Religious Life & Community Service

Our emphasis on community service and spiritual growth springs from our historic affiliation with the Presbyterian Church. While our students come from many faith traditions, they share a passion for making this world a better place for all. More than 80% of Rhodes students actively participate in our numerous service programs and religious organizations. In both 2010 and 2011, Rhodes College was ranked #1 in Newsweek′s "Most Service-Oriented Schools" list.  

The Bonner Center for Faith and Service serves as a gateway to many religious and service opportunities including:

  • The Kinney Program, which places students with about 100 area non-profit organizations

  • The longest running student-led soup kitchen, Souper Contact
  • Alternative break service trips
  • A diverse range of Religious Student Organizations
  • Inter-faith programs

The Center also provides mentoring for informed and thoughtful community leaders through programs like:
