Matthew Eisenbath

Matthew Eisenbath has earned a 3.385 cumulative GPA. He is Vice President for Membership Development in the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity. Here, he teaches freshmen the traditions of the University of Missouri and Alpha Gamma Rho. In Alpha Gamma Rho, he also participates in various philanthropic activities, service events and blood drives.

He has been a CAFNR Ambassador since November 2011. He is the organization’s Tri-Director, a role in which he coordinates tours, college fairs and other recruitment activities. He is also the Co-Chair of the MU Admissions Outreach Student Recruitment Team.

“As his academic adviser in the MU Science and Agricultural Journalism program, I have seen how carefully Matthew makes decisions about his life,” commented Sharon Wood-Turley, Science and Agricultural Journalism program chair. “When he was examining various paths he might take, he thoughtfully weighed his options and realized how deeply he was connected to CAFNR. In making the choice to stay, Matthew made a statement about who he is and where he wants to go.”


“Eisenbath is a leader in the CAFNR Ambassadors and Study Abroad Program. You may not realize that his skills have been recognized by the MU campus. He was selected to be not just a member of the MU Admissions Outreach Team, but the Co-Chair. Matthew is also a leader in his fraternity, serving as vice president of membership development.”
