- Since 1848, we’ve aspired to graduate students who are passionate about learning, effecting change in their communities and the world, and exemplifying leadership and service with integrity. Our emphasis on service is rooted in our Presbyterian heritage.
- Our vision of a liberal education balances rigorous classroom academics with the challenge of putting these lessons into action. At Rhodes, you’ll be encouraged to engage in research, leadership and service opportunities—and to take responsibility for shaping your educational experience to meet your personal interests and goals. We offer a variety of degree options—as well as opportunities for pre-professional and dual-degree programs, study abroad and honor societies.
- Our academic program is based on four components: the Foundation program, major concentration, elective courses, and participation in co-curricular activities. The Foundation curriculum lays the structure for life-long intellectual pursuit.
- Our 100-acre wooded campus with Gothic stone buildings has been favorably compared to the Ivy League schools. Located in a historic residential neighborhood near downtown Memphis, Rhodes offers a beautiful and supportive environment for learning. We’d love to show you around and let you get a sense of the special environment that is Rhodes.
- Rhodes is one of 25 institutions to receive the prestigious Getty grant targeting campus preservation. Rhodes is ranked number five on Princeton Review’s “Happiest Students” list in the Best 361 Colleges, 2006 Edition. Rhodes ranks consistently in U.S. News & World Report’s Top Tier of America’s Best National Liberal Arts Colleges. Rhodes ties for 45th for 2005 and is noted for faculty, students and alumni support.
