Photo Gallery | Rhodes College staff, students enjoy winter scenery
It comes as no surprise that one of America's most beautiful colleges glistens in winter weather.
Rhodes College received a spot in a "Top 15" list in Forbes Magazine in 2011.
The magazine said the the Oxbridge-style quad and new library set it apart.
At Rhodes College in Memphis, campus planners didn't pave paradise to put up a parking lot. They unpaved one to create an Oxbridge-style quad and new library. The school, inspired by an English Gothic village, the Rhodes College 100-acre campus in Memphis, Tennessee belies the fact that it has only been since 1925 when it was moved from Clarksville. A junior at the time, a student named John A. Rollow brought with him a collection of seedlings which he planted. This oak allee was eventually named the Rollow Avenue of Oaks and runs from the school's North Parkway to Palmer Hall.
Yesterday, Rhodes College tweeted about how they love ice and snow on their campus.
Campus so beautiful when it snows. Let's hope it sticks! @rhodescollege— Rhodes College (@RhodesCollege) January 14, 2013
On other social media outlets such as Facebook and Instagram, students also shared their similar enthusiasm about winter weather on campus.
