Ridwan Hassen ’15 has been named the College’s 77th Rhodes Scholar. Hassen, of Marietta, Georgia, studies computer science and neuroscience at Dartmouth.

Hassen transferred to Dartmouth after two years at Emory University and plans to study public policy at Oxford University, according to his Rhodes Scholars profile.

“The child of refugees from Somalia and Ethiopia, he has always worked to help support his large family, up to 30 hours per week, all the while achieving a superb academic record and leading many campus and community activities,” the profile reads.

Miriam Kilimo ’14 was announced as a Rhodes Scholar earlier this month.
