Immediate Impact & Long-Term Leadership
A Rollins education puts our graduates on a path to long-term success. More than one third of Fortune 1000 CEOs own a liberal arts degree, and a recent Georgetown University study found that the return on investment for an education at a liberal arts college was more than $900,000 40 years after enrollment—more than 25 percent higher than the median gain at all colleges. While our graduates enjoy long-run leadership, Tars also experience success right out of the gate.
