Modus Vivendi

Modus Vivendi is the peer-reviewed student journal of international studies at Rhodes College. Published under the auspices of the Sigma Iota Rho honor society, the editorial staff of the journal selects 5-7 articles a year among those submitted anonymously by students. All students are welcome to submit—selection is not limited to IS majors or students enrolled in IS courses. Modus Vivendi has been a tradition in the department since 1995.

Sigma Iota Rho

The Rhodes College Theta chapter of Sigma Iota Rho, the International Studies Honor Society, promotes and rewards scholarship among undergraduate students of international studies. The Greek letter Sigma (S) stands for "synesi," meaning Prudence; Iota (I) represents "ideodoi" meaning Ideals; and Rho (R) stands for "romi," meaning Power. The founders felt these words embody important values in the field of international studies.

SIR eligibility depends on:

Declaration of an IS major or an interdisciplinary major involving international studies
