Colin Walmsley '15, of Fort Macleod, Canada, was named Dartmouth's 78th Rhodes Scholar. At Oxford University, he plans to continue studying anthropology.

Following his studies, Walmsley hopes to "work as an advocate for human social justice and fairness," according to his Rhodes Scholars profile.

At the College, Walmsley is an anthropology and government double major. He plays for the rugby team, hosts a weekly radio show on 99 Rock andsings with the Brovertones a capella group.

Walmsley was one of six Dartmouth rugby players to be named an Academic All-American by USA Rugby for the 2013-14 season, an honor requiring an athlete to be a consistent starter and hold a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or higher.

Miriam Kilimo ’14 and Ridwan Hassen ’15 were also recently announced as Rhodes Scholars. They will join Walmsely at Oxford next year to pursue degrees in women's studies and public policy, respectively.
