Rhodes College is featured in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2021, which includes profiles of more than 300 of the “best and most interesting” colleges in the country. Rhodes also is recognized for strong programs in economics, English, international studies, history, chemistry, business, biology, and psychology.
The Rhodes experience combines rigorous academics with internship, fellowship, and service opportunities in Memphis and far beyond. It is one of a very few prominent, nationally ranked liberal arts colleges located in a major metropolitan area, and it has strong partnerships with local organizations ranging from world-class hospitals to major organizations such as FedEx. Students learn in small classes and work closely with professor-mentors on research, often co-authoring publications and presenting their work at national conferences. Students at Rhodes learn to tackle the world’s most pressing problems and are equipped as leaders, ready to shape and serve their communities.
Edited by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the annual Fiske Guide to Colleges delivers an insider’s look at what it’s really like to be a student at schools in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Ireland.
