Omicron Delta Kappa
Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) is a national honor society that recognizes outstanding junior and senior leaders, as well as faculty, staff, administration, and alumni. ODK upholds leadership (in academics, service, athletics, the media, and the arts) in its own members as well as promoting leadership in the college environment. The Eckerd College circle is an active part of the campus, sponsoring events at different school functions. Each fall applications go out for membership, and in the spring there is a leadership tap where outstanding freshmen and sophomores are recognized for their leadership.

Pre-Health Club
The primary objective of this club is to provide information to the students at Eckerd College involving their pre-health professional decisions. This club will be instrumental in giving them the experiences and help they will need to get into a Dental, Medical, or Veterinary school. The Pre-Health Professionals will also be a group that gives support to the students in regard to their schoolwork, social life, and the stresses to applying to a graduate program. This group will also show graduate schools that Eckerd College has an interest in their student's life after they receive their undergraduate degree by taking pre-health students seriously.

Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE)
Working together as a team through the mentoring of a faculty advisor, SIFE students apply their classroom experiences to develop and implement educational outreach projects that teach individuals in their communities the principles of market economics, entrepreneurship, person financial success skills, and business ethics. The challenge to SIFE students is not simply to inform, but also empower to help their target audiences reach their full potential through a better understanding of the principles of free enterprise. Individually, SIFE members improve the quality of life and standard of living for members of their communities. Collectively, they create a positive and sweeping force for change that impacts the lives of thousands.
