This weekend the Rhodes Trust announced its next class of Rhodes Scholars. The 32 students will study (for free) at the University of Oxford in England for two or three years, starting next October.

The application process is rigorous: More then 1,500 students across the country sought endorsement from their college or university to apply. This year, 837 students at 309 schools were endorsed. On Saturday, 32 were selected.

The University of Chicago, Harvard College and Stanford University had three scholars each. Two universities had their first Rhodes Scholars in history: Ursinus College in Pennsylvania and the University of California at Irvine. And South Dakota, for the first time, had two scholars.

The University of Delaware is located in Newark Del., not Neward, Del. Vice President Biden is going to be mad at you. PAC

Several guys in my residence hall were told to hit the road because they definitely were not scholars.

"And South Dakota, for the first time, had two scholars."

... and both of them went to the same high school, Lincoln High in Sioux Falls.

For those of us who remember -- and care about -- fact that Rhodes was originally not open to women, nor was USMA at West Point, how lovely to see a woman from the Academy winning a Rhodes!

The Rhodes Scholar was from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD not USMA in West Point, NY.
