RSG represents the interests of Rhodes students to the rest of the campus – faculty, staff, trustees, alumni, and friends of the college. Student government is a deliberative and consultative body that strives to shape the college by ensuring an environment that nurtures physical, social, spiritual, and intellectual development. RSG protects the rights of students and fosters an environment which stimulates students to take active roles in the college community. The Structure of RSG is made up of the Student Senate, which consists of five representatives elected from each class in addition to other elected and appointed officials. The semi-autonomous body of Allocations Board meets at bi-weekly throughout the year.
