Never one to turn down an opportunity, Chrystal relocated to Memphis from Central Virginia. A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in political science, Chrystal brings a wealth of personal college experience. A four-sport athlete, Army ROTC cadet, summer abroad participant, and a two-time transfer student, she has found that as she enters into her third year in Admissions she is able to capitalize on her own experience to assist students realize the benefits of a private, liberal arts college. “The beauty of a college such as Rhodes is that they have a commitment to developing well-rounded people that are able to enter the world confidently knowing that their Rhodes experience has prepared them for whatever comes next.” When Chrystal isn’t travelling on behalf of Rhodes, she enjoys getting out and about in the city, going to athletic events, riding her bike, and enjoying the local food and music scene.
