Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society. The Purpose of The Omicron Delta Kappa Society is Threefold: - First, to recognize those who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities and to inspire others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines; - Second, to bring together the most representative students in all phases of collegiate life and thus to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate interest; - Third, to bring together member of the faculty and student body of the institution, as well as other Omicron Delta Kappa members, on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness.
ODK is first of all a leadership society. We then recognize achievement in the following five areas: Scholarship Athletics Campus/ Community Service, Social/Religious Activities, and Campus Government Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media Creative and Performing Arts
