Spring 2021 Commencement

Rhodes Commencement 2019

March 02, 2021

Thank you for your patience.  I am excited to share we are moving forward with our preparations for two in-person ceremonies on Saturday, May 15. Our hope is for each class, faculty, and families to celebrate together just as we have for 173 years.

The Shelby County Health Department guidelines are clear regarding large indoor gatherings. For the health and safety of our Rhodes community, there will not be a Baccalaureate program on Friday afternoon, May 14. In its place, special events exclusively for our graduates will take place on campus.

I hope this information will help as you begin to make travel plans. Please know we are working diligently and will have details to release soon. Check your email regularly for my updates and bookmark this page as a resource. Information regarding tickets, regalia, and announcements will be updated next week. 

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. 

Warm regards,

Kim Bennett P ’15, P ’19
Director of College Events
