Congratulations to Princeton University senior Aaron Robertson, recently named a 2017 Rhodes Scholar! From 2013-2015, Aaron served as a Prose Editor for The Adroit Journal. According to a Rhodes Scholarship Foundation press release, Aaron plans to spend his time at Oxford University pursuing a M.Phil. in Modern Languages.

This is the second year in a row a staff member of The Adroit Journal has been recognized as a Rhodes Scholar. Last year, fellow prose editor Russell Bogue (UVA, ’16) was named a 2016 Rhodes Scholar, and began his study of Political Theory at Oxford.

See below for the full note about Aaron and his accomplishments, released by the Rhodes Scholarship Foundation.

Two years, two prose editors! We’re over the moon for Aaron, and can’t wait to see him soar to new heights.

Congratulations to all 2017 Rhodes Scholars, listed here in The New York Times.
