Student Governance

When you join the Rhodes community, you commit yourself to the ideals of both freedom and responsibility represented by the Honor Code, Social Regulations Code and the Commitment to Diversity.

Our students oversee their rules and activities through the following elected bodies:

Rhodes Student Government
Honor Council
Social Regulations Council
Publications Board
Rhodes Activities Board

These student-run institutions uphold traditions like the century-old Honor Code. Students guard the atmosphere of mutual respect and trust because they own it. This ethical commitment is a guide not just for college, but for life.

Elections for each body takes place in the spring semester and are administered by the Elections Commission. Each first-year class chooses representatives in early September. These members serve until the following spring election.
