About Rollins

Founded in 1885 by New England Congregationalists who sought to bring their style of liberal arts education to the Florida frontier, Rollins is a four-year, coeducational institution and the first recognized college in Florida.

A campus like no other

Rollins College is located on the banks of Lake Virginia in Winter Park, Florida, just north of Orlando.

The perfect blend

Challenging coursework, engaging service and international opportunities, and nearly 100 student-led organizations and clubs create a rich living and learning environment ripe for you to find your passion and potential.

Engage in a wide range of ideas and perspectives

A Rollins education challenges you to step outside of your intellectual comfort zone—explore new ideas, reconcile seemingly irreconcilable perspectives, read critically, and write reflectively. In the process, you’ll attain a deeper understanding of the world and your place in it.

Make a difference

At Rollins, you won’t serve the community for the mere purpose of adding a line to your resume—you’ll connect your education and your passions to the needs of the world.
