  • 76 of students live on campus
  • Freshman class of 2008 largest in school history

The Rhodes Vision
  • Spring 2003
  • Student InspirationTo provide a residential
    place of learning that inspires integrity and
    high achievement through its beauty, its emphasis
    on values, its Presbyterian history, and its
    heritage as a leader in the liberal arts and
    sciences.
  • Improved facilities (Barrett Library, Briggs
    Student Center)
  • Expanded recreational opportunities (club sports,
    intramurals)
  • Higher quality of life (dining services, dorm
    rooms)

A Growing CampusIncreased Student Demand for
Basic Services
  • Insufficient parking
  • Increased parking fines
  • Students increasingly living off-campus (Woodmont
    Towers)
