Rollins College Fair Trade
Rollins College is located on the banks of Lake Virginia in Winter Park, FL, just north of Orlando. Rollins features small classes taught by renowned faculty. The academic experience is enhanced by study-abroad and internship opportunities as well as ways to participate in student organizations and the local community.
With great support from administrators, students, faculty and staff, the Rollins Sustainability Program, EcoRollins and the Fair Trade Committee were able to complete all requirements to receive fair trade designation in April 2013!
