Rhodes is listed in the 2017 edition of The Princeton Review’s Colleges That Pay You Back, released today. The guide includes 200 schools that the education services company considers the nation's best for academics, affordability/financial aid, and for getting their graduates out the door to satisfying and rewarding careers.
The schools also were ranked in certain individual categories, and Rhodes is No. 16 in the “Top 25 Schools for Internship Opportunities.”
The Princeton Review collected data covering academics, cost, financial aid, graduation rates, student debt, and more from its 2015-16 surveys of administrators and students at the schools. It also factored in data from PayScale from their online compensation survey on starting and mid-career salaries of alumni of the schools.
“College is a major financial investment, and we want to help students and their families get the biggest return on that investment,” says Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “The colleges we have identified offer superb value; not only will students get a great education, but students benefit from generous financial aid, extraordinary career services programs, alumni connections and career opportunities like internships that will help students find jobs when they graduate.”
Rhodes works with Fortune 500 companies, international employers, small businesses, government agencies, and non-profits to place interns and recruits. About 75 percent of Rhodes students participate in internships before they graduate. There also are opportunities for paid internships and on-campus internships through the Rhodes Students Associate Program.
