New Collegian David Winterton Wins 2005 Rhodes Scholarship
David Winterton has won one of 11 Rhodes scholarships to attend Oxford University awarded in Australia for 2005. David went through an exhaustive interview process including a panel of 7 interviewers. Since 1904 only 500 Australians have been selected for this high honour.
David lived in 'New' for three years from 2001; whilst here he was President of the New College Students Association and Collegian of the Year (2002).
David studied a double degree in Science and Law (BSc/LLB, UNSW). He was also a member of the Union board and chaired its Membership and Audit sub-Committees. He did all of this as well as being President of the UNSW Law Society and an Academic tutor in his final year at New College.
David spoke in glowing terms of his time at New College: "The fantastic experience I had at New College for three years definitely helped me to gain a Rhodes scholarship. I loved my time at New College, it was worthwhile and helped me in developing the necessary skills and attributes in leadership, sports, and community work to succeed in gaining a Rhodes scholarship." New College wishes David well.
