To protect the health of our community and our guests, all campus visit programs will be offered virtually during Summer 2020.
Throughout the academic year, we offer several visit programs that provide prospective students and parents with a thorough introduction to Rhodes and Memphis.
Preview Day is designed for students who have been accepted to Rhodes for the fall semester and their parents. The event provides the opportunity to meet future classmates and spend a beautiful and exciting day in Memphis and on Rhodes campus meeting faculty, staff and students who are eager to share their expertise and stories. The day includes attending a mock class, residence hall tours, student and faculty interaction, hearing from Memphians about important Memphis and Rhodes connections and lunch.
The Discover Rhodes program is designed to give you a glimpse of how students live and learn at Rhodes by providing a student-led campus tour, information sessions where you will hear about academics and how to apply to Rhodes, and the chance to hear directly from Rhodes students. Please Note: This summer’s Discover Rhodes programs will take place online in order to protect the health of our community. Upon registering, you’ll receive additional information about how to join the program via Zoom.
Offered during the academic year, our Open House provides a unique opportunity for prospective students to attend sample classes, hear a panel discussion about our students’ experiences, tour campus, and meet current students.
Rhodes hosts Crossroads for admitted students. Crossroads is an admission program that celebrates the many cultural experiences of our prospective students and provides a window into what those experiences could look like at Rhodes. Attendees can expect to hear from Rhodes students, faculty, and staff regarding the intersectionality of race, religion, gender, sexuality, and more. Students who identify with, or are allies of, multicultural groups are welcome to attend. Interested students should register online starting in January.
A program designed by and for high school students who are from the greater Memphis area. Learn about the Rhodes experience from the perspective of our students who once attended local high schools. This event features faculty, staff, and parent panels for parents while students are challenged to team trivia. Even if you have visited campus before, this will be an informational and fun evening for the whole family.
Designed for Juniors and Sophomores, students can get a feel for the college experience at Rhodes. Students will learn about academics by attending a class while parents hear faculty talk about the opportunities inside and outside the classroom. A campus tour led by a current student is offered before lunch in our dining hall.
