New Students


Welcome to Rhodes! We are excited that you have decided to make this your home in the fall. If you have already made your deposit to attend, you may be wondering what′s next. You will soon receive an email from the Office of New Student Programs with information on how to complete your enrollment forms on your Admission Portal and how to sign up for Open Rhodes. 

Open Rhodes is our two-day summer orientation program that allows you to work with faculty advisers to develop your schedule for the fall. We offer four two-day/one-night sessions in June where you have the opportunity to spend the evening in the residence halls with your new classmates. We ask that you attend one session of Open Rhodes and they will be offered on June 18-19, 22-23, 25-26 and 29-30 this year.
