New Mexico Rhodes Scholar Gathering

April 24, 2012

About 60 UNM students, faculty and staff attended the seminar, on accessibility and costs of education, which was followed by a reception.  Prior to the 90-minute seminar, we did mock interviews of four top UNM students who plan to apply for one or more UK fellowships/scholarships next Fall.  This all was UNM's first such venture, and it was deemed quite a success.
