UMD Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK)

About Us

Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) is an organization for leaders. Our newly formed group is part of a national affiliation of over 300 campus Circles, representing approximately 6,000 new inductees every year. ODK consists of sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are in the top 33% of their class academically (typically a 3.4 GPA). Those who are eligible will be invited to apply on in the spring when our application opens. All majors are accepted! Leadership is defined by five different areas of campus: Academics, Athletics, Service, Communication, and Arts.
