Welcome all ODKer’s!
As this upcoming year rolls around the corner, it is with great pride that I will be serving as your 2017-2018 President. I strive to continue ODK’s legacy and lead FIU’s circle in becoming even more prestigious of an organization than we already are.
Alongside my Executive Board, we will be marketing ODK throughout the community and to our National Headquarters to showcase what our members have accomplished. We will also be working with some advisors at FIU for our annual student leadership summit. Continuing our value of service through leadership, I hope we can work together to lead our circle to great heights!
Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, was founded December 3, 1914 at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia by 15 student and faculty leaders. The founders formulated the idea that leadership of exceptional quality and versatility in college should be recognized, that representatives in all phases of college life should cooperate in worthwhile endeavors, and that outstanding students, faculty, and administrators should meet on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness. ODK® was the first college honor society of a national scope to give recognition and honor for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities and to encourage development of general campus citizenship. Since its founding, Omicron Delta Kappa has initiated over 300,000 members.
The Society recognizes achievement in the following five areas:
* Campus/ Community Service, Social/Religious Activities, and Campus Government
* Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media
* Creative and Performing Arts
