Rhodes Included in Recently Released Fiske Guide
Publication Date: 7/30/2012
Rhodes is among colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain profiled in the recently released 2013 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges.
Authored by Edward B. Fiske, who served for 17 years as education editor of the New York Times, the guide assesses institutions on a broad range of subjects including academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, and extracurricular activities.
According to a press release from the Fiske Guide, one of the most important purposes of the publication is to broaden students’ horizons about American higher education and help them select the right college that coincides with their particular needs, goals, interests, talents, and personalities.
With over 40 majors and minors, Rhodes is a four-year, private, coeducational liberal arts and sciences college. About 80 percent of students participate in service, 75 percent complete internships, and 65 percent study abroad or at off-campus sites in the U.S. In addition, the college has more than 100 student clubs, organizations, intramural and club sports as well as 20 men’s and women’s NCAA Division III intercollegiate teams.
