Rollins In A Box

Host your own Rollins event and connect with Tars anytime, anywhere.

Rollins alumni always have a great time when they’re together. Now YOU can make that happen anytime! Hold your own alumni gathering to reconnect with classmates in your area, network with other Rollins professionals, or host a mixer to connect with local alumni you haven’t yet met. 

How do you get started? 3 Easy Steps!

  1. Fill out the form to request your own Rollins In A Box to add to your alumni gathering. You'll receive a response within 48 hours of submission. Allow up to 4 weeks from the time of your form submission to host your event. 
  2. Post your event on RollinsConnect, and your own social media channels to spread the word. RollinsConnect lets you search and contact all the alumni in your surrounding area. 
  3. We’ll send you a special Rollins Box containing Rollins swag to help you throw a great event where everyone can show their Rollins pride! We’ll also include our latest magazines or brochures so your guests can see what’s new on campus.

As a volunteer host, you have the option of applying for funding support for food, non-alcoholic beverages, or other event-related costs. To receive funding you must share the final attendee list, submit related receipts, and send photos taken during the event. Funding support is available up to $50 for 10 or less attendees, or up to $150 for 25+ attendees. Funding support will be provided after the event upon meeting the above criteria. If you do not wish to receive funding support after, receipts are not necessary but we still ask that hosts provide a final attendee list and photos.
