ODK is a national honor society
that recognizes individuals for their accomplishments in leadership
endeavors and for their academic achievements.
Why should I join ODK?
Ask any employer or job recruiter
and they'll tell you they are always looking to hire recent grads with
strong leadership skills. At our monthly meetings you'll have the chance
to hear real people speak about their leadership experiences at school,
work or in their communities (and let's not forget the free food!). In
addition, you will have a chance to volunteer and get to know other
members of ODK. Not only is this a great resume booster, it's also a
great way to give back to the community.
What are the requirements?
New members of ODK are invited from
the Junior and Senior classes at the beginning of the fall semester; and
the Junior class at the beginning of the Spring semester by the current
membership according to good standing within the University, academic
achievement in the upper 35th percentile and achievements in
leadership in five key areas:
·Campus and community Involvements
·Journalism, Publications, Speech,
and the mass Media
·Creative and Performing Arts
How does the application process
Prospective members will be
notified and invited through the Bulletin from ODK in September or
February. You must complete our application form and sign up for an
interview; academic standing and disciplinary records are reviewed with
your permission. Final decisions are made on these factors. New members
are invited to pay a one-time membership fee. The applications are
reviewed by the national headquarters of ODK. New members are inducted
fall and spring semester.
In which service events does ODK
In the past, ODK members have
helped out with the St. Thomas Community Clean-up (both fall and spring).
Books for Africa, Family Weekend, and Trick-or-Treat for Cans. And we're
always open for new suggestions!
