3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's a small campus so you see the same people a lot, but that being said, there are still over 2,000 people.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Rhodes College is a private school that is predominantly white. Being a black student and having come from a very diverse high school this atmosphere is foreign to me. I have undoubtedly befriended very kind and authentic girls but the initial contact is always an uncertain one.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Alot of attractive, and kind students. Everyone is so loving and respectful to one another.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The majority of the guys and girls come from upper-middle to upper class families. Most people don't really brag/show off their money, but I've personally encountered some who like to. Everyone is super nice and friendly and easy to talk to. When I visited the school and got lost, I asked a rando for help and she was super helpful and kind, which was something that I liked about Rhodes when I applied. Also, Rhodes is full of attractive guys and girls, but a lot of the guys are not looking for relationships, so be aware of that if you are.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There is a "look" to the students here. Guys wear button downs or polos, khakis with the sailboat/loafers, and they have the sunglasses with the straps around their necks. Girls = sundresses, or tshirts and the nike shorts when they work out. Of course not everyone dress this way, but the Greek students in particular do. There are FAR more women than men, and since the school's small, you'll know, or at least, see the same people daily.

One of the greatest things about Rhodes is that you can find a guy or girl who is both attractive and smart. The entire student body isn't drop-dead gorgeous, but there are tons of cute people walking around. That becomes most apparent during the spring when the warm Southern weather brings everyone outside. Girls complain that it takes a little too long for the guys to mature, and guys complain that the girls are a little too snobby, but that's the case at almost any college. As students get older, the "party" mentality of freshman and sophomore years starts to wear off, and it is easier to find someone you have a true connection with. All styles and looks are represented, from preppy to artsy to near-crazy, and in the end, there will be someone for everyone. You can make some of the greatest friends, especially if you keep an open mind.

Aside from being nice to look at, Rhodes students are typically genuine, intelligent, good-hearted people. While arrogance sometimes shows itself, the good in the student body tends to outweigh the bad. There's also an unbalanced girl-to-guy ratio, giving girls fewer guys to choose from. Those who are tired of their Rhodes dating options often decide—with success—to explore the Memphis community and the other colleges in the area.

Social Scene
Rhodes makes it so easy to start up a conversation with someone new. Chances are, you'll be able to at least recognize a good portion of the student body after only a semester, and if you don't know someone, one of your friends will. Everyone mixes-regardless of major, Greek affiliation, and social background. Partially thanks to traditional Southern hospitality, it's typical to see students holding doors open for one another and smiling at those they pass on their way to class. Still, since Rhodes is so small, many nickname the place "Rhodes High School" because of the quickly-formed and seemingly clique-ish groups that are created. But almost all students are friendly and willing to interact with others outside of their circles; it's just a matter of taking the initiative and pursuing a change, something that happens more after freshman year.
Hookups or Relationships?
Rhodes has a good mix of hookups and relationships. It is such a small campus that those who are looking for casual hookups have to deal with most of the school hearing about it, but many get over that and continue on with it. If you prefer relationships, don't worry because they aren't uncommon, either. It's kind of surprising how many students start dating freshman year and stay together throughout their time at Rhodes, and it's easy to pick out the couples in serious relationships. Needless to say, you can basically do whichever one you want. There's even the option to explore the dating scene at the universities surrounding Rhodes, which many students do.
Dress Code
Rhodes does lean a little toward the preppy side, but the student body in general has a wide range of styles. What you wear doesn't have much of an impact on who you're friends with. Some students like dressing up for classes, others prefer the sweatpants and T-shirt look, and both are perfectly OK. The nicer clothes get brought out for weekend nights and tailgating, but by Sunday afternoon, it's most likely back to the Nike shorts. Wearing something too out of the norm might get you a few weird looks, but there's no pressure to constantly look perfectly presentable and decked out in the latest fashions-unless, of course, that's how you want to dress!
