4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Rollins College has been great. I really enjoy the classes I have taken and think that I have learned a lot about myself and the diverse world around me.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: One of the reasons I chose Rollins College is because of the prestige that comes with a Rollins diploma. I believe that it will be very easy for me to obtain a job out of college because of the many opportunities I will receive in my time as a student.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have heard of way to many sexual assaults and alcohol related misconduct on the Rollins College campus that needs to change. It is unacceptable to feel unsafe to walk through your own dorm or around campus alone.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I believe the dorms at Rollins College are much nicer than many other colleges that I have been too.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At Rollins College the main focus is academics and there is only a small minority of students that participate in Greek Life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a student athlete at Rollins College myself, I am very appreciative of the many privileges and updated facilities for athletic competition. The best way to describe the athletic community at Rollins is Family. All of the sports teams make a huge effort to attend as many sporting events as possible to show support for other teams on campus. Our student athletes are also widely recognized as some of the best students in division 2.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At Rollins College, the professors are very approachable and willing to help all students. The small classes sizes at Rollins are extremely helpful and made the transition from high school to college very smooth. One of my favorite experiences at Rollins was the Summer Serve program. This program invites students, faculty, alumni, and members of the community to donate their time to help local schools, churches, and homeless shelters by cleaning and revitalize the buildings. One of the organizations that we served was Grand Avenue Elementary School which is a title 1 school in Orlando, Florida. This experience allowed me to give back to my community by cleaning and painting classrooms, planting flowers, and providing a helping hand to surrounding communities. I have benefited greatly from this experience and fully intend to continue my relationship with the Summer Serve program during my time at Rollins and, after getting my education , in my community to keep it thriving and strong.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I LOVE the small class size. I thrive in smaller groups. The professors are wonderful! They are very informed in their subject area, and really do enjoy teaching. The courses are interesting and informative, and focus on our education, not simply test taking and test passing.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is crime, but mostly theft from dorms. The college cares the most about protecting students, and encourages us to report sexual abuse or other harm. They promote a safe environment.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I know people who do, and they love it! The only problem is how much it costs. I would love to live there, but I cannot afford it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I haven't gone to many games, but others love them

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Smart and devoted professors, great music program.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Nice gym, only used for the most part by athletes, has gymtimidation.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I know of at least one person who was sexually assaulted, and I am only a sophmore, and she was a freshman.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nice school, needs work on diversity and acceptance.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great career center available to students to help with resumes and internship placement.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is nice, but not worth the cost and RAs are lax.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life at Rollins is very open and friendly.

2 College Junior

Athletics: not the best school if you are interested in a sports schoool

4 College Freshman

Athletics: They are very competitive and fun.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It gives great help. Like tutoring.

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.

4 College Freshman

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

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
