Memphis - Choose 901

One of Rhodes’ greatest assets is its location in Memphis, where the area code is 901. As a result, we often refer to our city as “The 901,” and we are glad you have chosen it. What does Memphis offer our students? As one of only a few liberal arts colleges in an urban environment, Rhodes has partnered with businesses and organizations across the 901 to create amazing fellowship and internship opportunities for you. Memphis has a unique culture, steeped in music, food, the river, a vibrant creative community, and a medical center devoted to research. Make the city your own when you come to Rhodes. Below, read about some of our students who have done just that.
