Summer Send-Offs


Each summer, Rhodes parents in select cities open their homes to Summer Send-off parties, where we welcome new students and their parents into the Rhodes community. New students and families meet other Rhodes members from their area and trade advice about starting college

The events are held during the last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August in the following cities: Atlanta, Birmingham, Dallas, Houston, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, and New Orleans. Additional cities—including Austin, Mobile, San Antonio, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.—may be added if they have a minimum of 10 new students.

We welcome volunteers interested in hosting events in 2013. If you are interested in being the host or would like more information, please contact Tracy Patterson at 901-843-3856 or
