Students at conference

Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) is the oldest student leadership honorary in the nation. Wright State's Circle was founded in 2004 and recognizes exemplary student involvement and achievement in athletics; campus or community service; journalism, speech, and the mass media; social and religious activities and campus government, and creative and performing arts.

The Purpose of the Omicron Delta Kappa SocietyStudents standing, presenting at conference

  • To recognize those who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities and to inspire others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines;
  • To bring together the most representative students in all phases of collegiate life and thus to create an organization that will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate interest;
  • To bring together members of the faculty and student body of the institution and other Omicron Delta Kappa members based on mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness.
