The University of Georgia Alpha Upsilon circle of Omicron Delta Kappa unites students and faculty who have demonstrated leadership and achievement in the five phases of campus life in the interest of the development of the University through commitment to service, integrity, excellence, and friendship.
Nationally, the purpose of the Omicron Delta Kappa Society is threefold:
First, to recognize those who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities and to inspire others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines;
Second, to bring together the most representative students in all phases of collegiate life and thus to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate interest;
Third, to bring together members of the faculty and student body of the institution, as well as other Omicron Delta Kappa members, on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness.
Service - to the university and to each other
Integrity - doing the right things for the right reasons
Excellence - the highest of quality in all that we do
Friendship - amongst members - the relationships formed should be as much of a reward of membership as anything
