Rhodes is a great asset to Memphis. I personally think it's too small, I would love for it to be a larger research university, but perhaps its intimate size is part of its attraction and quality. I can't argue too much with that.

Rhodes Thankful for Hometown - Memphis Daily News

Excerpt (hopefully not too big; if it is, I'm confident that an excision will occur):

"Last year Rhodes welcomed its largest first-year class ever. This fall’s incoming class will be its equal. Both of these classes represent the highest quality in our history in terms of academic achievement. Equally important, these two entering classes represent more than 40 states and multiple countries. In a still-struggling economy, Rhodes is proud to claim this level of academic excellence and geographic and ethnic diversity.

To what do we attribute the increased national interest in Rhodes? Our exceptional faculty, our collegiate gothic campus in Midtown, named by Forbes one of America’s most beautiful, and our long history of producing graduates who are critical thinkers and creative problem solvers are certainly key reasons. But in recent years, we have placed even greater emphasis on promoting the special opportunities that Memphis provides. The message resonates with prospective students from across the country and motivates them to attend Rhodes and immerse themselves in all aspects of the city.

Without Memphis, our students would not be able to participate in leading-edge research at renowned institutions such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Without Memphis, our students would not be able to secure international internships in partnership with FedEx. Without Memphis, our students would not be able to work alongside Mayor A C Wharton Jr. to create a city-wide service culture. Without Memphis, our students would not be able to mentor the schoolchildren at four nearby public schools and neighboring community organizations that comprise the Rhodes Learning Corridor. Without Memphis, Rhodes would not have been named Newsweek’s “Most Service Oriented College in America” for two years in a row. Without Memphis, Rhodes would not be Rhodes."

And the little ba$terds JAM OUT on weekends. I live 12 blocks away or better and can hear it riding the
breeze on a good night. Poor Pandas.
It's great to have Rhodes so close to me. Never heard of it before I moved here, but the license plates are
from freaking EVERYWHERE.
