I'm a Senior here at Rhodes and I'll say that if you're looking for a small school with small classes, a relaxed Greek life, a city experience, and a service-minded student body, then look at Rhodes. I was looking for a small liberal arts college and I was excited to find Rhodes because it's rare to find a small liberal arts college set in a city the size of Rhodes (one of the 20 largest in the country).
I was surprised at the interest the faculty show in their students too. I've rarely had a professor who did not give me either their home or cell phone numbers. They don't view their teaching as a 9-5 job, which as one of their students, I appreciate.
It's not necessarily cost prohibitive either. I pay for school on my own so I can attest to the excellent financial aid office here. The average merit-based scholarship is $14,000 and the average total package (merit-based + need-based) is $32,000.
If you're close enough to be able to visit, try to come out and do an overnight to get a better feel for campus.
