David Erdmann was dean of admission and enrollment at Rollins for 29 years—a nearly unheard-of stint in a field where admission deans come and go, and burnout is an occupational hazard.
Burnout was not in Dave’s lexicon; burning with passion for his work was. He loved finding the right students for Rollins, then following those students throughout their time on campus and beyond. He went to athletic practices, games, theater performances—whatever students were involved in, he followed with pride and his trademark curiosity.
David G. Erdmann died accidentally on October 7, 2013, while pursuing his passion, fly-fishing, on his favorite pond in Winter Park.
