Yep, that's right. Ball State is the proud university of TWO Rhodes Scholar finalists. One of them happens to be a friend of mine, and we're all SO PROUD of her! Actually, we're proud of both of them--I work in the office that helps students find and apply for scholarships, so I can say firsthand that our two students are legit. I've never read their files--because that would be a gross invasion of privacy--but everyone speaks very highly of them, and--geez! They're flippin' Rhodes Finalists! So, congratulations and the very, VERY best of luck to both of you!!!

And here are some drag kings representing.
This was just a fun performance.
I'm not sure if that's me singing along or not. As you can see, they're REALLY working the crowd. They were stellar.
