Fourth-year College students Evan Behrle and Charlie Tyson accepted Rhodes Scholarships Saturday. Tyson, the executive editor of The Cavalier Daily, and Behrle, the chair of the Honor Committee, are the 49th and 50th Rhodes Scholarship winners from the University.

Thirty-two students from across the United States win the coveted scholarship annually to study at Oxford University in the United Kingdom. Though multiple Rhodes Scholars were chosen this year from Harvard, Stanford and Yale, the University is just one of two public schools — along with the United States Military Academy — to notch two honorees.

Behrle, who is in the Politics Honors program, will study comparative social policy or politics while at Oxford, with a focus on urban poverty in post-industrial cities.
