Rhodes College

Rhodes aspires to graduate students with a lifelong passion for learning, a compassion for others and the ability to translate rigorous academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action. Students administer the Honor Code and interact with Memphis through service (80% of the students volunteer at nonprofits) and internships (60% participate in 150+ academic internships). All enjoy the city's amenities, from blues on Beale Street to the giant pandas at the zoo to museums, art galleries, opera and the symphony. The highly-selective, national college of liberal arts and sciences frequently has been cited for having one of the nation's most beautiful campuses.
