5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rollins College was #1 in best college campuses. I t think that speaks for itself

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rollins is very quaint, campus is well kept and I feel safe and secure on campus

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I got lucky as a first year, I roomed with someone I chose from over summer and we actually worked out really well together and we live in Ward 4th floor. It's the best!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus is pretty nice. Campus Security has a very strong presence on campus. There are only three crappy places to live on campus. Most of the dorms are nice. There are only 8 or 9 Fraternity/Sorority houses due to the size of our small liberal arts school. The cafeteria food is decent, but we also get off-campus meal plan money. The social atmosphere has a good mix. Everyone can find a place at Rollins where they belong. The cost for tuition is high, but it is worth the one-on-one interaction with your professors that actually know your name.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms range from spacious new rooms to old cramped ones with multiple roommates.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rollins requires students with fewer than 60 semester hours to live on campus, which means most freshmen and sophomores live in the dorms. When comparing the residence halls to the rest of Rollins, dorm life is definitely struggling. A couple of the dorms have recently been renovated, and these are the dorms students should fight for. Ward Hall and Rex Beach Hall were both redone in the last couple of years. McKean Hall is the notorious freshman party dorm, and despite the filth, it is definitely the most fun dorm and the best place to meet people. Sophomores who joined a sorority or fraternity usually live in their sorority or fraternity house, as living in a Greek house is the same cost as living in a dorm. Sophomores who choose not to live in the sorority or fraternity house have the option of living in Sutton Place Apartments. Students who live in Sutton are chosen through a lottery system, which takes class year and GPA into account. Living in Sutton is nice because you have your own kitchen and living room; however, it is very far from everything on campus. There are upcoming renovation plans for more dorms on campus and within the next five years or so, they should all be looking good as new.

Dorm life is an important part of the college experience. Most people meet their friends in the dorms and party in the dorms, as well. It is quite easy to drink in the dorm rooms with a small group of friends, but if it is loud, your RA is likely to break it up. Students who live in Sutton throw parties, but campus security is also pretty strict there, as well. Dorms are an essential part of college, and every dorm at Rollins has its pros and cons.
