Publication Date: 8/12/2011
It’s that time of year when college rankings and listings are steadily being rolled out, and once again, Rhodes has fared extremely well.
The college was ranked in the top 100 on Forbes’ “America’s Top Colleges” list and included in the 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges.
In addition, Rhodes was named a “Best Southeastern College” in the Princeton Review’s 2012 edition of the Best 376 Colleges, and also ranked #15 for “Most Beautiful Campus” and #19 on the list of colleges where “Students Study the Most.”
The Princeton Review rankings are based on student surveys, and the following quotes were attributed to Rhodes students:
- “A beautiful campus located in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee, the ‘tight-knit community’ of Rhodes College offers ‘individual study in a liberal arts mold,’ which involves exposing students to ‘as many different disciplines as possible in order to gain a broader understanding of the world.”
- “Professors don′t just care about passing the tests, they want students to be able to take what they have learned and apply it to real life.”
- “The ‘small classes’ and ‘comprehensive honor code’ only help to further students’ love of the Rhodes’ classroom experience.”
