Rhodes Once Again Profiled in Colleges That Change Lives
Publication Date: 8/29/2012
The 4th edition of the respected reference book Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think about College (Penguin) hit bookstore shelves this week and Rhodes is again among the 40 colleges profiled. According to publishers, the featured colleges each successfully develop potential, values, initiative and risk-taking in a wide range of students.
The Rhodes profile includes the following description: “The real magic happens inside the stone buildings. With an average class size of 13 students, and more than 97 percent of professors holding terminal degrees in their fields, Rhodes is a community of learners – much thanks to the faculty, who share a vision of themselves as mentors, teachers and encouragers.”
Former New York Times education reporter Loren Pope first published Colleges That Change Lives in 1996. Rhodes College has been among the schools selected for each edition of the book. Pope died in 2008. The latest edition was revised by Hilary Masell Oswald, who conducted all new school tours and in-depth interviews to create a more current and comprehensive work.
