What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
When i started attending this college it was so surreal, everything about his school was perfect. The campus was beautiful, the professors amazing and my peers pretty awesome. The classes are small and have been more focused on the individual students unlike state college.
Justin from Winter Park, FL
I feel I made a great choice in picking Rollins College. I'm treated as a person, not a number, and amazing one-on-one interactions with professors. I'm proud to be a Tar (even though most people have to Google what a Tar is : )
Lauren from Rome, GA

Rollins has provided me with the support that I need to be successful.

when i stepped on campus for the first time, i knew it was my dream school. rollins college is the perfect atmosphere for a college student. with the stress that comes from college academics, it's refreshing to have such a beautiful campus and town to enjoy when you need a study break.
samantha from largo, fl
rollins is an inclusive and active campus. there are always activities going on that bring students together and create a great sense of community. academics are very important and professors really care about students as individuals and creating a healthy and inspiring learning environment.
christina from sanford, fl
the professors are the best in the business because some of them own companies and bring their real work experience into the class room. the professors have many years of experience in their field before coming to rollins. the assignments are real world assignments preparing you for life after college.
stephanie from orlando, fl
Rollins isn'Â?Â?t just a college, it'Â?Â?s a family! Not only does Rollins help you build an amazing resume and guide you towards a fantastic career, it also gives you a beautiful campus, tons of fun events, and a community of people who are honestly excited to help you succeed in life. You are an important individual, not a number, and (as long as you work and play in good moderation), you'll love just about every minute at Rollins.
Happy Student
Beautiful, tree-covered campus on Lake Virginia. It's located in Winter Park, a nice, lively town a little bit north of Tampa. The mascot is the Tar, an old word for sailor.
Nicole from Naples, FL
- Rollins has a beautiful campus with multiple spots to relax and do homework or hang out with friends while also accessing wifi (even in the middle of the lawn).
- The faculty and staff have a genuine care about your well-being and will go out of their way to make sure that their students are succeeding.
- The variety of classes offered to undergraduate students include a variety of interests in order that students enjoy their classes while fulfilling the general education requirements.
