Information for Students


Rhodes physics majors are vibrant, involved, motivated, hard-working men and women. We count many student-athletes among our majors, as well as students involved in music, community service, and a wide variety of other extra-curricular activities. Over the past eight years, 30% of our majors have been female (which is above the national average of 22%). The student experience in the physics department at Rhodes is one that imparts fundamental knowledge of physics, encourages creativity in the application of physics through research, and provides for the transformation from student of physics to physicist.
