This year's 32 Rhodes scholars were awarded this weekend—a group that includes three varsity athletes and two students from schools that are new to the honor, one of the most prestigious academic awards, which enables the selected students to study at Oxford for two or three years.

The athletes include Florida State starting safety Myron Rolle, who completed his undergraduate degree in 2½ years, as well as two athletes from UCLA.

Brian Krohn and Noelle Lopez attended Augsburg College in Minneapolis and California's Santa Clara University, respectively—both schools that had not produced Rhodes scholars previously.

Princeton University had three scholars this year, the most of any school. Harvard, MIT, Northwestern, and UCLA had two scholars each.
