Second-Year Students

For many second-year students, the focus is on finalizing several long-term academic and life decisions. One of the core decisions second-year students analyze is if they are going to finish their degree at Rollins. Additionally, second-year students make long-term decisions about major(s)/minor(s) declarations, involvement in high impact practices, and their desired levels of integration, leadership, and involvement in the larger Rollins community.

Milestones for Second-Year Students

To support second-year students’ long-term involvement and integration into Rollins successfully, we have created milestones that we believe will set second-year students up for success. We value that each student has a diverse set of goals and experiences, so we fully expect that faculty advisors will adapt this guide to meet the individual needs of the student.
