Relationship with Rollins College

Customized Courses, Hands-on Learning

Intellectual. Innovative. Interactive. Intergenerational. That’s the kind of continuing education residents enjoy through The Mayflowers’ unique relationship with Rollins College. In fact, the college’s Center for Lifelong Learning began as a pilot program with The Mayflower, which was honored by the International Council on Active Aging with its prestigious ICAA Innovators Award.

Today, Mayflower residents participate in a variety of customized courses that feature hands-on learning and are taught by Rollins faculty and staff. Subjects include art, theater, physics, astronomy, writing, history, social media and environmental sciences, among others.

Classes are taught at The Mayflower, as well as on the Rollins campus, which is located just three miles away. Transportation is provided.

This lifelong learning collaboration complements a long, connected history between the college and The Mayflower. In addition to sharing common ancestry (both were founded by the First Congregational Church of Winter Park), Rollins has been providing speakers and programs to The Mayflower for years.
