Silver Seal for Excellence in Student Voter Engagement

At the first-ever ALL IN Challenge Awards Ceremony, held October 19, to recognize colleges and universities committed to increasing college student voting rates, Rollins College received a silver seal for achieving a student rate between 60% and 69%.

 

The Rollins College Democracy Project is a nonpartisan student-led initiative at Rollins College dedicated to the idea that civic engagement is critical to our future.

We’re a group of students who are passionate about democracy and about creating opportunities for fellow students to learn about and discuss process, issues, and candidates. Our purpose is simple: encourage and empower Rollins students to be civically engaged, whether they’re eligible to vote or not.

Upcoming events:

  • Politics on the Porch (Pinehurst Cottage; 2nd Thursday of every month; 12:30 - 1:30): Join the Democracy Project for a dialogue based event designed to raise awareness on local politics and civic engagement opportunities. 
  • Politics on Tap (Dave’s Boathouse; last Thursday of every month; 5 PM – 6 PM): Come relax and grab a drink and discuss hot political topics with the Democracy Project and Political Science Department! Topics of discussion range from freedom of speech to education reform. 

Check out #RollinsVotes for all your voting needs and resources!
