Rollins College

Founded in 1885 by New England Congregationalists who sought to bring their style of liberal arts education to the Florida frontier, Rollins is a four-year, coeducational institution and the first recognized college in Florida.

About

History

One afternoon in 1880, Lucy Cross had a vision: a college in Central Florida. Five years later, Rollins became the first college in the area, and is now the oldest recognized college in the state. Since that day, we have aspired to empower our students to see a vision of how the world could be and to provide them with the tools to effect the change they envision.

Education

Rollins features small classes taught by renowned faculty. Our academics are enhanced by study-abroad and internship opportunities as well as ways to be engaged on campus and in the community.
