Super Couples

Boyfriend, Girlfriend Win Rhodes

There must be something in the water at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Seniors Henry Spelman and Libby Longino will be heading to Oxford as a couple after each of them won a Rhodes Scholarship on Saturday. The prestigious Rhodes award, won by the likes of former President Bill Clinton, pays tuition, board, and living expenses for two years of study at Oxford, an annual value of about $50,000. Each year about 80 students are chosen worldwide for the honor, and this year, 32 U.S. students won. Spelman said that the "really cool" part about winning the prize was that his girlfriend won too. Spelman will use his the opportunity to pursue a doctorate in Latin and Greek while Longino will study human trafficking.
