participating in many Greek and campus activities like Homecoming and Greek Week. Our members are also involved in many other campus organizations, which is strongly encouraged. With our smaller size and common interests, we feel that our brotherhood is the strongest of any fraternity on campus. It is from this brotherhood that I come from and I have started this blog to help promote our organization, share our views, and tell our story.
