The Residential Experience
"My first year I spent a lot of time in my dorm hall. Those guys and girls ended up being my first friends at Rhodes ... We all still are really close." ~ Mason Brown '17
Living on our award-winning campus doesn't just mean you're surrounded by beautiful architecture. It also means you're surrounded by friends, mentors, fellow scholars, and opportunities to serve, learn, play, and grow.
The Food & Dining Experience
“The Refectory is definitely one of the bigger hubs on campus, I would say between that and the library, that's where you can always find people to sit with and your friends.” ~ Mason Brown '17
Memphis has a rich culinary heritage that goes well beyond barbeque and, central to that, and to the way of life here, is that dining is a thing we do together. Rhodes has three on-campus dining options where students can relax, refuel, and connect with friends new and, after you've been here a while, old.
The Classroom Experience
“One of my most distinctive memories is that student-professor relationship.” ~ Mason Brown '17
The Campus Experience
“The library is absolutely beautiful and I could get my work done whenever I needed a nice place to kind of relax and work.” ~ Piyush Kumar '17
The Memphis Experience
“It was probably one of my favorite parts about Rhodes. I mean, you really can't talk about Rhodes without talking about Memphis.” ~ Piyush Kumar '17
