Special Programs


Throughout the academic year, we offer several visit programs that provide prospective students and parents with a thorough introduction to Rhodes and Memphis.

College Preview Day

Preview Day is designed for students who have been accepted to Rhodes for the Fall of 2014 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.   Students who have made their enrollment deposit, or paying it that day, will have the chance to have their Rhodes ID made.
