Rhodes is profiled in The Princeton Review’s recently released The Best 371 Colleges for 2010. Only about 15% of America’s four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review′s flagship annual college guide. 
Included in the guide are financial aid ratings based on a scale of 60 to 99. Rhodes, which also is on Princeton′s Review’s “100 Best Value Colleges” list for 2009, received a financial aid rating of 83.

Eighty percent of Rhodes students receive some form of financial aid. In addition, the college is widely recognized for its innovative student associates program that provides on-the-job training and competitive wages for performing professional-level work.

Rhodes received an academic rating of 96. In the college profile, students wrote “A small-college feel in a big city setting means Rhodes undergrads benefit from both small and discussion-based classes that give students the opportunity to understand different opinions and the endless social, academic, and professional opportunities for students and alums afforded by an urban location.”

Other comments include: “The school is great at getting students into internships, study-abroad programs, and community service opportunities.”  “The school’s revered honor code is also highly touted.”
