As May 1 approaches, undecided students or those disappointed not to have received an admissions offer from their top choice should take a look at the 2018 Rhodes Scholar winners. The diversity of educational institutions represented in the list speaks volumes about the range of universities that can prepare students to excel in a variety of areas. While elite schools are of course well-represented, the winners come from a variety of institutions including public, private and military. The accompanying press release highlights four students chosen from colleges who had never before had a Rhodes Scholar: Hunter College, CUNY; Temple University; the University of Alaska Anchorage; and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
