University of Georgia Honors student Juliet Elizabeth Allan of Atlanta has been awarded a 2013 Rhodes Scholarship to attend England’s Oxford University, where she plans to pursue a master’s degree in Modern Middle Eastern Studies. She is one of 32 Rhodes recipients in the United States.
Allan, who is a UGA Foundation Fellow, plans to graduate from UGA in December with bachelor’s degrees in Arabic, economics, and international affairs as well as a master’s degree in international policy.
Allan is UGA’s fourth Rhodes Scholar in the past six years. Before Allan, UGA’s most recent recipient was Tracy Yang in 2011.
Allan has traveled to six different continents through various UGA study abroad programs. She studied Arabic in Morocco through the State Department’s Critical Language Scholarship and, separately, as part of a UGA Maymester program. Ultimately, she would like to serve in the State Department’s Office of Policy Planning.
Allan is a member of UGA’s chapter of the Roosevelt Institute, a national student-run think tank, where she has written papers about energy policy and education and has also taught policy analysis to undergraduates. Allan has participated in the university’s Center for Undergraduate Research Symposium and presented results of her research on employment dynamics at two national conferences. She has also interned at the University’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, through which she traveled to China during an annual training program the institute conducts in Beijing.
Allan has served as the co-director of the Thomas Lay After School Tutoring Program, where more than 100 UGA students provide educational help to elementary and middle school students in Athens each semester. She also has researched issues involving early childhood education. She is a Presidential Scholar and member of the Phi Kappa Phi, Palladia, and Blue Key honor societies.
The Rhodes Scholarship is often seen as the most prestigious honor a student can receive. The University’s recent streak of Rhodes Scholars and other top-tier scholarship recipients speak volumes of our high caliber of students. The UGA Alumni Association and friends congratulate Allan as our latest Rhodes Scholar. We wish her the best in her continued education at Oxford and in her future undertakings. Go Dawgs!

Dwayne Bass (AB ’98) is saving the planet one sculpture at a time. Bass (AB ’98) founded TWOvital, a company that creates awareness of environmental issues and promotes sustainability through its art. The photographer and sculptor transforms trash from construction sites, such as scraps of wood and metal, into sustainable works of arts.
In 2008, Bass created the first-ever sculpture to receive credits under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification program. Using one of TWOvital’s sculptures is worth a LEED credit for developers and builders seeking LEED certification in their projects.
For Bass, creating beautiful works of art from reclaimed materials was not a new endeavor. “I have been making things from leftover or broken items since I was a kid. I made a car out of a broken tape deck when I was about six. I was always fascinated with taking something that is broken and making it into something it was not intended to be,” he said.
From his interest with sustainable art, Bass also created RUBBLOX, a line of furniture crafted from recycled car tires. For information about Bass's work, visit twovital.com.
Thank you, Dwayne, for your commitment to improving the environment and representing UGA so well.
On behalf of the UGA Alumni Association, I want to wish all of our UGA alumni and friends an especially happy Thanksgiving.
