Rollins Reconnects

By Amanda D'Assaro






Reunion: a word that resonates with Rollins alumni on many levels. It means springtime in Florida, new and familiar faces and places, gatherings on picturesque Lake Virginia, and a three-day celebration bursting with the tradition, prestige, and spirit that embody their alma mater.

Last March, Rollins welcomed alumni from near and far back to campus for the popular event, which honored all classes ending “0” and “5” as well as basketball and cheerleading alumni. In addition to familiar traditions such as the Grove Party, alumni barbeque, and campus tour led by President Emeritus Thaddeus Seymour, returning graduates enjoyed a lunch with students and an outdoor dinner honoring class reunions under a tent on Mills Lawn. The atmosphere was vibrant as alumni reunited with people they remember fondly, a place they once called home, and memories they will never forget.
