You’re about to embark on the journey of a lifetime, and there’s no better way to prepare for your #RollinsLife than Experience Rollins.

Experience Rollins—an immersive event reserved exclusively for students like you—is the closest you can get to being a Rollins student until you’re actually a Rollins student. We’re offering a host of Experience Rollins events between January and April. Reservations are required and space is limited to ensure everyone’s safety, so act fast to secure a spot for you and up to two guests. Can't make it in person? No worries! We’ll bring campus to you via Virtual Experience Rollins.

As a future Rollins Tar, you have a lot to look forward to—from living and learning on America’s most beautiful campus to discovering your Rollins Gateway and charting your own path to a meaningful and productive career. From meeting your mentors to connecting with your future classmates, explore five reasons to register for Experience Rollins today.
