Delta Kappa Honor Society

Established at Vanguard University in the early 1960`s, Delta Kappa is a national leadership honor society that recognizes those who have served our Vanguard University community.  Delta Kappa recognizes students who are exemplary in their Christian lifestyle as they serve their peers and represent our university. Inductees are honored and recognized with personalized engraved bricks and will be included with the legacy already displayed on the Campus Mall, in front of the Library. Criteria for selection includes:

  • Minimum 2.5 GPA

  • At least four consecutive semesters completed before induction

  • Christian character and service to the university and community (as demonstrated primarily through extracurricular involvement)
