Message from the President

Dear Student,

Welcome to Rhodes State College! As a student, the decision you made to enroll in college is an investment in your future. Some students come seeking an affordable start toward a bachelor’s degree and transfer to a four-year institution. Some come for our high-quality career and technical training. Still others make their way to Rhodes State to take part in our customized training programs, developed in close partnership with countless area businesses and industry. Whatever the goal, at Rhodes you will find an academic program designed to prepare you for success.

We have a distinguished reputation among two-year colleges, and are one of the fastest growing institutions in Ohio. We place students first with a focus on every service from student advising to instruction to graduation. Rhodes has a diverse and supportive campus life conducive to sharing, appreciating and respecting a wide range of ideas, backgrounds and cultures. On the campus, you will find that student activities, athletics, and student organizations complement your classroom experiences.

Our faculty provide a personal touch, whether in small class discussions and interaction, or in online courses to accommodate busy schedules and family needs. As a student, you will want to become an active member of our College community, and get to know the faculty and staff who are here to help.

There are 77 programs, majors and certificates offered at Rhodes. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees prepare students to transfer many of the courses that you take to four-year colleges and universities in Ohio. The business and industry training at the College offers seminars and classes for individuals interested in obtaining work-related skills.

The investment you make at Rhodes will pay dividends for a lifetime. I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities available. Our mission is focused on student success and your completion. Join us and REDISCOVER RHODES!!!

Warm Regards,

Debra L. McCurdy, PhD
