Lynx Club for Athletics


The mission of the Lynx Club is to secure financial support for Rhodes College Athletics. The need for additional resources is crucial to run a competitive athletics program. Rhodes College competes in 10 men’s and 11 women’s varsity sports in the Southern Athletic Association. Over 510 Rhodes students, 26% of the total student population, compete at the varsity level.

In 2012-2013 six Lynx teams won or shared SAA regular season titles and two teams won SAA post-season titles. In addition to the team success 35 student athletes earned All SAA Honors, including four Conference Players of the Year. Almost half, 216, of our athletes were included in the SAA Academic Honor Roll. Our student-athletes consistently earn the highest cumulative grade point average in the conference.

Donations made to the Lynx Club contribute to the continued success of Rhodes College Athletics. The Lynx Club encourages alumni, parents of current studentathletes, parents of former student-athletes and friends to make a direct investment in the athletic program. We rely on donations and offer 7 different and distinct membership opportunities.
