Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society
Student candidates must be juniors or seniors who rank in the upper 35% in scholarship of their school or college (minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA) and must show leadership in at least one of five areas:
- Campus involvement, social/religious activities, student government, or community service
- Journalism, speech, and the mass media
- Creative and performing arts
Emphasis is placed on the development of the whole person, both as a member of the college community and as a contributor to a better society.
The purpose of ΟΔΚ is three-fold:
- Recognize those who have exhibited a high standard of leadership and efficiency in collegiate activities
- Bring together student leaders from all sectors of collegiate life in order to help mold the sentiment of the university for questions of local and collegiate interest.
- Bring together members of the faculty and the student body on a basis of mutual interest and understanding
Upon selection, initiation is performed at a special ceremony. The $85 initiation fee is required of each member. Your membership fee includes lifetime membership in ΟΔΚ, your membership certificate, a recognition button, and a three-year subscription to The Circle, the official ΟΔΚ publication.
