BGSU'S ODK Honor Society taps 30 for induction

A BGSU faculty member, one administrator and 28 students were inducted into the University's Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa March 30.

The initiation ceremony for one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious leadership honor societies took place in the University's Prout Chapel. The featured speaker was Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Rodney Rogers.

Dr. Edmund Danziger Jr., a University Distinguished Teaching Professor of history, and Deborah Novak, assistant dean of students, were both inducted.

The 28 students, all of whom are juniors, seniors or graduate students, were selected for membership based on academic excellence and demonstrated leadership in one or more of four additional categories: athletics; campus and community service, social and religious activities and campus government; journalism, speech and mass media; and creative and performing arts.

Danziger, whose expertise includes the history of 19th century America, the American West and American and Canadian Indians, joined the University faculty in 1966, after having earned his master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Illinois. He was chair of the history department for five years.

Novak, who earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Walsh University, joined the Bowling Green staff in 2001 as a residence hall director, becoming the assistant director of student affairs in 2004 and then assistant dean of students two years later.

ODK was founded in 1914 at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. It was the first college honor society to have a national scope and honor students for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities. Bowling Green's chapter or circle was created in 1949 and since then more than 1,700 students, faculty, staff and alumni have been initiated into the University circle.
