What is Ol' AGS?

“The key to Ol’ AGS is that every member was individually outstanding prior to joining the group. They didn’t need Ol’ AGS to be popular, respected or liked…they did that on their own.”
— Chris Cochran ‘97

The Five Pillars of Ol' AGS

The foundation of Ol'AGS rests on five major pillars:

Accountability

"A body of men holding themselves accountable to nobody ought not to be trusted by anybody."

- Thomas Paine

integrity

"Perhaps the surest test of an individual's integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect."

- Thomas S. Monson

honor

"No amount of ability is of the slightest avail without honor."

- Thomass Carlyle

 

humility

"Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.'"

- 1 Peter 5:5

passion

"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion."

- Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
