||Coastal Carolina University inducted 26 new members at its Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) Fall Induction ceremony recently.
Coastal Carolina University's circle of the national leadership honor society, Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), has selected 25 new members as part of its fall 2007 class.
David A. DeCenzo, CCU president, was the 26th new member as an honorary inductee.
ODK was founded in 1914 at Washington Lee University in Virginia. Membership is by invitation and awarded to undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students whose grade point average is in the upper thirty-fifth percentile of their class. In addition to this requirement students must have shown leadership in at least one of the following phases of student life including: scholarship, athletics, campus or community service, social or religious activities, campus governments, journalism, speech, mass media, and creative or performing arts.
