About the Circle

Our Circle has initiated 382 members since it’s founding in 2010. We hold two initiations per year, one in fall and one in spring. We actively participate in leadership development initiatives throughout the year and hold meetings as needed. If you would like to apply for membership please go to: membership.odk.org.  If you have questions about our Circle, please e-mail Susan Lyons at [email protected].


In November, we handwrite personal notes of thanks and holiday wishes to the veterans in residence at the Tennessee State Veterans Home. We personally deliver these cards in December to each resident.
Our signature program is called True Blue Leadership Day. We set aside a day in April and invite five speakers to discuss all aspects of leadership. The event takes places during the normal class schedule on a Friday. Students may attend as many sessions as they would like.

The MTSU Circle is one of the local hosts for the 50th Biennial ODK Convention which will be held on the Belmont University campus from May 31- June 3, 2018.  Check out www.odk2018.org for more information.
