Grant Hollis

Scholar Grant Hollis (Civil Engineering, Engineering Management) reached the final round of the Rhodes Scholar competition in fall 2009. While he was not among the 32 students nationwide chosen to study at Oxford, Grant was characteristically upbeat.

It was a great experience to meet people who have achieved the same level as I have, but in different areas. The most important thing I learned from the interview is to be comfortable and be yourself. We still need someone to win from Pacific!
