Weisenheist is mistaken. Rhodes and CBU would not be large players in terms of numbers of students, but they have excellent reputations. University of Memphis is excellent in some areas, quite poor in others. Some excellent graduate programs and a rising law school with new facilities.

One school I just realized that was left out. Memphis has a diverse choice of colleges in the region to choose from.

LeMoyne-Owen College is a fully accredited, four-year private historically black college located in Memphis, Tennessee, affiliated with the United Church of Christ. It was founded in 1862 to provide freedmen an education.
The college sponsors athletic teams that participate in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), a Division II conference of the NCAA.
LeMoyne-Owen College was formed through the 1968 merger of LeMoyne College and Owen College, both private, historically black, church-affiliated colleges.[1]
LeMoyne Normal and Commercial School traces its history to 1862 when the American Missionary Association (AMA) sent Lucinda Humphrey to open an elementary school at Camp Shiloh for freedmen and escaped slaves.
This was one of more than ten schools founded by the AMA, an integrated organization led by black and white Congregational and Presbyterian ministers.
This was soon after the occupation of Memphis by Federal troops during the Civil War. First known as Lincoln Chapel, the school relocated to Memphis in 1863. In 1866 it was destroyed during race riots that followed the withdrawal of federal troops. The school was rebuilt and in 1867 it reopened with 150 students and six teachers.
In 1870, Francis Julius LeMoyne (1798-1879), a Washington, Pennsylvania doctor, donated $20,000 to the American Missionary Association to build an elementary and secondary school for prospective teachers. LeMoyne, who was a notable abolitionist, traveled from his Pennsylvania home to visit the new school. He donated a clock for the school's tower. The Memphis yellow fever epidemic started in 1873 and took a toll on many school personnel.
Under the leadership of the third principal, Andrew J. Steele, the institution experienced three decades of growth and development.[2]
In 1914 the school moved from Orleans Street to its present site on Walker Avenue. Steele Hall, the first building on the new campus, was erected that same year. LeMoyne became a junior college in 1924 and then a four-year college in 1930. The LeMoyne College was chartered by the State of Tennessee just four years later.
Owen College traces its history as a junior college to 1947, when the Tennessee Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention bought property on Vance Avenue. S. A. Owen Junior College opened at that location in 195654321.

I certainly did not finish from either school......lol
You don't think there is a place in the world for small colleges or what?? Why should Rhodes or CBU try to be something they are not (i.e. a large/huge research institution)? Some students want to attend small traditioned schools with low student teacher ratios and a small sense of community.
