Care, Health & Wellness

At Rollins, we want you to live your best life. That’s why we’ve implemented a robust support system that emphasizes a multidimensional approach to health and wellness—one that extends well beyond the classroom. Our focus is on holistic community care with accessible resources just steps away from where you live and learn, so you’ll never have to go far for the support you need.

Think of our approach to overall well-being as a safety net woven from different strands representing everything from traditional aspects of physical and mental health to social, spiritual, and environmental wellness. By creating resources and designing programming around nine distinctive dimensions of wellness, we care for the whole student on their unique journey through Rollins.

Multidimensional Wellness

Think of our approach to overall well-being as a safety net woven from different strands representing everything from traditional aspects of physical and mental health to social, spiritual, and environmental wellness. By creating resources and designing programming around nine distinctive dimensions of wellness, we care for the whole student on their unique journey through Rollins.

Physical Wellness

Hallmarks of a Rollins education include access to excellent health care, good nutrition, and myriad ways to stay active. The Rollins Wellness Center provides a full suite of health services, and Rollins’ dining is consistently rated among the best in the country for both quality and diversity of options. On America’s most beautiful campus, it’s easy to grab a workout in between classes—whether it’s participating in a rec sport, trying out a group fitness class, or getting out on beautiful Lake Virginia for a paddleboard or kayak sesh. Differently abled students have access to an entire Accessibility Services team dedicated to advocating for you.

Emotional Wellness

College is one of the biggest adventures of your life, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming. When it does, we’ve got your back. The Office of Student & Family Care provides a safe space for tough conversations where students and parents can express concerns related to navigating college life. We’ll work with your family to find workable solutions to whatever problems you may be facing, and we’re dedicated to supporting our students from marginalized backgrounds through the Center for Inclusion & Campus Involvement.

Intellectual Wellness

We believe in embracing curiosity and a spirit of lifelong learning, which is why our entire curriculum is built around the idea of fostering a variety of intellectual endeavors. Our already rigorous academic programs can be enhanced through any number of prestigious pursuits, such as the Rollins Honors Program, independent study, student-faculty research, and study abroad, which includes more than 90 global experiences facilitated by the Office of International Programs. Students looking for academic assistance always have access to free tutoring services through the Tutoring & Writing Center.

Social Wellness

Exploring new interests. Forging relationships. Building community. The takeaways from these experiences will extend far beyond your time at Rollins, and a great place to start is the Center for Leadership & Community Engagement, which facilitates everything from service learning to peer mentorship. Other offices on campus dedicated to social integration and community building include Residential Life & Explorations, the Lucy Cross Center for Women and Their Allies, and the Center for Inclusion & Campus Involvement, all of which strive to create an equitable campus culture.

Occupational Wellness

You don’t have to wait until graduation to start working toward professional development, a key component of a meaningful life and productive career. Rollins’ Center for Career & Life Planning works with students at all stages of their Rollins journey, connecting Tars to some of the world’s most prestigious internships, matching students with alumni mentors whose professional paths align with theirs, and facilitating meaningful on-campus jobs that provide hands-on experience in their field of interest.

Environmental Wellness

At Rollins, we’re committed to acting as responsible stewards of our environment. The College created one of the first environmental studies programs of its kind in the country, laying a foundation for the development of key campus initiatives like the Sustainability Program, which oversees everything from recycling and bike share programs to an on-campus urban farm and Fair Trade practices. Students can also get involved in organizations like EcoRollins, a chapter of local eco-action incubator IDEAS for Us, and Net Impact, which is focused on tackling the world’s toughest challenges by putting business skills to work for good.

Financial Wellness

Budgeting for college can be a major source of stress. The concept of financial wellness—that a person learns to manage their finances to achieve their financial goals—can be tricky to pin down as you navigate financial aid, tuition, and living expenses. Thankfully, the Office of Financial Aid is always standing by to provide support and common-sense advice when it comes to paying for college. Additionally, the Rollins Student Support Foundation is a student-run organization that helps students meet their financial needs through philanthropic donations.

Creative Wellness

Creativity is the lifeblood of the liberal arts, which is why we host a wide range of creative and cultural experiences right on campus. The Cornell Fine Arts Museum is Orlando’s only teaching museum, housing a rotating collection of fine art alongside exhibitions by student-artists. The College’s historic Annie Russell Theatre, Florida’s longest continually running theater, stages an exciting season of musicals and plays featuring student performers, and the Bach Festival regularly hosts world-class concerts on campus, which often showcase the talents of Rollins music majors.

Spiritual Wellness

Spiritual wellness is the practice of seeking meaning through reflection, worship, or human connection. The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life oversees and supports a vast array of spiritual communities on campus, representing all major faiths. They can help you find a spiritual community on or off campus. Non-denominational services are held weekly at Knowles Memorial Chapel right on campus.
