It was founded December 3, 1914, at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, by 15 student and faculty leaders. Chapters, known as circles, are located on more than 300 college campuses.

On some campuses, the local circle of ΟΔΚ can be a quasi-secret society in regard to the way its members are selected and kept secret for a period of time. Membership in the Omicron Delta Kappa Society is regarded as one of the highest collegiate honors that can be awarded to an individual, along with Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Beta Kappa. In order to be selected as a member of ΟΔΚ, one must be in the top thirty-five percent of students on their respective campuses and hold a leadership role in one of the five phases of campus life.
