Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply "Early Action"-it doesn't hurt!
  • Be involved in well-rounded extracurriculars.
  • Be very involved with community service-Rhodes was ranked the number-one "Most Service-Oriented" school by Newsweek in 2011.
  • Come visit! Rhodes (particularly Admissions) loves getting to know potential students.
  • Interview-many students feel that the interview is a deciding factor in their admission decision.
  • The obvious-a commitment to academics: solid grades, strong test scores, thoughtful essay, AP classes.
  • Show an interest in Rhodes and the community.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School

  • Bringing your car freshman year is a good idea.
  • Competition for elected positions is intense.
  • Don't be afraid to branch out and try something new.
  • Don't take a bad Lynxcard picture; it will haunt you for four years.
  • Even though Rhodes is small, it's still a pretty big party school.
  • Everyone actually has to go to class.
  • Everyone knows everything about everyone.
  • Get as much AP/IB credit as possible so you don't have to waste your time sitting through lectures on information you already know.
  • Get on the smallest meal plan available.
  • How to get around campus-at first all the buildings look exactly the same
  • Invest in a laptop.
  • Science courses are actually incredibly difficult.
  • The school can feel very small.
  • The workload is pretty heavy, especially if you do not manage your time well.

Interviews & Information Sessions
Call (901) 843-3700 or (800) 844-5969 on any weekday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time. The admissions staff interviews Monday through Friday throughout the academic year, but they are accommodating to your schedule.
Campus Tours
Rhode trip, anyone? Pick a day and come visit! Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday, and they are all led by student guides. Rhodes adamantly supports taking a tour, so the admissions staff is willing to work around your schedule! Schedule a visit online or call (800) 844-5969.
Overnight Visits
Come stay the night and see what it's like to be a Rhodes student! Overnight stays with a student host can be arranged with a two-week prior reservation with the Admissions Office. During your stay, make sure to meet with a financial aid officer, eat at the Rat or the Lair, and talk with some professors and sit in on a class or two. Important tip: go find some Rhodents to hang out with. Ask them as many questions as you can think of about college life. Students, faculty, and staff at Rhodes are extremely friendly and love to talk and show ProStuds (prospective students) around. Just call (800) 844-5969 to schedule your stay.
Did You Know?
  • Rhodes offers many campus programs and events that educate high school juniors, seniors, and their parents on the realities of pursuing a college degree. Open houses and the Rhodes summer experience program (which addresses questions concerning the admissions process and the value of a Rhodes education) are two of the best ways for prospective students and their families to get the real inside scoop on attending Rhodes.
  • Your own personal admissions counselor! Rhodes has admissions counselors that work with students from different regions of the United States. They not only are better able to help you and give advice, but they also will put you in contact with Rhodes students from your area and faculty members that can answer any questions dealing with your areas of academic interest.
