Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Walking Audio Tour

Fred Rogers’ legacy of kindness, responsibility, and community continues to endure in the world and throughout the Rollins College campus. At Rollins College, Rogers discovered his purpose while studying music composition. Here, he learned “Life is for Service,” the importance of relationships, and that community is the driver of good. It is the same environment, one rooted in experiential and relational learning, where we prepare our students to be the next generation of responsible leaders and global citizens.

We invite you to explore the neighborhood that shaped America’s favorite neighbor on this 5-stop self-guided walking tour. To learn more about Mister Rogers and his impact on Rollins College, visit rollins.edu/mister-rogers.

Guests should allow about an hour to experience the audio tour, which guides listeners through ADA-accessible walkways. With respect to your surroundings and of college members, please wear headphones when indoors.

The content for this audio tour is adapted from the writings of Randy Noles, originally published in the Winter Park Magazine. It is hosted by Scott Bokash, edited by Jo Marie Hebeler and Stephanie Nieves, and produced by Stephanie Nieves.

All stops are readily accessible Monday – Friday during the month of March, between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. All other times, the memorabilia in Olin Library can be viewed by appointment by emailing archives@rollins.edu or calling 407-646-2421.
