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.

Health & Safety: There is some theft on campus, like with any school, especially so close to a major city. However, it's nothing major to the point where I feel safe leaving my computer sit for a few minutes at the library etc. I feel comfortable being alone on campus at night and have never had an issue with campus safety. As long as you aren't throwing up drunk or belligerent there's no issue and they will give you rides to where ever.

Students almost always feel safe and secure while at Rollins. Winter Park is a very friendly town with very few instances of crime. Everywhere students turn, they can spot a Campus Safety officer while on campus. Campus Safety drives around throughout the day and night on golf carts, and they are just a phone call away if students have any problems whatsoever. Even if students feel uncomfortable walking home alone at night, they can simply call Campus Safety and be sent someone immediately to give them a safe ride home. Rollins is filled with call-boxes for emergency situations. When rare emergency situations occur, campus-wide emails and/or text messages are sent on to the student body warning them of the situation.

Every now and then, there are cases involving theft, but most theft that occurs is from students feeling too comfortable and failing to lock their doors, giving people the opportunity to come in and steal laptops and jewelry. The dorms are well secured, and students need a special card to swipe in and out of their building and rooms. Rollins is a very safe campus, but just like anywhere else, students need to watch out for their belongings and be smart about decisions they make.
