School Spotlight: Rollins College

Rollins College

I became interested in the college admissions process after serving as a student tour guide in the admissions office of my alma mater. After graduating, I accepted an admissions counseling position at Bennington College in Vermont where I evaluated applications and reviewed art portfolios from students across the country. Three years later, after pursuing my master's degree in New York City, I joined the admissions staff at Barnard College where I served as a senior admissions officer. At Barnard, I directed Long Island and Boston recruitment in addition to managing the College's alumnae interview program, coordinating admissions statistics, and editing various college publications. Having also served as an alumni interviewer for Dartmouth College and visited over 75 colleges, I feel especially well-equipped to help students prepare for admission interviews and campus tours.

There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. And while the media tends to focus on just a handful of schools, we at College Coach encourage students to think outside the box during their college selection process and explore a wide range of colleges. As such, we are highlighting a new college each week in our School Spotlight series. Check out the college below, along with the other posts in our series, and you may just stumble upon your dream school! School Spotlight: Rollins College Winter Park, FL Location, location, location. For students who love warm weather and proximity to the water, Rollins College is hard to beat. The College’s beautiful campus is located in central Florida, adjacent to Orlando and situated on the shores of Lake Virginia. Here, approximately 2,500 undergraduates (45 percent of whom come from states other than Florida), can choose from a range of traditional liberal arts and science majors, including critical media & cultural studies, marine biology, and social entrepreneurship & business. A redesigned general education curriculum features “neighborhoods” inspired by Rollins alumnus Mr. Rogers. Students must take five courses in themes such as “When Cultures Collide” and “Mysteries and Marvels,” which combine interdisciplinary study with community engagement. Looking to get a jump start on earning your MBA? Qualified students can accelerate their business career by taking advantage of the College’s 3/2 Accelerated Management Program. Although international business majors comprise 30 percent of AMP students, you can major in anything from environmental studies to studio art before beginning graduate coursework. Fun fact: Rollins offers full scholarships (worth over $250,000) to 10 high-achieving freshmen each year. Photo credit: Top, Courtesy of Rollins College College-Visit-CTA
