A Liberal Arts College in Memphis, Tennessee

Rhodes College’s location in the heart of Midtown Memphis makes it one of the few liberal arts colleges in a major metropolitan area. Memphis is the home of the blues, barbecue, Graceland, and the Grizzlies, but we’re much more than that. 

Memphis is a city of boundless creativity—a place where cultures, opportunity, and growth converge in authentic ways. The “Bluff City” is filled with unexpected fusions: global commerce and local start-ups, high culture and outdoor adventure, soul food and haute cuisine. Memphis also has a thriving tourism industry, attracts tech start-ups and entrepreneurs, and is home to some of the top medical research facilities in the country. It’s a young, thriving city and one of the top for millennial population growth.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “My teachers at Rhodes were the foundation of my success and prepared me for medical school and professional work. I firmly believe in small class sizes and the development students undergo while working closely with faculty and staff.”

    • Emma Selner ’18
  • “The most important lesson I’ve learned throughout my time at Rhodes is the importance of having malleable perceptions—not presuming our beliefs and perceptions of the world are the dominant ones.”

    • Brian Burgess ’20
  • “From the beginning, Rhodes College propelled me forward on paths I hadn’t previously thought possible. My Rhodes education and the support of the community have enabled me to earn my Law degree, serve in two federal clerkships, and begin my career as a Supreme Court Fellow.”

    • Allison Bruff ’14
  • “A big thing I learned from Rhodes that has helped me tremendously during an unexpected job search is to never reduce myself to fit into just one box. Rhodes allowed me to grow as a person and a professional in multiple areas and taught me how to think creatively when approaching difficult situations.”
