    RHODES COLLEGE REVIEW

    I decided to come to this college to play a sport, specifically field hockey. I chose this school because of its small size. Every student is able to have a close relationship with their professors and know them on a first name basis. The campus is also so gorgeous.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think the course curriculum is great. There are a wide variety of political science courses offered and each professor contributes insightful and unique aspects to the curriculum. I have really enjoyed taking all of my classes.
