About the Circle
The ODK Adelphi Circle became a reality May 17, 2002. We currently hold one formal induction per year in December where we average approximately 16-20 inductees. In May we have a senior send-off, emerging leader and installation of officer ceremony. Emerging leaders are nominated by the current members and are typically freshman and sophomore students who are proving to be “leaders among leaders” and possible rising ODK members.
The ODK Adelphi Circle participates in the National Day of Service, Panther Day of Service, and is also active with University’s Relay for Life event. In addition, the Circle organizes an annual leadership conference for students by students that includes topics such as purposeful involvement, leadership transitions, the importance of community, programming, networking, and transformational leadership.
As an ongoing recognition and networking tool, the Circle regularly uses Instagram (@odk_adelphi) to post “Membership Spotlights,” featuring current ODK members and their phases in campus life.
