Sewanee's Alpha Alpha Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa was founded in 1929.
National leadership honor society Omicron Delta Kappa was founded in 1914 by 15 student and faculty leaders at Washington and Lee University. It was the first national college honor society to give recognition for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities and to encourage development of general campus citizenship. The Society recognizes achievement in five areas: scholarship; athletics; campus or community service, social or religious activities and campus government; journalism, speech and the mass media, and creative and performing arts. There are now Circles of Omicron Delta Kappa at more than 300 institutions of higher learning.
