Rhodes College has sought to develop a moral and honorable student body since being founded in 1848 as the Masonic College in Clarksville, TN. The rules governing student life, however, have changed, being influenced both by modifications of the College's mission and the shifting moral landscape of the country at large. Changes to the student body, such as the admission of women, have also provided impetus for rule revision.
