Rhodes College sits on a 100-acre park-like campus near downtown Memphis, Tennessee. Check out the campus sights in the Rhodes photo tour. Rhodes is a private, liberal arts college associated with the Presbyterian Church. The college places emphasis on service, and the school's strengths in the liberal arts and sciences have earned it a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.

Rhodes College students have extremely high acceptance rates into graduate programs in business and law. With a 9 to 1 student / faculty ratio and an average class size of 13, Rhodes College students get a lot of personal attention from the faculty. It's perhaps no surprise that Rhodes is one of the 40 colleges featured in Loren Pope's well-regarded book, College's That Change Lives.
As a high-quality small private college, Rhodes College is not cheap. However, the great majority of students receive significant grant aid to help fund their educations.
