Fox Day

Fox Day Cam
Think of Fox Day Cam as a video vigil for Rollins College’s most beloved tradition. The camera offers 24-hour surveillance of Tars Plaza where the arrival of the fox statue signals the start of Fox Day each spring. In years past, it's also served as a stage for students to express their Fox Day fervor in some rather original ways. What will Fox Day Cam capture this year? Stay tuned.

What Is Fox Day?

Fox Day is an annual tradition established by Rollins’ 10th president, Hugh McKean, in 1956. Each spring, on a day deemed “too pretty to have class,” the president cancels all classes for the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Professional Studies, providing undergraduate students with a surprise day off.
