Udupi: Rashmi Samant, an alumnus of Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), and a native of Manipal, has been elected president of the prestigious Oxford University Student Union.

This is the first time an Indian woman has been elected president of the union.

The number of votes received by Samant was more than the total votes received by three other contenders in the presidential elections.
