Review of Rollins College

Rating: StarStarStarStar_grayStar_gray By: Marcia B., Alum Posted: April 07, 2012

My review

The Good:

The beautiful campus and beautiful people.

The Bad:

The complete lack of a sense of community which translates into lackluster school spirit and poor general attitude towards the admin. "It's not cool to like Rollins"(Disclaimer: There are GREAT people at Rollins, just not nearly enough)

Would I do it again?

Yes, Despite being very frustrated by 1) the lack of community and 2) the initiative inhibiting bureaucracies, Rollins taught me a lot about people and what it takes to be successful... especially outside the calssroom. (Also: GREAT CONNECTIONS)

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Athletics

The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.

Professors are generally Engaging

The night life is Off Campus

Every student at this school needs Fake ID (Despite strict legal recourse in FL, no partying can happen on campus)

Most students spend their Saturday nights Clubs / Off Campus

About the reviewer

Went to Small Private School

Favorite class is Marine Biology

Favorite professor is Maurice O'sullivan

Favorite activity is Campus Golf or Campus Frisbee Golf

Another awesome thing is My professors were almost always amazing!

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Make personal contact with the admissions dept (they are all phenomenal people)

I wish I knew The school had completely cracked down on on campus parties and instituted a crap load of red tape which impedes student initative and creative ideas (Good luck throwing a well attended on campus event of any kind.. except for LipSync)

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation I found work before I graduated
