We couldn't be more proud that Tayo Sanders II was named a 2015 Rhodes Scholar. This is the Academy Award, the Grammy and the MVP of higher education. Only 32 Americans achieve this each year. To reach such heights it takes a lot of support, and it begins with a student like you who looks around at all of the opportunities here and then goes after them.
