Subject: RECOGNIZING CAMPUS COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP
Omicron Delta Kappa – one of the most prestigious national societies to
recognize leadership – is now accepting applications for the Spring 2017
semester. Sigma Circle of ODK at College Park began in 1927 and, since then,
has initiated over 4000 students, faculty, and honorary members. ODK tapped
Senator Joe Tydings in 1950 when he was playing varsity lacrosse and US
Congressman Steny Hoyer in 1962 when he was SGA Vice President. ODK has also
initiated other proven leaders such as State Senate President Thomas V.
“Mike” Miller, President Wallace Loh, Coach Brenda Frese, ESPN’s Scott
Van Pelt, and honorary members President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Civil
Rights Activist Julian Bond. The names of all of these outstanding leaders,
along with many others, are engraved on the ODK Fountain on McKeldin Mall.
ODK brings together junior, senior, and graduate students with our most
outstanding faculty members, to recognize campus leaders and to encourage
other students to achieve. We seek accomplished leaders in five areas of
campus community life.
