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.
