Orientation Programs

Our orientation programs are your keys to getting familiar with campus; meeting your classmates and student leaders; and connecting with the academic, social, and co-curricular life at Rollins. We currently offer three distinct orientation programs.

Welcome to Rollins

The Student Success team wants to help all incoming students make connections to other students, faculty and staff, and the larger community.

Fall Orientation

The Student Success team wants you to start the year comfortable on campus and ready to begin your new adventure.  Although it is difficult to imagine what to expect the first few weeks of college, Fall O will prepare you for the rest of your time at Rollins.

You will explore campus, meet new students, and familiarize yourself with the wide variety of academic resources and student activities on campus. There will be lots of programs designed to introduce you to campus and help you get to know your RCC professor, Peer Mentors and fellow students.

It may seem overwhelming at first, but in no time you will be able to find your way around with first-hand knowledge of the possibilities available to you. Take advantage of all Rollins has to offer; this is how your education will take shape. We encourage you to get off to a good start by fully participating in the Orientation program.

If you are arriving to Winter Park before Orientation you will unfortunately not be able to view your Residence Hall room as all halls this summer are undergoing maintenance or construction/renovation and will be inaccessible "hard-hat only zones".

Incoming first-year students and transfers will report to campus on August 19, 2015 for mandatory Fall Orientation. Please be advised that International Students will report to campus on August 16, 2015. 
Fall classes will begin on Monday, August 24, 2014.
 

Spring Orientation

The January equivalent to Fall O, Spring Orientation is required for all students entering the College in January. The Student Success team wants you to start the year comfortable on campus and ready to begin your new adventure.  Although it is difficult to imagine what to expect the first few weeks of college, Spring O will prepare you for the rest of your time at Rollins.

You will explore campus, meet new students, and familiarize yourself with the wide variety of academic resources and student activities on campus. There will be programs designed to introduce you to campus and help you get to know your RCC professor, Peer Mentors and fellow students.

Spring Orientation will begin on January 8, 2015 for new transfer students.
