This Year at Rollins: 2022
December 14, 2022
By Grant H. Cornwell
It has been another brilliant year at Rollins. As 2022 draws to a close, it is a fitting time to reflect on all that we have accomplished together this year. There is much to celebrate.
Rollins was once again ranked as the No.1 regional university in the South by U.S. News & World Report. This spring, the College became one of only 296 institutions in the nation to house a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the country’s oldest and most prestigious honor society. This fall, Rollins welcomed the largest entering class in its history. And that’s just scratching the surface of what Tars have achieved in 2022.
I hope you are as proud of these accomplishments as I am, because they would not be possible without our entire community’s commitment to our mission and to one another. I wish you and your families peace, health, and happiness this holiday season.
