"Rollins is a community of people dedicated to the learning process. Students are encouraged to participate and go beyond their limits in the classroom via Socratic sessions and active teacher-student engagement activities. There's never a dull moment. Contrary opinions are welcomed and questions are always taken advantage of as an opportunity to expound upon course content outside of traditional class materials. Foreign language learning is highly encouraged. There are plenty of opportunities to study abroad and I highly recommend students take advantage of them. If you want to slack off then Rollins isn't the place for you. Classes are small and your professor is going to know your name. Do the work and you will be justly rewarded with discussions you will end up enjoying so much they will accompany you outside the classroom when the class is over. The food is incredibly delicious and the fake chipotle is better than the real thing.The library has four floors and an excellent selection of international films. Youll be in the heart of Winter Parks Park Avenue but dont let the temptation of all of the delicious restaurants in your vicinity overcome you! The campus is small so everything is within reasonable walking distance. Parking isnt really that bad as long as youve got a parking pass but its pretty much a free for all during pique hours. Parking during the Summer Term is great though. The Cornell Fine Arts Museum is a must see. Get ready to learn about Floridas rich history. The Winter Park Public library is close too just in case you are looking for an even wider selection of study material. Overall, youll come out of Rollins really understanding what it means to be a global citizen."

"I really enjoyed my time at Rollins College. I was blessed with getting a lot of assistance with everything While I was there including financial aid. The school has much to offer its students including a beautiful campus, caring faculty, a wonderful cafeteria and an area with lots to do. The classes are tough however that helps you to become a better student. I have no regrets about attending."

"I absolutely loved Rollins College. The town was beautiful and the campus was breath taking. The professors are incredibly helpful and the classes are small so you have a lot of one on one time with your professors. The campus is relatively small and it take about 15 minutes to walk the entire campus."

"Real-world skills are learned here. You feel like a student that matters instead of just a number in a classroom. The campus is simply beautiful. You feel like you're a part of a country club rather than an academic institute. As with any school, your satisfaction and return of investment will depend on the effort that you put in."

"Academic rigor aside (which varies by degree as Rollins provides exceptional Business, Chemistry, and Bnglish programs but has fewer resources in departments like Computer Science), Rollins College's largest advantage is in networking and relationships. The school emphasizes small class sizes which encourage you to network and build relationships with your classmates and professors, make it easier for professors to understand their students' strengths and weaknesses and provide detailed feedback, and foster public speaking and presentation skills in all types of courses. Part of the frustration that often grows up surrounding these incredible networking opportunities though, is the limited student body and faculty with which to work. While Rollins students there do tend to become very influential contacts, the student population is small enough that only certain groups are truly represented. But even more problematic is the limited faculty which, while likely providing good letters of recommendation, are unlikely to be carry much weight in applying to top-notch graduate programs (though, again, it depends on your field). As a liberal arts school, Rollins encourages its students to explore other majors--which is wonderful--but you, as the student, also need to understand Rollins' limitations. If you switch to Computer Science, you may want to consider transferring schools. However, Rollins does have a lot of resources to offer its students -- particularly internationally. Not only do they provide absolutely amazing study abroad opportunities, their study abroad team is a well oiled machine that will work with each student to make the process of applying, moving, and securing funding for study/internships abroad easy and painless. Studying abroad is actually a central tenet of the Rollins curriculum. Most students study abroad and many do so for even more than one semester. This provides some much needed balance to the learning process since the student body is quite homogenous. Study abroad opportunities (and very high rates of students who study abroad during their academic careers) do help provide some very valuable work and study experiences in other cultures. Rollins also has a lot to offer its students in terms of career or post-graduate counseling. The school has been one of the top producers of Fulbright scholars (a prestigious year-long scholarship to study, teach, or complete research as exchange students) for a number of years, and their Fulbright advisor is very adept and a wonderful support figure."

"The Rollins College English Department is truly something special. All of the faculty are approachable, knowledgeable, and genuinely invested in the continuing education of their students. The department has fantastic programs such as Winter with the Writers, a festival throughout February where authors from all over the world visit, affording students the opportunity to meet and even workshop their own work with them. There is a great variety of classes, ranging from a focus on classic literature to more contemporary, perhaps lesser-known works, with all of these courses fostering social and cultural awareness. Rollins as a whole truly wants all of its students to be global citizens. I'd highly recommend Rollins and the English Major to anyone interested in literature and writing. I have learned so much and am legitimately enjoying my time at Rollins, taking fun, challenging classes, and interacting with amazing people everyday."
