    Rollins college is right outside of Orlando, so you can take advantage of the theme parks and night life that surround it. It is also about 30-45 minutes from any beach. If you cannot leave campus, its fine because the school is also right next to a lake where students can hang out. There is also a pool on campus for student use. Last but not least, the main street that runs into the school is Park Ave. This is basically the Rodeo Drive of Florida, filled with shops and fun things to see.

    There are plenty of activities on and off campus for students here. The college is located near the famed Disney, Sea World, and Universal Studio theme parks. Right off of campus is Park Avenue, where students can walk up and down and enjoy the cafés, shops, park, art museum, etc. Go a little farther and you will find Winter Park Village, a movie theater /restaurant/ shopping center complex. On campus, students can waterski, swim, sail boats, canoe, go to the gym, enjoy the lakeside walking trail, play sports on Mills Lawn, attend any of the many visitor lectures, see plays and improv shows, attend sporting events, go to the art museum, or see any of the various Music Department events (orchestra, choir, etc.)

    There is so much for students to do on campus because different student organizations host events almost on a daily basis (usually notified through Facebook or the daily email). In addition, Park Avenue is wonderful to walk around and Winter Park Village is about a mile up the road (there is a complementary shuttle that runs on Friday evenings to and from the WPV). Also, there is something to do downtown if that is what excites you, Jay Gatsby and Mitch Buchannon are the wonderful Rollins (anonymous students) party planners.

    It's fun to attend plays and other events on campus. When there's not much going on, however, there's plenty to do in the area. Because Winter Park is basically in Orlando's backyard, there are tons of places to go within a reasonable driving distance.

    Across the strew from the campus is Park Ave. It is lined with excellent shops and restaurants. The campus is also 15 min from downtown Orlando and 30 min from Disney World.

    Aside from Rollins' prominent party scene, there are many other places to have fun around campus. Dave's Down-under offers pool, multiple large, flat-screen TVs, and lots of comfy couches for sitting around chatting with friends. All the dorms on campus have multiple �pods� or living areas that include flat-screen TVs and tables for studying. There is a huge temperature-controlled pool by the lake with a DJ on duty most of the time. Mills' Lawn offers a place to play soccer, quidditch, lacrosse, or even just to take a nap or have a picnic in the shade. There are multiple docks on the edge of the lake, where students like to relax and enjoy the view. If you want to get in the water, you can rent a canoe from the campus boathouse for just over $20. If you're looking for more threatrical experiences, there are RIP (Rollins Improv Players) shows at the Fred Stone Theatre, and various plays at the historic Annie Russell Theatre. Rollins also has two tennis courts and a soccer field on campus, as well as a bike rental program. Off campus, there is so much to do, but most popular is the well-known Park Avenue, which connects to campus and features many restaurants and shops for a day of relaxing wandering and exploring. No matter what your interests are, Rollins has something fun for everyone.

    That depends on what type of fun you like. If you are more of a night life kind of person, and is under 21, then downtown Orlando is the place to go. Of course, if you have a car, you can always come to Downtown Disney as well, which can be a very fun night away from campus with a group of friends. If you are over 21, then city walk has some amazing clubs, but they can be a bit expensive which might not be a problem for some Rollins kids. If you are a day time kind of person, Orlando has lots of entertainment options, and of course, the theme parks are the main ones. Rollins students qualify to pay annual passes as Florida residents, all you have to do is open an account at Bank of America with your Rollins address, and you are all set for the discounts. Florida Mall and the outlets are also great options for hanging out with friends.

    Located in Central florida, hence you have the advantages of the theme parks. Rollins has a discounted tickets program that one can buy of instead of paying ticket office prices. Downtown Orlando is great for those who enjoy the night life as well as athletics. The Amway arena caters to the Orlando Magic, Raptors and concert venues.
