Fox Day, which is co-sponsored by SGA and the President’s office, is a long-standing and much-loved tradition at Rollins. In the spring of 1956, President Hugh F. McKean placed a statue of the Rollins fox on Mills Lawn, cancelled all classes, and invited everyone to spend the day "doing things as a college." Fox Day is celebrated once a year during the spring.
Halloween Howl, which is co-sponsored by OCE (Office of Community Engagement), is a fun and safe daytime event for the entire family. Some of the “spooky” activities offered include: a costume contest, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, arts and crafts activities and carnival games. Children have the opportunity to get a head-start on trick-or-treating throughout the residence halls and tour haunted houses created by Rollins student organizations. The event is free and open to the public.
CMF is one of Rollins’ most highly attended events. It’s not only a great opportunity to get involved on campus, but it also provides an outlet for students to showcase their talents, speak their minds and entertain their peers. Campus Movie Fest is hosted by All Campus Events (ACE).
Lip Sync is sponsored by The Student Government Association. It is a competition open to all campus organizations in which the groups compete for the best lip syncing and choreographed routine.
GLOBAL PEACE FILM FESTIVAL
The Global Peace Film Festival examines the concept of peace on a global platform through film, art and discussion panels. GPFF is much more than a film festival to the Rollins community. The academic experience linked to the festival extends the goals of Rollins' core mission, using film as a medium to promote reflection on global citizenry and responsible leadership. From classes with academic curriculum based around the festival to public screenings of student-produced films, the College's participation in this festival adds a new element to the educational process.
