Dog Days of Rollins

With students away for the summer, Rollins dogs come to work and play.

The Dog Days are the sultriest days of summer, lasting July through August. Coined by the ancient Greeks and Romans who associated the hot weather with the star Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major (Large Dog) and in the night sky, the Dog Days experience the least amount rainfall in the Northern Hemisphere.

At Rollins, Dog Days are associated with a quieter campus, ample parking, and sometimes even bringing your dog to work.
