Senior Jake Reagan (PolSci, Span'20) has been named a 2020 Rhodes Scholar, becoming the second CU Boulder student to win the prestigious scholarship in as many years.
A Boulder native and honors student majoring in political science and Spanish with a minor in philosophy, Reagan learned of the award on Saturday following an interview in Salt Lake City. He shared the news by phone with his parents, his twin sisters who are also CU Boulder students, and his younger brother, who were gathered together in Boulder awaiting his call.
“It’s surreal,” Reagan said while waiting to catch a flight back home to Colorado on Sunday. “I just feel so deeply grateful to all of the so many different people who helped me get to right now. I feel so blessed.”
