Biography/Profile

The student chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) at Iowa State University was chartered in 1968. The purpose of the organization is to expose to students to the construction industry. Membership is open to all students interested in construction. The student chapter provides its members with numerous educational opportunities such as inviting guest speakers, planning field trips, service projects, and social activities.



Over the years their service projects have included providing repairs to buildings for local charities and building playground equipment. In 1980, Iowa State University decided that it would not hold its annual tree lighting ceremony since it could not afford to pay electricians to string lights on campus trees. Several student organizations offered to do the work for free and AGC was given the honor of stringing lights on campus trees that year.
