3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are very nice, but reslife can sometimes abuse their power. Both Ward and Strong Halls are very nice, the Rex Beach facilities aren't as nice but there tends to be a strong community bond among residents and McKean is the worst option for freshmen. The greek houses tend to be nice and the Sutton Apartments are sort of outdated.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely popular and joining a fraternity or sorority is a great way to make friends and enjoy an eventful social life. Spring rush allows for freshmen to experience a semester outside of a greek organization so that they can experience the school before deciding to rush.

Athletics: Men's lacrosse is probably the most observed sport (rolltars) but a lot of people like to go to basketball, baseball, and soccer games, too. Probably the coolest aspect of Rollins Athletics is the abundance of water athletes who go here due to the proximity of Lake Virginia. Boating and wakeboarding is pretty popular.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Rollins is the best choice I could have made. The small class sizes allow for meaningful discussion and always insure that students are present and engaged. Professors are extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields and they really care about their students so it's easy to make connections with them right off the bat. The location is picturesque and nightlife (and day-life too on the weekends) is so fun. #gotars

Greek Life: Rollins revolves around Greek life. People claim to be popular if they are part of a frat or a sorority.

Overall Experience: The campus is great and teachers are very friendly. Dorms are fine and the food as well. Students at Rollins are cocky and very superficial. Even though the college is great, it is not a nice place to be around because of the materialistic, non-authentic people here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Rollins however some of the students, at least half do not have to face real world problems so they do not care. But, theven faculty is great! My biggest issue is the insanely expensive tuition.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: I barely participated in underage nightlife because I was very focused on my school work. Once I turned 21 I would go out a bit more but it wasn't my main thing to do when I was free. I do know we have a good nightlife.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties are fun too. I wasn't big on partying but when I would go out and party I would have a good time.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am challenged everyday. Workload isn't impossible but it takes a lot of free time. Professors are experts on what they teach. If you attend and pay attention to your classes, keep up with the reading, and study hard on your own time it is very possible for a student to get an A or B. You have to work hard though.

Diversity: I am part of a minority group (ethnic wise) I don't feel I'm treated any differently by peers or professors. People are mostly curious about cultural differences and like to ask me questions about it.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never been exposed to illegal drugs in this school. I started drinking after 21, I had been exposed to alcohol beforehand, but it isn't a party school at all.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Rollins has helped me grow as a student and as a person. I have learned so much and has been such a fulfilling experience. I recommend this school to anyone.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students can study anything from liberal arts to science to business. The campus career center helps it's students find jobs and internships. They bring employers and do career fairs at least once a semester, sometimes more.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: As a woman it's hard to feel safe anywhere after a certain hour and I always like to walk with someone no matter where I go and how safe it is. I must say Rollins security is great and I do feel safe the few times I don't have someone to walk with and it's night time

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.
