About the Circle
ODK has been recognizing outstanding leaders at Auburn University since receiving its charter on May 22, 1928. In 2008 we celebrated our 80th anniversary. While junior and senior student leaders in any discipline are the primary initiates, faculty, staff, community leaders (Honoris Causa), graduate students and alumni are also initiated from time to time. Initiations are held in the fall and spring of each year. Nominations for membership are solicited from Deans, Department Heads, and others.
Throughout the year, the Omega Circle of ODK puts on several events on our campus at Auburn University. Omicron Delta Kappa is the official host of Homecoming Week at Auburn where we coordinate the Miss Homecoming announcement, Miss Homecoming banquet, float competitions, the Cake Race, and other events that week. ODK also hosts the annual “State of the University Address” where President Jay Gouge speaks to Auburn students about issues concerning them at Auburn as well as where the University is headed.
