    MENAS student Leah Crowder has received a prestigious Rhodes Scholarship and will continue her studies at the University of Oxford next year.  Leah is completing the MENAS Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP) which allows capable students to complete both a BA and an MA in less time than it would take to complete both degrees separately.  Leah explains why she chose UA and MENAS below.  It has been a privilege to have Leah in our program, one that she has enhanced through her dedication to scholarship and her positive attitude.
