Social and Residential Life
Institute students experience life on campus as if they were Rhodes undergraduates, taking advantage of both the beautiful gothic architecture and state of the art academic and recreational facilities, including tennis and racquetball courts, basketball courts, a weight and exercise room, and a swimming pool. Students take their classes in Palmer and Clough Halls, the central academic buildings on campus, eat meals in the refectory, and live with roommates in dormitories separated by gender. Select Rhodes undergraduates serve as Resident Assistants who supervise, live and dine with the students. On the weekends and after daily activities, students come together in social settings for relaxation and friendship. Favorite annual events include trips to Memphis landmarks, Open Mike Night, and the Friday Night Dance.
