WHAT I LIKED

Rollins College is not the typical college struggle. While other colleges will leave you to figure things out on your own (while you struggle to apply for classes and wait in long lines for advising), Rollins starts you off with everything you need to find your way. The RCC experience (for first-year students, which is very much like an "intro to college" course with extras) was honestly just what I needed to get used to college. It taught me where all the resources were, how to register for classes, and the different majors and minors available. Although the small school size may be a turn-off for some students, it definitely has its advantages as well. For example, it is very easy to get an appointment for any department on campus. It is also easier to "know everyone" since, more often than not, you have seen someone before. They have plenty of networking opportunities and the advisors (that I had) were very helpful and strive to point you in the right direction. Regarding Chemistry, I firmly believe it is a better experience than other, big schools that will push you "into the fray" as soon as you start. However, the one disadvantage is that, due to the small class sizes, it may be difficult to get into the class you want and you have to adhere to a strict schedule to avoid missing a class that is only given in the spring or fall semesters. However, the small class sizes do have the advantage of students working together to study and having more personalized attention when it comes to questions in class. The chemistry department is very friendly and overall great teachers.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Students should be aware that, like in any other college, parties can be dangerous. I have never gone to one myself, but I have heard many first-hand and second-hand accounts from people who highly suggest staying as safe as possible. However, all the on-campus events are highly safe and I highly suggest them. Students should also be aware that, if they are decided on their major from early on, to tell their advisor right away. Some classes needed for your major are only held for one semester every year. So it is important to jump on those classes right away. Also, although I believe the cafeteria is one of the best and cleanest out there, students with *severe* allergies should still watch out and use common sense (not just blindly believe the ingredient cards). I have many allergies and the allergy station has never caused me trouble. However, I heard some students with severe sensitivity to their allergies suggest being extra careful with food from other stations, or alerting the cafeteria if the allergen food gives a reaction. (Just for the record, I firmly believe Rollins has the best food options compared to other schools that do not have anything for those with allergies. They have a vegan station, salad bar, sandwich station (with gluten-free options), the allergen station (that is free from most allergens), yogurt bar, and a regular station (food that is not for those with allergies).

WHAT I LIKED

Rollins being a small school makes it feel like a community. You know so many people, but it's not so small that everybody knows everybody's business. Also amazing campus, food, and gives lots of scholarships.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is private and very expensive and doesn't have the biggest range of majors.

WHAT I LIKED

I think Rollins is a very excellent college because it allows for growth. You can make personal connections with your teachers and classmates that you wouldn’t look at a bigger school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's just super pricy and you have to work for scholarships.
