Omicron Delta Kappa is a nationally-recognized honorary leadership fraternity. The Theta Circle at The University of Akron was established in 1922, making it the 8th oldest circle in the nation. The Theta Circle has a rich legacy. Many influential Theta Circle members have buildings on campus named after them; for example, Dominic Guzetta (past president), Harry Schrank (past Board of Trustees member), and Dr. Mark Auburn (past Provost). Other influential Theta Circle members in the community and on campus include Sandra Pianalto (member, J.M. Smucker Board of Directors), Dr. Dale Mugler (prior Dean, Honors College) and current President, Scott Scarborough.
As of Spring 2015, there are about 30 active members in our Circle. We are always looking for more of today’s leaders who want to get involved in our Circle, especially students and faculty who are involved in the following aspects of campus life:
Applications are open to students with at least 60 credits (juniors) and greater than a 3.00 cumulative GPA. We send emails at the beginning of fall and spring semester to students who meet these criteria. Meeting times usually vary each semester, but we try to make sure that everybody can be a part of this great honorary leadership fraternity. Come join the Theta Circle family this semester!
