“I should tell you I think you’d be an extraordinary writer/journalist. You have cultural comprehensiveness which is rather rare in today’s world, as well as a gift for lyricism, a dogged determination and a refreshingly open-minded intellect. Those qualities are indispensable in a writer. (As you might have deduced, I’m rather prejudiced in favor of the literary arts; all my heroes are writers.) I’d love to see you in the journalism program, as a minor or major – but you might also want to consider creative writing. I think you can compete, pretty much, on any word terrain. Just one man’s opinion. Finally, since I’m in an advice-dispensing kind of mood this morning, let me just add this reminder (because I know you know this already): A person of your intellectual gifts can easily coast, setting average goals and ticking them off with relative ease. Beware the temptation to settle. – J. Broderick, Creative Writing Professor


"Trent is a professional mentor and helps to guide in good business practice and decision-making." — Asia Bond, Former Student


"Trent Rhodes and I studied together in the Coaching for Transformation 2011 Cohort. We came together on a regular basis over a nine month period putting into practice the principles and skills we were learning. We have been in touch at different times since then. Trent impressed me with his transparency and integrity. Over the months it was obvious Trent's character was disciplined by his vision to find or help create a community of individuals to help evolve consciousness. I consistently found Trent's participation valuable as it helped me realign with my own life mission. Trent stood out as an individual in the group with outstanding life coaching skills and an open heart to meet everyone where they were at. Trent has many other attributes including but not limited to: articulate speaker, excellent physically fitness and original thinking. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or references. Sincerely Lawrence Carroll" — Lawrence Carroll, Student, Coaching for Transformation

“As an administrator, I am constantly bombarded with Black men on campus who constantly portray a sub-par image for themselves. I try to provide an example for them to follow but often it is more helpful if one of their peers is that example. I wish I could take you with me and show your style, intelligence and sophistication to these men. I’m sure they would step their game up. I admire your dedication. We need more men like you in our colleges and our fraternities (shameless plug!)"  - PTO


"A superhuman masters his flaws so perfectly that people thinks he is perfect. Helping others is one of his priorities even if it costs only an advice. Being careless is not an option. He has many skills (or should I say powers), which attract a lot of people, and may cause jealousy or even hatred among others. He aims for what appears impossible for most people. However, just as any Human he can’t please everyone, has a heart and has pretty much experienced a lot of struggle as much as success. He has needs and desires; He loves, laugh, fears, hurts just like any other human. It’s his capacity of overcoming his feelings and also his strength of staying positive, having that contagious enthusiasm of living, beside, what’s going on in his own life, and still have time to care for others that makes him superhuman.

Google definition: having or showing exceptional ability or powers." - Christina

Cheerful, polite, honest, and team focused are some of the terms that describe him; I recommend him without reservation." — Tom Schmidt, Campus College Chairman


"My working relationship with Trent Rhodes was brief, but no less enlightening for that. During the time we worked together, I saw him devote considerable time and resources to our students at the University of Phoenix. I was equally impressed that, in an industry that could be as competitive as for- profit higher education, he was just as willing to devote himself to his colleagues' well-being and personal development. In the time since we've worked together, I've gotten to see another side of Trent, and have come to understand where his mindset comes from. He has devoted himself to learning -- formally and informally -- with single-minded enthusiasm that he's more than willing to share with colleagues, friends, and strangers alike. His kindness, innate curiosity, helpful nature, and methodical approach to problems both individual and organizational can only be to your benefit. Trent is the kind of person who strengthens the team not only by his own contributions, but by bringing out the best in his collaborators. That, to my mind, is not something to be taken for granted. Sincerely, Paul Bogan The First 10,000 Writer/Editor/Photographer"
