The Remarkable Rollins College

Rollins College is a private liberal arts college in Winter Park, Florida, United States. It was founded in 1885 and is one of Florida’s oldest institutions of higher learning. The college is known for its picturesque campus on the shores of Lake Virginia and its commitment to providing a well-rounded education that emphasizes academic excellence and community engagement.

Rollins College offers undergraduate and graduate programs in various disciplines, including arts, sciences, business, and professional studies. It is particularly renowned for its international business, environmental studies, and theater arts programs.

The college strongly emphasizes experiential learning and offers numerous opportunities for students to engage in internships, research projects, study abroad programs, and community service initiatives.

In addition to its academic programs, Rollins College is also known for its vibrant campus life, which includes a wide range of student organizations, cultural events, and athletic teams. The college’s motto, “Fiat Lux” (Let there be light), reflects its commitment to intellectual inquiry, personal growth, and social responsibility. I had the opportunity to visit Rollins on the “Sunshine Tour,” a tour of private colleges in Florida. If you are looking for a SLAC (Small Liberal Arts College that is beautiful and has an excellent academic environment), put Rollins on your list.
