Awesome Variety – Rollins offers an exceptional amount of academic options for such a small school. Some teachers teach multiple subjects within the same department because it fits their field of choice or interests. Also, ROLLINS HAS A CRAZY AMOUNT OF LONG TERM AND SHORT TERM STUDY ABROAD OPTIONS! I just got back from the Galapagos Islands where we studied ETHICS AND ART! Two totally different things from Psychology (my major). THERE ARE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES. And now, even though I am a Communications Minor, THEY EVEN ADDED A COMMUNICATIONS MAJOR FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR! Now I even have the possibility of double majoring. International Business and Biology majors have the worst work load. Language majors can get by with a lighter amount, same with theater. Everything else is in between, but any major is going to have an exceptional amount depending on how much you want to put into it!

If you get the chance to visit Rollins college, do!

It is one of the most beautiful colleges in Florida.

There are beautiful trees, flowers and green lawns at every angle.

The spanish architecture is just breath taking, the view to lake Virginia is unexplainable,making this campus amazingly beautiful.

The library has an antique style to it, since it was built in the 40's.

The only "ugly" facility I would say would be Mckean Hall, where some of the freshman reside in. I believe those dorms are ridiculously small.

The atmosphere of Rollins is very safe and beautiful. The campus is beautiful, you can smell the flowers as you walk past them, and the sun is almost always shining. Campus security rides around campus on golf carts at all hours. It is a pretty atmosphere to be around. The negative side to the Rollins atmosphere is that it has a very uptight feel. People are extremely immature and judgmental, and you can feel it. Even if you are the nicest person ever, or even if you fit in with the other students at Rollins, you will receive death stares from students as you walk to and from class, to and from the library, in the library, to and from the gym, to and from the campus center, in the campus center, EVERYWHERE! The atmosphere is very similar to being in High School. If you are a shy, insecure person, Rollins might not be for you.
