Rhodes Is a Top 25 College in the South, According to Forbes

Forbes released its annual top college list July 6, and Rhodes made the “Top 25 Colleges in the South 2016.” Rhodes also is listed in the top 100 out of the 660 undergraduate institutions in the nation that were ranked. 

According to Forbes that partnered with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity in Washington D.C., “Higher ed in transition is the theme of the 2016 Top Colleges ranking. What sets our calculation of the best 660 U.S. colleges and universities apart is our firm belief in ROI. We look at factors that directly concern students (and their families): Are current undergrads satisfied? Is it likely I’ll graduate on time or incur a ton of student debt? Will I get a good job and be a leader in my chosen profession?”

Five categories were used to determine the rankings—post-graduate success, student debt, student satisfaction, graduation rate, and academic success. The Rhodes experience combines the best of the classroom and the real world through internships, service, research and other opportunities in Memphis and far beyond. Learn more.
