Congratulations once again to our newest inductees, and thank you to all who came out to support the Sigma Circle!
There are so many special moments in the life of an ODKer. Remember that moment when you first realized you were being tapped for membership? Amazing!
Pretty soon, you’re at induction and you can’t believe you’re a member of this group with all of these other spectacularly gifted leaders!
By the time you graduate, it’s old hat and you’re walking around taking pictures in your ODK cords and stoles Like. A. Boss.
But, there’s this one moment – one incredible moment – when it all crystalizes for you. You’ve made it. You’re a member of ODK.
We’re talking, of course, about that moment you see your name, in stone, on the ODK Fountain for the first time.
The names of our most recent inductees, from Fall 2013 to Spring 2015, have been engraved on the Fountain and those stones are now in place. The next time you’re on McKeldin Mall, you will see your name among the more than 4,000 other names of ODK members who have helped build, lead, and shape the University of Maryland since 1927.
Congratulations and thank you to all the members of ODK who make this university great!
