Da wife and I wandered over to look at Rollins while we were staying at the Alfond Inn (interesting thing....the profits from the Alfond go to scholarships for Rollins students). It’s only a one block walk. I believe it was voted the most beautiful campus in the country in 2016. The architecture, grounds and lake all work together to earn... More

You can feel the atmosphere of this College right when you cross the entrance portal. Beautiful, clean and organized. You can see students practicing sport activities in a big field - one of the important things this College support.

Every year you can attend the rehearsal for free. You must get the free tickets in advance. It is amazing to watch and hear the music and voices. The campus is pristine and beautiful and just a block or so from Park Avenue. Looking forward to next year.

They have some lectures open to the public as well as musical performances although the seats in the chapel are a penance after an hour. Lecture halls are modern and comfortable. Heard the museum is good, next year we'll visit. We just like riding through the campus on our way past Lake Virginia.

This is an awesome place to take friends or family as it has phenomenal works of art! Some of my favorite things I've seen there include a Roman sarcophagus, with ornate carvings, and an original, framed photograph of Abraham Lincoln.

While visiting Orlando, I needed to find a place that had a nice backdrop to take a few portraits and when I googled Rollins College, I knew I'd found the right place. The campus is well kept and very scenic. It looks like something out of a movie. They have gazebos, a pond with lily pads, and a beautiful rose... More

As a graduate of this institution my opinions are a bit biased. I have always enjoyed the college and its grounds, its ambiance, its architecture. The Spanish Gothic chapel is certainly worth a visit as is the Cornell Art Museum. Both are gems. Rollins has a fine theater program and the Annie Russell Theater produces plays in season. Just a...

Rollins has so much to offer for its students and the community. The campus offers musical concerts for free to the public, The jazz band is amazing. The Chapel is beautiful and offers services in the morning and a Catholic service Sunday night. There are many opportunities to take in a special lecture offered to the whole community.

This beautiful campus on the lake has some classic Spanish architecture, a lovely chapel and wonderful oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. The grounds are pedestrian friendly and provide a quiet refuge if you need a break.
