The mission of Omicron Delta Kappa is to identify, honor and develop leaders in collegiate and community life, by encouraging collaboration among students, faculty, staff and alumni.
The Beta Rho Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa is the Hillsdale College chapter of the national leadership and service honorary that recognizes and encourages superior scholarship, leadership, and exemplary character. Each spring, a rising senior member of the honorary is awarded the David S. Nicholson Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Scholarship in recognition of achievement that is outstanding among his or her Omicron Delta Kappa peers.
A 3.4 GPA and demonstrated on-campus leadership are the only requirements. Each year, the current Circle selects the next Circle based on applications from rising seniors.
