Rollins is courageous. 
When Florida needed a college, we founded one. We’re entrepreneurial like that. More than 130 years later, we’re still hard at work, blazing new trails and preparing a new generation of global citizens and responsible leaders to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Rollins is rigorous.
Rollins is a comprehensive liberal arts college committed to providing a transformative education in a healthy, responsive, and inclusive environment. We are dedicated to scholarship, academic achievement, creative accomplishment, cultural enrichment, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. Our graduates leave Rollins as global citizens and responsible leaders empowered to lead meaningful lives and forge productive careers.

Rollins is built on a human scale.
We’re powered by relationships, especially the partnerships between inventive, inspiring faculty and motivated, industrious students. Through this intimate and personalized learning environment, students are mentored and challenged by expert faculty every day, helping them unlock their unique potential to make the world brighter, smarter, and more enterprising.

Rollins is globally engaged.
Install water filtration systems in the Dominican Republic. Engage in community development in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Consult for France’s most innovative companies. At Rollins, you’ll make an impact around the globe. Rollins offers more than 90 study-abroad programs each year and more than 70 percent of Tars study abroad. From semester- and summer-long programs to faculty-led field studies, you’ll explore the world and test your ability to make it better.

Rollins is civic-minded.
Our faculty-led field studies, student-led Immersion programs, and initiatives in leadership and community engagement have won national recognition. Our innovative, interdisciplinary core curriculum allows students to engage with some of the world’s most pressing issues. From community engagement classes and immersive alternative breaks to a service leadership scholarship program, get ready to be an agent of change in our backyard and around the world.

Rollins is a diverse and inclusive community of learners.
Rollins fosters a diverse and inclusive campus community and celebrates the open exchange of ideas within a climate of civility and mutual respect. We view differences—from race and ethnicity to sexual orientation and political perspectives—as rich opportunities for understanding, learning, and growth.

Rollins is perfectly located.
Our idyllic residential campus is situated in the heart of Winter Park, a friendly cosmopolitan community on the edge of Orlando, one of the fastest-growing metro areas nationally and one of the most diverse, innovative, and creative cities in the U.S. As a Rollins grad, you’ll be ready to lead anywhere in the world, but thanks to Orlando’s status as one of the nation’s best cities for college grads, you won’t have far to look for opportunity.

Rollins is committed to excellence on and off the field.
Rollins knows athletics is about more than winning games. It’s about building relationships, developing character, and learning to lead. These traits help our student-athletes set the pace—in competition and in the classroom. With the highest academic success rate in the Sunshine State Conference, Rollins ranks among the nation’s best in blending academic and athletic success.
