Academic Advising


Set your sights high,

                          and we’ll help you get there.


As academic advisers, Rhodes faculty are not only great teachers but mentors who guide students to achieve individual academic and professional goals. Students become independent, self-motivated learners who take responsibility for fulfilling degree requirements. The Rhodes curriculum places students in an active role by encouraging interdisciplinary study and a wide variety of choices for satisfying requirements.

We offer targeted advice for students considering health professions.

About one-fifth of our student body is investigating careers in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, dentistry and other health industries. Rhodes recognizes the importance of a single source of information for the often complicated process of applying to medical school and other programs. The Director of Health Advising, along with a committee of faculty, helps interested students gain the strong undergraduate coursework, research and service experience that get Rhodes graduates accepted to medical school at twice the national average.
