Omicron Delta Kappa

Omicron Delta Kappa

Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society for college men and women, was founded in order to recognize and encourage superior leadership by persons of exemplary character in the areas of academics, athletics, service, journalism, and creative arts.

What is OΔK? 

Washington College’s Alpha Psi Circle of OΔK, established in 1937, recognizes the college’s most outstanding student leaders. To support leadership education, the Alpha Psi Circle sponsors and organizes a series of colloquia, talks, and special events throughout the year. The national scope of OΔK  can be found at www.odk.org


Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is as much an obligation and responsibility in leadership as it is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Membership is awarded to undergraduate junior and senior students. Student membership candidates must rank in the upper 35 percent of their class. You must also show significant leadership in at least two of the five phases of campus life:

1. Scholarship
2. Athletics
3. Campus or Community Service, Social and Religious Activities, and Campus Government
4. Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media
5. Creative and Performing Arts


Campus leaders today, community leaders tomorrow.
