Off-Campus Dining: BURGER FI is the best place ever and its right across the street. Many of the places around campus also deliver so it's pretty convient

College Freshman

Athletics: I've gone to a few sporting events but we don't have major sports like football so it can be really boring

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't been in the English program very long because I switched majors. But it is definitely more low maintance in comparison to the Science department.

Majors: Yes I would. I don't have to many concerns

5 College Freshman

Weather: We have a very sunny disposition making everyday pleasureable

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I occasionally hear about a person having been drunk or guys talking about how they get high but it isn't noticeable unless your doing it. I am not one of those people

Diversity: As a liberal arts school this is something highly focused on.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I still needed to take out loans.

3 College Student

Transportation: There is not many transportation opportunities for non campus events.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: The officials know boundaries but also know leniency.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: There are opportunities for drug safety but not mandatory meetings so participation is scarce.

4 College Student

Academics: It's challenging but the professors provide you all the resources you need to succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus is relatively small so housing is close to most buildings. Some dorms are very nice and some are old and not as nice.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of students who can live off campus within walking distance of school. But those houses or apartments are very expensive and not all can afford to live off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a lot of cases of underage students getting alcohol poison, and a lot of students do illegal hard core drugs. There have been cases of violence and theft. And i generally do not like walking around campus alone, ecspecially at night. Some non students will be on our campus, which worries me.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life allows students to join a group of students who they can call their family. Greek life is very involved on campus and allows students to get move involved in school and community service.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If I did not receive athletic scholarship it would be to expensive for me to come to Rollins College. They did not offer a lot of scholarships and do not have an scholarships you can apply for. I am currently working with the school to get any scholarship possible, but its a hassle and does not seem to be going anywhere.

The general consensus among students is that Rollins has a way of growing on you. Most students who are skeptical about whether they made the right choice or not by attending Rollins realize after a semester or so that they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Rollins seems like another world, and the lifestyle at Rollins is far from realistic, as it can be very hard to grow used to. Perhaps it is difficult because everyone seems to be the same and everyone appears to be rich and to wear designer clothes. After a while, students learn to love the "country club" vibe that Rollins gives off, and they appreciate the beautiful campus and beautiful people. Rollins is such a small school, and some students consider its size a good thing, while others find it one of Rollins’s flaws. For academics, its small size is ideal. Students receive much more attention from professors and far more one-on-one help than they would at a larger university. Socially, Rollins being small is a bad thing. After a year at Rollins, everyone knows everyone, and gossip is hard to escape. At a school like Rollins, students really have to watch what they do and never make a mistake because gossip spreads like wildfire.

Rollins has a good reputation in the South, and it provides students with a great education. Not only do the connections you make at Rollins help you in the future, but they last a lifetime. Rollins provides students with wonderful opportunities and experiences. If you are looking for a small liberal arts school located on the water with interesting classes and brilliant professors, then Rollins is the perfect match.
