Maybe you haven’t earned a top grade point average (GPA) but are a leader at your college. Those who show leadership and service excellence are eligible for another type of honor society, the leadership honor society.
Employers recognize leadership honor societies as evidence of your potential for leadership in their organization.
Leadership Honor Societies:
Omicron Delta Kappa is the most recognized leadership honor society. Qualifications for membership include exemplary character, responsible leadership and service in campus or community life, superior scholarship, genuine fellowship, and consecration to democratic ideals.
Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is awarded to undergraduate junior and senior students, to students of graduate and professional schools and colleges of the institution, to members of the faculty and administration, and to alumni.
Student Success Strategy #23: Even if you are not a top grade-earning student, your college success can be recognized by honor societies that focus on leadership, service, or other criteria.
