What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
Academic success ranks highly at Rhodes college. Expect a number of papers, hours of studying, and daily participation grades in most classes. Although the courses can at times become overwhelming, studying greats like Aristotle and Dante and the writing of many papers help a student develop crucial skills in reading, writing, and analytical thinking that forces one to challenge his ideals.
Richard from Frisco, TX
It is obvious that the professors at Rhodes LOVE what they do! In most classes, students are required to complete a generous amount reading outside of class. Professors often try to look beyond the textbook during lectures in order to give students a better understanding of the material. Never, ever slack on reading assignments, as it will affect your performance in class and teacher will refer them! Professors also move at fast pace, so if you are struggling with material or concepts you can easily talk with the instructor during office hours. Another thing to remember is that most classes will require a final 10 page research paper, so it would be a good idea to brainstorm about your topic before you become swamped with papers. Time management and use of resources is vital to being a successful student at Rhodes!
