Rhodes is a national, selective college committed to the liberal arts and sciences. Our highest priorities are intellectual engagement, service to others and honor among ourselves. We enjoy one of the country’s most beautiful campuses in the heart of Memphis, an economic, political and cultural center, making Rhodes one of a handful of prominent liberal arts colleges in a major metropolitan area.
We provide our students access to world-class faculty and real-world experiences, which enables them to develop the intellectual muscle to move big ideas and the character to do so in the service of humanity. Simply put, the mission of Rhodes College is to prepare students to become essential in life and career, wherever those journeys take them.
Rhodes has been named America’s #1 Service-Oriented College by Newsweek, and has been named a College That Creates Futures and a College That Pays You Back by the Princeton Review.
