The Omicron Delta Kappa National Day of Service

A 2013 graduate of Atlanta’s Emory University, Maral Cavner graduated with highest honors, earning a bachelor of arts in sociology. As an undergraduate, she functioned as a student ambassador for the university and as a senior mentor in the Department of Sociology. Maral Cavner also maintained membership in several campus organizations including the Alpha Kappa Delta International Honors Society and Omicron Delta Kappa.

A nationwide initiative among Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) chapters around the country, the National Day of Service addresses specific needs within college campuses and the local community. ODK suggests several ways in which to provide service, including organizing teams to participate in projects or events for Habitat for Humanity or the American Cancer Society, volunteering at a local soup kitchen, or helping to clean up a local park or neighborhood.



Established in 1914, ODK is a national leadership honor society that fosters exceptional leadership and versatility in college. As the first society to honor and recognize service and leadership, ODK applauds achievement in academics, athletics, community service, the creative and performing arts, and journalism and mass media.
