A small, expensive liberal arts college located in the middle of Memphis, TN. Easily recognized by its beautiful matching stone buildings (a reference of the Princeton architectural style) and gorgeous landscaping. Known as "Southwestern" until 1984, it is respected for its English and Biology departments. The student population is predominately high class whites; politically, it is fairly balanced. Greek life plays a major role in the social scene, hosting several dances a year and parties every week. Drinking is also a common pastime of Rhodes students.
