The Discover Rhodes program is designed to give you a glimpse of  how students live and learn at Rhodes by providing a student led campus tour, information sessions where you will hear about academics and how to apply to Rhodes, and the chance to hear directly from Rhodes students.

Open Houses
Offered during the academic year, our Open House provides a unique opportunity for prospective students to attend sample classes, hear a panel discussion about our students’ experiences, tour campus, and meet current students.

Cross Roads
On February 24-25 and April 12-13 Rhodes will host Cross Roads for admitted students. Cross Roads is an admission program that celebrates the many cultural experiences of our prospective students and provides a window into what those experiences could look like at Rhodes. Attendees can expect to hear from Rhodes students, faculty, and staff regarding the intersectionality of race, religion, gender, sexuality, and more.  Students who identify with, or are allies of, multicultural groups are welcome to attend. Interested students should register online in starting in January.
