If you are looking for a diverse college, Rollins is not the place for you. Rollins is more than 70 percent white and only 5 percent black. Rollins students have a stereotype of being rich, preppy, and white. However, Rollins has been trying to add more diversity to the student body during the last few years, and it has been seeking out quite a few international students in order to do so. But even the international students fit the standard Rollins stereotype. Skin color and ethnicity are not the things that will make you seem diverse at Rollins; instead, it is the amount of money you have and the status symbols you present that make you a true Rollins student. If you can't afford the lifestyle, you will stick out more than someone of a different ethnicity.
Students are accepting, for the most part, of minorities on campus, and discrimination is not an issue. However, since Rollins is such a small school, students oftentimes get cliquey in their own groups of friends. With that being said, transfer students might have a hard time fitting in and getting adjusted.
