Rhodes College ranks 52nd in The Princeton Review’s annual guide ranking the nation’s “Best Value Colleges.” The education services company profiles 75 schools in its Best Value Colleges, 2020 Edition, which evaluates factors including stellar academics, financial aid, and strong career prospects for graduates.

“The value of our education lies in The Rhodes Edge. We are committed to graduating students who are intellectually ready to attack the world’s most pressing problems, leadership ready to contribute to their community, and career and graduate school ready to succeed in tomorrow’s economy,” President Marjorie Hass says.

Rhodes alumni consistently report long-term benefits, life-long employability, and career advancement as a result of their education. The Rhodes experience combines the best of the classroom and opportunities through internships, service, research in Memphis and far beyond, which also gives Rhodes students an advantage in applying to graduate and professional programs.

“Rhodes students have the advantage of a rigorous academic experience with world-class scholars dedicated to their intellectual growth.  They do this on a beautiful residential campus, among other students from all over the country and the world, on a campus in the heart one of America’s most interesting cities,” Vice President of Enrollment & Communications J. Carey Thompson says. 

In the Rhodes profile provided in the Best Value Colleges, 2020 Edition, editors note:

Students who put in the work can expect to succeed: “Most people here work hard and see it academically pay off.” The school’s “very dedicated professors” “really care about their students and make an effort to get to know us and help us succeed.”

One student proudly explains that “Rhodes offers a close, personalized environment where teachers and faculty are not just willing, but enthusiastic to help you find your unique path to achievement.” 

According to The Princeton Review, the list is based on, “a combination of institutional and student survey data, including academic rigor, affordability, and career outcomes for graduates, among others.”
