About Rhodes College

What Rhodes offers goes beyond its top-tier liberal arts and sciences education. Rhodes offers a transformational experience, challenging students to explore innovative ideas, examine their values, and discover what they can contribute to their community and to the world.

Rhodes’ collegiate-Gothic campus sits on 110 wooded acres in the heart of Memphis, an economic, political, and cultural center, making Rhodes one of a handful of national liberal arts and sciences colleges in a major metropolitan area.

Among the stone and the stained glass is a place to belong, where alongside their professors and their peers, students are supported in reaching their full potential and going on to make meaningful change in their communities and the world.
