Friday night The Pack had a “P. Troutt Outt” to for basketball’s Senior Night. The theme comes from our very own President William Troutt who’s always well dressed and noted for his snazzy bow ties. The Pack also handed out a few fake bow ties for those who didn’t have real ones to wear.
Evan our mascot Leroy the Lynx dressed up for the occasion!
Gibson’s is probably the best donut shop in Memphis. It’s about 15 minutes away from campus and half price donuts every night starting at 11 pm. It’s been a life saver on late study nights.
The source link leads to their Facebook page which is where I got the picture from. Check it out if you want to know more about Gibson’s!
jessi-car22 asked: Hi! I was accepted to Rhodes early action and I was invited to a scholar's symposium. Do you have any experience with the symposium? Also if you have any specific advice about being a freshman at Rhodes? Thanks!!
Hi! First of all, congratulations on getting accepted! I’m sorry to say I don’t have any experience with the symposium, but if it’s on Rhodes’ campus, you’ll for sure have a good time. Everyone at Rhodes is incredibly nice and welcoming when it comes to visitors.
As for advice about being a freshman at Rhodes, I’d say not to be afraid to ask your professors for help. Professors at Rhodes want you to speak with them and are always willing to accommodate you within fair boundaries. Meeting with them will really help you out in the long rung.
I’d also say to join a few clubs (but not too many) in the first semester. A lot of students worry that clubs will take up too much time, but only a few have large time commitments. Most clubs meet once a week or a few times a month, and they’re great to mix up with academics to give your mind some time to relax. They’re also a good way to meet people outside of your dorm and classes.
I know that Early Action admission letters have been sent recently. If you’re looking for a perspective of Rhodes, don’t hesitate to shoot me an ask!
This week marks the first full week of classes since the dorms opened last Sunday, and Rhodes College is getting right to business. Professors are wasting no time diving right into their course curriculum, and campus organizations are trailing right behind them in events.
The Big Diehl is going on a ski trip this weekend. Sororities and Fraternities are planning a plethora of events, and Kinney is preparing for its annual MLK Day of Service on Sunday.
It’s great to be back on campus after such a long break and have so many activities to choose from before I’ve even finished unpacking!
But RAB has helped relieve the stress with study break activities. Last night there were pancakes in the Rat along with coloring paper to drawing and games to play. Today there are massages in the Middle Ground, the perfect way to relax from a long night of studying.
