On Sunday, March 20, Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) initiated seven students, two staff members, and one member of the Farmville community. ODK is a national leadership honor society for college men and women. The Lambda Circle of ODK was established at Hampden-Sydney in 1924, and membership is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Selection of members is based on their influence as campus leaders to better campus life and to encourage high standards in all activities.
