Visiting Scholars

Since 1956, the Society′s Visiting Scholar Program has offered undergraduates the opportunity to spend time with some of America′s most distinguished scholars. This program contributes to campus intellectual life by making possible an exchange of ideas between the Visiting Scholars and the resident faculty and students. Rhodes has hosted Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholars since the program′s inaugural year.
