Rollins is a small liberal arts school known for their excellent academics and athletics. As a student-athlete and rising senior, I can say that athletics has been a huge part of my Rollins experience. However, there are so many other ways students can get involved on campus whether its through Greek life or other clubs and organizations – there is something for everyone! The community at a school like Rollins was definitely something I was looking for. Lastly, when deciding between schools, Rollins’ campus was one of the biggest draws. I could not imagine a better place to spend my college years anywhere other than Winter Park!

Rollins is very strong academically, resourcefully, and in regards to the community aspect within the college. My only complaint is that I have only been here for a year and they're changing the entire housing/meal plan system to single out (almost shame) the lower socioeconomic classes. I myself am here on scholarship so this is very disheartening for me, it's almost like they're trying to force me out by making things more expensive for me. Additionally, living in the dorms kinda sucks. The washers and driers break daily, the walls are paper thin, and when one person gets sick we all do. These are just the things I can think of off the top of my head. The students here are VERY liberal, so just be prepared if you identify as conservative (I am also liberal so it doesn't affect me). However most students are understanding of different views. Also the professors are AWESOME! Well most anyway, you'll have a few unorganized and annoying ones to deal with.
Rollins is such a personal experience in more ways than just academically. You form close relationships with those in and out of your major, there is always someone there to help when things go awry, the opportunities- even in travel- are endless and you walk away from each semester feeling accomplished, excited and better equipped for the road ahead. I have loved Rollins and only wish it would stop going by so quickly!
