The Parents Council

The Parents Council serves as a communication link between the College and the parents of undergraduate students. Membership on The Parents Council enables parents to more actively participate in the life of their student as well as interact with other parents. The talent and commitment of The Parents Council members continue to contribute to the success of each student's Rollins experience. Parents play an important role in the Rollins community.

Summer Welcome Receptions

The Office of Parent Programs looks forward to welcoming members of the Class of 2020 and their parents. It will be a pleasure to meet with students and their families in Connecticut, New York, DC and Virginia and in Chicago. These receptions provide a fun opportunity for students to meet other incoming students from the region, area alumni, and provide everyone a chance to get answers to those last-minute questions before Move-In Day. Parents are able to connect with other incoming families and learn more about opportunities for involvement at Rollins.

For further information or if you would like to attend a reception, please call the Office of Parent Programs and speak to Julie Cunningham at 407-646-2568 or email her at
