About Us


We assist students in all phases of off-campus learning. Whether you are getting started in off-campus study, or returning to Rhodes from your time abroad, we are here for students at any point in their journey.

Additionally, after international students are admitted to Rhodes College, the Buckman Center becomes their first point of contact.  We are committed to providing accurate, timely, and well-informed information on federal regulations governing the stay of international students, scholars, faculty, and professional staff at Rhodes College.
