Are you one of the many who completed their journey at Rhodes within the past 10 years by crossing over the seal in Palmer Hall, heading to Fisher Garden to receive the Rhodes degree that you worked so hard to obtain? If “Yes,” then you are considered as a Rhodes College Graduate Of the Last Decade, better known as G.O.L.D. Alumni.
As young alumni, you remember…
- The many hours spent studying your heart out.
- The many times you tried to not cross the Rhodes seal in Palmer Hall in hopes of not ruining your plans to graduate on time.
- The many connections that you made while crossing paths with other great Lynx.
- The great professors that led great thought-provoking discussions.
- The variety of events, activities and adventures that Rhodes offered on a weekly—and sometimes daily—basis!
As Rhodes College G.O.L.D. Alumni, you have continuing opportunities to have more great Rhodes experiences! G.O.L.D. Alumni can attend a plethora of community and social gatherings in our alumni chapter cities, provide career mentoring and networking opportunities to current students and alumni and increase the value of your degree by making a financial contribution to Rhodes! Get connected (or reconnected) to your alma mater, Rhodes College!
For more information about services, programs or how to get involved with our G.O.L.D. Alumni, contact Darren Thomas ’13, G.O.L.D. Coordinator.
