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.

Lovely campus, but didn't fall in love with the school. Not the friendliest campus I've been on. No football, but many other sports.

This is a private, expensive liberal arts school, though it does have more affordable classes for local residents and retirees. Just walking the campus along Lake Virginia in nice weather is a treat. The Mediterranean architecture is evocative of another time and place and the landscaping (there's an exotic plant greenhouse among other treats) is sumptuous. You can see the... More

The college is beautiful to just do a walking tour through. There is also a small art gallery that is fun to wander through. There are also student productions at the Annie Russel Theatre.

The Winter Park boat ride (at the east end of Morse Ave.) will give you a view of the college campus from the water. Walk down Park Avenue and come onto campus for a walking tour. The Walk of Fame is an fascinating collection of names of people that have contributed to the betterment of society. The Cornell Fine Arts... More
