AUBURN – Auburn University graduate and Rhodes Scholar Jordan Anderson was recently named to the second team in USA Today’s All-USA College Academic Team competition. Each year the newspaper recognizes the top college students in the country based on academics, leadership, activities and the application of their talents beyond the classroom.
Anderson, who was named a Rhodes Scholar last fall, graduated in May with a 3.93 GPA in the Department of Biomedical Sciences. The Roanoke, Va., native will head to Oxford this September where he plans to enroll in a master’s degree program in global health science study. Anderson hopes to pursue medical mission work in the future.
