About Rollins Magazine



Established in 1917 as The Rollins Alumni Record, Rollins magazine serves to maintain and enhance the relationship between Rollins College and its alumni and other constituencies by building pride in the institution through effective communication of news of alumni and the College. It aims to keep readers of varying ages and interests connected to current developments, programs, and achievements at Rollins, and to keep alumni connected to each other. The magazine is a primary vehicle for communicating Rollins’ mission of commitment to educational excellence, educating students for global citizenship and responsible leadership, innovation in pedagogy and student services, and maintaining the close community ties that have always been a hallmark of the Rollins experience.

As the flagship publication of Rollins College, Rollins magazine is published twice a year for alumni and friends of the College by the Office of Marketing & Communications, 1000 Holt Ave. - 2729, Winter Park, FL 32789-4499. Copyright ©2012 by Rollins College. All rights reserved.
