Chi Alpha @ Stanford officer Aaron Polhamus was just awarded a Rhodes Scholarship
(see page 10 of the document). That means he gets 2 or 3 years to study at Oxford — fully subsidized. The Stanford Daily has a brief write-up
on it which quotes Aaron at some length.
Being a Rhodes Scholar is a big deal — some notable recipients of the award include Bill Clinton, Wesley Clark (the general turned politician), Robert Reich, Daniel Boorstin (the historian), physicist Brian Greene (yeah, the one who writes the cool books about science), George Stephanopoulos, current Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, and scads of congressman and senators. Oh, plus Kris Kristofferson (really).
So congrats, Aaron!
