Over the course of the weekend, Rollins families met President Grant Cornwell and his wife, Peg; took part in an interactive Block Party focused on the nine dimensions of wellness; interacted with members of the Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship program; participated in a nature walk around campus; visited the archives; listened to student musicians; and learned more about the new curriculum, Rollins Foundations in the Liberal Arts (rFLA), as well as career and life planning, R-Compass, and fraternity and sorority life on campus.

One of the weekend’s highlights was the Annual Picnic on the Lawn, which had nearly 400 people in attendance.
