  • You have no idea there are so different and beautiful landscapes in a city so close to Orlando. Is about 30 minutes away and is another world. A typical rich American city. Worth visiting. Well cared for squares, train station, restaurants.

  • I highly recommend the evening program for adults who work during the day. Loved attending both the Environmental Studies and English departments at the Hamilton Holt School. I also received a surprise email one morning with an opportunity to see Sir Paul McCartney on campus for a free special event! Professors are helpful and go above and beyond to make the experience personal. You are not a number at Rollins. Beautiful campus with a wonderful library, and an all around great place to study, especially if you're returning to school as a non-traditional student. No crowded sidewalks or traffic jams on campus either. Campus is so close to the Sun rail station that you can walk and ride, plus there are dozens of restaurants and places to chill along Park Avenue.
  • Gorgeous campus, with a very liberal arts feel. Known for their business school, a lot of students can be snobby here. Not to mention the exorbitant tuition. However, for tourists, it's a nice place to walk around!
  • I love everything about Rollins except the cost! Haha but on a serious note the campus is beautiful, the staff is on average extremely helpful, and professors highly qualified. Special shout out to Dr. Taylor in the Economics Department and Celia Wood in Student Records, you both make Rollins proud and have helped me tremendously throughout my time here, thanks! Love this school.
  • A hidden gem. The East Mediterranean architecture displayed throughout the campus is very pretty. The guided tour was informative and gave you a good feel for the school as well as a good look at most of the buildings you would be spending time in. The Bush Science Center was very impressive including modern and well lit classrooms as well as open study space for students to work. There is also a nice cafe where you can grab a bite to eat before class. I met several teachers, coaches and academic advisors and was excited to see that they were all top notch. The environment and overall vibe of the campus was excellent and I did not feel like it was too small. I cant wait to attend next year! Go Tars! Pros: Large endowment Education & Academics Top notch Disabilities Services if that applies to you Availability of practical experiences (abroad, internships, special connections, etc) Great teachers and staff whose goal is to have you be successful Beautiful campus on Lake Virginia Alumni involvement Great classroom size (avg. 17) People are friendly Winter Park and Park Ave. Food (for those who are especially high maintenance there is a build your own sushi bar, fresh fruit smoothies, as well as many other good choices in town) Great coaches and athletics Cons: Tuition (people say its worth it considering what all your getting) (apply to FAFSA and merit based scholarships) No football team (not really a con for me but some people will be disappointed) You have to apply for parking permits (apparently they make exceptions if you can come up with a good reason you need your car "medical reasons;)")
  • I worked for the Rollins Bookstore from 1995 to 1997. I was an employee of Follett, not Rollins. I wish the faculty and administration would have treated us better. All I wanted was a job.
