Clemson Student is a Rhodes Scholar
The class of U.S. Rhodes Scholars for 2022 includes the most women ever selected for the scholarship in one year, according to the Rhodes Trust. Of the 32 students chosen to study at the University of Oxford in England, 22 are women. For the first time, Clemson University had a student elected to the class – Louise Franke, a senior from Spartanburg. Franke is an Honors College student majoring in biochemistry with minors in political science and philosophy. Clemson has had six Rhodes finalists since 2006, including two this year, but Franke is the first to be named a Rhodes Scholar.
