What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
Those visiting Rhodes should come expecting a college with a student body of about 2000 students. While this may seem petty, the low student count allows for small class room sizes that make it possible to have student/professor relationships that are essential to a students academic success. While the classes are rigorous, there are sports, Greek life, and other activities to become involved with on campus.
Richard from Frisco, TX
Make sure you apply for all of the scholarships you are eligiable for. Rhodes automatically looks at every student for some scholarships, but their are others that have separate applications. Some of the applications are difficult to find on the website, so look closely.
Freshman
One thing to take advantage of as a prospective student is the tours. The students who provide tours are very knowledgeable about the school and its history and they can give you a good idea of what Rhodes is all about as far as moral system, academics, and support for students. The school is very welcoming and professional about how they take care of prospective and their families. Take one tour and I guarantee you will fall in love! Another tip is to explore what goes on outside of Rhodes! The school is located near the Memphis Zoo, Pink Palace Museum, Overton Park, and more! Not only are these places fun to visit, but you can also discuss internships and summer jobs early in your college career.
Taylor from Memphis, TN
Rhodes is challenging for a reason. There are no easy classes, you have to do the work and apply yourself to do well.

bring rain boots - it gets really muddy on campus. use the resources they have available to you starting with the ra up to your counselor. order your books early.

If you are considering Rhodes, I would definitely come visit and then come attend. The college is amazing and everything you can imagine it to be. You'll have an amazing time.

Go see the campus. Nothing can compare to the actual experience of being there. After touring several Ivy League colleges, I can declare that Rhodes far surpasses them for beauty and provides a feeling of scholarship the minute you step on the campus.
