DETAILS: Since 1848, Rhodes College has been instilling the timeless values of truth and honor in Southern sons and daughters, and today increasing numbers of students from the rest of the country are discovering its charms. The school’s honor code means exams are not proctored and backpacks are left unattended in the cafeteria. Its small size gives everyone an opportunity to take on leadership roles in campus clubs and organizations, and people are generally friendly. Throw in the college’s proximity to Memphis’s world-famous Beale Street, barbecue, and the blues, and it’s clear that Rhodes offers a winning combination. “Rhodes students are generally fun-loving people with passions for academic advancement and community engagement,” says a senior.
To receive a Rhodes degree, students must demonstrate proficiency in 12 areas that form the foundation of the liberal arts. These include being able to critically examine questions of meaning and value, developing excellence in written communication, and understanding how historical forces have shaped human cultures. A new, yearlong First Year Experience course is also required of freshmen.
Rhodes is especially strong in the natural and social sciences, thanks to labs with state-of-the-art equipment. Business is the most popular major, followed by biology, psychology, English, and neuroscience. Educational studies is the newest major available. Aside from traditional lecture-style classes, the college offers seminars, honors programs, one-on-one Directed Inquiry tutorials, and interdisciplinary majors. Rhodes is a member of the Associated Colleges of the South, and it participates in a second degree program for engineers with Washington University in St. Louis. The academic climate at Rhodes is “demanding and challenging,” according to one student. “Professors expect quality contributions.” Sixty-nine percent of classes have fewer than 20 students, which means professors are more than talking heads.
RC Student Perspective: "Every professor I’ve had has been very personable, available, interesting, and invested in the students.”

Congratulations Class of '21 - It's time for your senior portraits! If you have not already taken them at O'Connor Bros. Studios, please call (805) 306-9542 and make an appointment for your senior portrait sitting. The sitting fee is $38, and this will be the picture used in the yearbook. We do not use any other photos in the senior section because we keep it looking very formal and official, so if you don't have a portrait taken, you will not appear in the senior section.
NOV 17 - Save the Date for Senior Dinner!
