About the Circle

The APSU Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa continues to attract quality student leaders on campus. With membership selection occurring each academic semester, our circle is comprised of approximately 75 students, faculty, and staff representing almost all the colleges on campus. The circle meetings periodically each semester to conduct business, select new members, and preform initiations. To quality for membership, a candidate must have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.10 and excel in one of the five areas of campus life.


The APSU Circle of ODK is known for our annual “Late Night Study Break” which is held each semester before final exams. Additionally, our circle traditionally sponsors candidates for Homecoming Court (and we almost always are selected!); participate in ODK’s National Day of Service; and cosponsor programs with other organizations on campus to promote and encourage excellence among students.
