Sing “We’re Proud to be OΔK”
Omicron Delta Kappa has an official song that may be sung at initiations, circle installation ceremonies, and regular meetings. “We’re Proud to be OΔK” celebrates our organization’s history, mission, and members. The music and lyrics were written by Sally Albrecht (Rollins College, ’75) and chorus written by Carl Bolte (UMKC, ’76).
A full performance of the song may be heard by clicking below.
