Robinson, who is from Potomac, Md., is an opinion editor at The Daily Princetonian student newspaper and has spent two summers as an intern with Time magazine. He will study moral philosophy at Oxford.

"I've had such an amazing outpouring of warmth from people on campus, especially from my classmates," Robinson said of being named a Rhodes Scholar. "It's a tremendous experience."
