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.

Academics: It's a lot of work, but challenging and interesting

Academics: Everything was great and up to standards

3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are okay, you do like any other school get those that aren't always great. For example I took a class last semester and the professor never got directly to the point, was pretty annoying. Most of the work you do on your own but yet they take attendance.. Doesn't make much sense since you can simply read the power points shown in class on your own. The workload is quite a lot at Rollins.

Academics: Love the small classes! It enables you to get to know your teachers and ask for help when needed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rollins professors offer up their free time generously, always trying to help with whatever they can. Professors not only know students by name, but they also know them by their year in college, major, and plans for the future. Since the classes are so small, ranging anywhere from 10 to 25 students, courses are taught around a big dining room table. This environment creates a friendly and personal atmosphere, where students and professors feel comfortable and free to converse and learn from one another through each other’s opinions and perspectives. 

The majors offered at Rollins are limited, but for the majors that are offered, there are plenty of class options. On the other hand, creating your own major is an alternative, and plenty of students take full advantage of this privilege. The opportunities available at Rollins are endless, and the course load is challenging but rewarding. At the end of each semester, Rollins students don't just walk away with a grade, but more importantly, they walk away with experience and knowledge.

Tips to Succeed
  • Don't party every night! So many people fail out after freshman year.
  • Go to class! Even if there isn't an attendance policy, go.
  • Organize your time well.
  • Sign up for classes that really interest you.
  • Step outside of your intended major to try a class or two on something totally unfamiliar to you.
  • Try to average 17.5 hours a semester so you don't fall behind.
  • Use the library.
  • Use TJ's; it can never hurt your grade and generally helps.
Did You Know?
  • The study abroad program at Rollins is extremely popular, especially during junior year. Students can choose from a variety of exotic destinations and live either with a host family or in a partner university. The program is praised for being easy to get involved with and providing many options for study and internships.
  • Every year, Rollins offers Maymester for three weeks in the month of May so students can earn extra credit; there's also a winter intersession, for additional credit, before the second semester starts.
