MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE (June 25, 2024) — Amelia Rursch of Reynolds, Illinois, was named to Rhodes College's Spring 2024 Honor Roll.

To qualify for the Honor Roll, a student must be enrolled in at least sixteen credits of academic work and achieve a semester grade-point average of 3.85 or better. Those students who choose to take a course under the Pass/Fail option must have a minimum of twelve additional graded credits of work to be considered for this honor. Students who are enrolled in the Honors Program or independent Research and receive a grade of IP for that work will have their qualifying grade point average determined on all other graded work.
