Fox Day, which is co-sponsored by SGA and the President’s office, is a long-standing and much-loved tradition at Rollins. In the spring of 1956, President Hugh F. McKean placed a statue of the Rollins fox on Mills Lawn, cancelled all classes, and invited everyone to spend the day "doing things as a college." Fox Day is celebrated once a year during the spring.

Halloween Howl, which is co-sponsored by OCE (Office of Community Engagement), is a fun and safe daytime event for the entire family. Some of the “spooky” activities offered include: a costume contest, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, arts and crafts activities and carnival games. Children have the opportunity to get a head-start on trick-or-treating throughout the residence halls and tour haunted houses created by Rollins student organizations. The event is free and open to the public.


Each year, OSIL and OMA (Office of Multicultural Affairs) host the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration. This historical event reflects upon the past while demonstrating the advancement of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy. OSIL along with the Rollins community honor Dr. King as a leader of America’s greatest nonviolent movement for justice, equality and peace.
