Student Life

The Division of Student Life provides resources, skills, and experiences to foster the development of the whole student in preparation for a life of learning, effective leadership, and civic engagement.

Rhodes provides endless opportunities for students to contribute, create, and lead. Whether serving on the Honor Council, organizing a community service initiative, participating in athletics or the fine arts, or bringing new ideas and energy to a student club or organization, our students define and enhance their experiences here.
Dean of Students Office
The Rhodes College Dean of Students Office supports the mission of the college by providing resources and services to students to help them integrate into the Rhodes Community. Our office is committed to helping all students meet their full potential.
We are also here to provide support for a variety of student concerns, including illness, death in the immediate family, academic challenges, and other personal emergencies.

Rhodes is deeply committed to a residential experience that builds community and strengthens our connections to one another. Living with your peers offers daily opportunities for discussion, involvement, and leadership outside the classroom.

Rhodes seeks to help students succeed in their time here through a variety of personal, professional, and academic support programs. We work to make Rhodes a supportive and caring place for you to develop socially and intellectually.
