Rhodes College Top Questions

What kind of person should attend this school?


This school is perfect for people who want an intimate campus environment. You'll get to know pretty much everyone by face, if not by name. The class size is also a huge plus--my intro biology class was the only class I had that was over 20 people, and most were less than that. Also, if a student has an interest in studying abroad, Rhodes has many wonderful opportunities. Most students study abroad for at least a semester.


A person who attends Rhodes should be driven to succeed well academically. You should be open minded, as you meet people of all races and backgrounds. Fee free to speak your mind, but also be ready to listen and take in other points of view. Be ready to step out of your comfort zone and strive for new experiences.


Someone who is looking for a well rounded liberal arts education and who is outgoing and willing to look outside of the school gates for things. Also those who are interested in greek life will be happy.
