Residential Life & Explorations

Spring Orientation

Orientation is your key to get familiar with campus; meet your classmates and student leaders; and connect with the academic, social, and co-curricular life at Rollins.

About Orientation

The Residential Life & Explorations 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, Orientation 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. 

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.
