It’s no accident that Rhodes students are involved in more than 100 student organizations on campus. We intentionally seek students who are involved, have a desire to learn, and contribute to their community.
Involvement in the arts enriches one’s character and contributes to the life of the community. Our historic support of the arts is reflected in the numerous scholarships available to students majoring in the arts or pursuing an interest in arts organization management.
Communities in Conversation, the signature lecture series at Rhodes College, provides a forum for dialogue on a variety of topics in the humanities, as well as those related to current affairs. Annually, we host 8-10 keynote lectures, symposia, conferences, and film series. Each of these events offers a lineup of nationally recognized scholars and intellectuals discussing key topics in the humanities and the broader culture.
FYE is a year-long, integrative program for first-year students that is designed to ensure your success. Through participation in a weekly First Year Seminar class and a wide range of other events and activities, you will explore what it means to be a member of the Rhodes community.
The Office of Inclusion advocates for the promotion of a culturally diverse and nondiscriminatory campus community, preparing you for the pursuit of lifelong learning. We are open to assist all students regardless of race, gender, color, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and national or ethnic origin.
