    rollins has some of the greatest food for a college campus in my opinion. our dining hall was rated one of the best dining options in winter park. and if you aren't feeling the cafeteria we have a few cafes with other options as well.

    dining selections are diverse and the food is usually very good. the main dining facility- skillman hall- has multiple stations to choose from and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. other on campus dining options include dave's boathouse- a pub beneath skillman hall open for late-night dining as well as during the day, cornell cafe- a popular lunch option in an academic building with chipotle-style wraps and bowls, busch cafe- a small cafe in the science building serving starbucks, bagels, etc., bookmark cafe in the library serving similar things to busch, and a wrap shop next to the bookstore.

    the food is amazing and organic! they often use local farmers and there is a farmer's market nearby. it is very comfortable as well. you can eat pretty much anywhere on campus. if you don't want to eat on campus, there are several restaurants right next to school buildings.

    The food here is phenomenal! Ranging from filet mignon to heaping plates of pepper steak, rice, and steak fries large enough for two people, they really do spoil you at the dining hall. There'Â?Â?s several stations that serve different foods for each meal every day, so you get a lot of variety and you can sometimes watch the chefs make your food in front of you. They're open to your specifications and their dishes are fantastic. If the meals of the day and the soup/salad/dessert bar don't interest you, there'Â?Â?s a convenience store downstairs where you can purchase packaged/frozen foods or have a sub made in front of you. If THAT'S not what you're looking for either, there's a mock-Chipotle on campus and several places that sell miscellaneous snacks and beverages. If nothing on campus that day is appealing, you can walk directly across campus to Park Avenue and go to any number of restaurants, including Panera, Park Ave Pizza, and BurgerFi. There's lots of fantastic food options on campus and off, so you'Â?Â?ll never go hungry.

    Students need to purchase full meal plans as freshmen, but have lots of choices to choose from.

    Rollins dining services puts a real effort into supplying students with whatever their dietary needs require. No matter if you are vegan, vegetarian or even on a see food diet, the school will provide options that fit the students need.

    The food here is delicious and would have gotten 5 stars if the weekend menu weren't the same for both days every week.

    There is only one option for the meal plan so hopefully you like to eat. The main dining hall has interesting, different options each evening however, there are other eating locations on campus in addition to Dominos and Park Avenue Pizza delivering to campus using your meal plan money.

    I LOVE the food at Rollins. There's tons of options and I never feel like I have to resort to unhealthy options because there's nothing else I want to eat. Also, if you don't feel like dining on campus, there's Park Ave right off of campus with tons of great dining options.

    greek life is definitely prominent on campus. if you are interested, it is a great way to meet new people. but if you aren't, many students are non-affiliated as well.

    almost half of students are involved in greek life. there are numerous fraternities and sororities to choose from, including some unique to rollins.

    I am not personally a member of Greek life (yet), but I've heard that it's great and the people I've met who are involved have been really friendly. Students are not allowed to pledge until the spring of their freshman year, because the college wants students to get involved and not feel pressure or isolation by not being a part of Greek life immediately. There's also a strict no-hazing policy, so there's nothing to be afraid of. Although movies might give you the impression that Greek life is shallow and boring, it'Â?Â?s really anything but! The groups are dedicated and passionate, performing community service and adopting organizations (like Girl Scouts). Greek life isn't an overwhelming or unsavory presence at all and you won't feel shunned if you'Â?Â?re not a part of it. The people are open-minded and sweet (as with any other club) and they'Â?Â?ll be just as happy to befriend you as they are with their brothers and sisters.

    Rush is in the spring of Freshmen year, therefore you can move in sorority/fraternity house the following year.

    Greek life at Rollins is extremely inclusive, does NOT haze (do not believe everything you hear), and is very welcoming to the overall college community. They host a variety of events, parties, service events, and overall are very campus and service oriented.

    While I'm not part of Greek life, I do know a bit about it. Rush isn't done until the spring semester and there's no hazing. You can still have a social life if you don't join a sorority or fraternity, and there's presence on campus isn't obnoxious like at some other schools I've visited.

    I personally am not a member of a sorority, but many of my friends are. I don't know much in this area, but one thing I can say is that typical �snobby� sorority/fraternity attitude does not exist at this school. Everyone involved in Greek life that I have met so far has been truly genuine and just like anyone else on campus. I really like how Rollins has students wait until the second semester of their freshman year to rush, in order to allow students the opportunity to see where they fit in before they rush into anything.
