Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
College students--Iowa--Cedar Falls--Psychology;
As a Presidential Scholar, became interested in how those people who were awaded the scholarship differed in their personality types from those equally intelligent and involved people who did not. Thus, I decided to compare the personality types of the University of Northern Iowa Presidential Scholars to those members of Omicron Delta Kappa, which is the highest academic honorary society on campus. I chose to compare Presidential Scholars to ODK members because the ODK society emphasizes many of the same qualities as the Presidential Scholars Program: academics, leadership, and service. To become a member of ODK, a student must have at least a 3.3 grade point average and be involved in a wide variety of extracurricular activities. However, for the purposes of this experiment, I chose to involve only those students with a 3.5 grade point average or higher.
