Parents of Prospective Students

Lewis M. Duncan Ph.D. - PresidentPresident's Message to Parents

As the 14th president of Rollins College and father of three current college students, I have developed a special and personal perspective of the college-search process. As parents, we endeavor to help our children find the “right fit”: a college environment that provides the nurturing support, intellectual challenges, and opportunities for personal growth that enable our daughters and sons to realize their fullest potential, finding their purpose and their place.

We hope that Rollins is the “right fit” for your student. Ranked #1 in the South in its category by U.S. News & World Report, and also one of the best values, Rollins is far more than a name at the top of a chart. Our combination of high-quality academic programs, commitment to applied liberal education—active learning in and out of the classroom, and focus on service leadership makes Rollins unique. Rollins faculty are passionate about teaching and are personally invested in the growth and success of our students.

The professional success Rollins graduates enjoy confirms the value of a Rollins degree. We encourage you and your student to explore the opportunities for success only a Rollins education can offer.
