College Raptor, an online resource that allows prospective college students and their families to discover their best college options, has selected just one Hidden Gem per state. Rhodes is Tennessee’s selected college for 2016.
According to its site: “With the second installment of our Hidden Gems series, we again are shining the spotlight on colleges across the country that are often overlooked. They may be great schools that are in your backyard or just across state lines that you’ve never heard of.”
Hidden Gems colleges must receive fewer than 5,000 applications and enroll at least 1,000 undergraduate students. From this list, the College Raptor selects the best college in each state, based on national overall rankings.
