Located in the heart of Memphis, Rhodes College is a top-ranking liberal arts college. Rhodes is a private, four-year college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. Established in 1848, the 100-acre campus features stone Gothic architecture with 13 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The campus is wooded and newer buildings have kept with the Gothic tradition. The Princeton Review listed Rhodes as America’s 5th most beautiful college in 2013.
One of the most notable programs at Rhodes is its mock trial program, which has won four national championships. The school has placed 25 teams in the country’s top ten, and holds the record for the most consecutive national championship tournament appearances at an impressive 26 years. In all but two of those years, the team finished with at the least an Honorable Mention. Over 70 Mock Trial student participants have won All-American awards for excelling in their roles. The teams rehearse at Buckman Hall, which is home to a replica courtroom.
