WINTER PARK, Fla. (October 2, 2012) - For the third straight year, Rollins has ranked among the nation's best in blending academic and athletics success, according to the NCSA Collegiate Power Rankings.

Rollins ranked second in Division II and was tied for 15th overall in this year's ranking.

NCSA's Collegiate Power Rankings assess the academic and athletics standards of all NCAA athletic programs across the country. The rankings were developed to help prospective student-athletes and their families evaluate the particular strengths of the top colleges and universities at the Division I, II and III levels.

The Collegiate Power Rankings from NCSA Athletic Recruiting are calculated for each Division I, II and III college and university by averaging student-athlete graduation rates, academic rankings provided by U.S. News & World Report, and the strength of athletic departments as determined by the U.S. Sports Academy Directors' Cup ranking.

The Tars ranked 51st in academics, 20th in athletics and continued to have one of the highest NCAA Graduation Rates in the country. Only UC-San Diego ranked higher than Rollins in the division. Williams and Amherst topped the overall rankings while Duke and Notre Dame tied for third and Stanford rounded out the top-five.  

Rollins has been in the rankings six of the 10 years the poll was released. The Tars were fifth in the initial poll, 16th in 2006, 45th in 2007 and 13th in 2010. Last season, Rollins was third in Division II and 37th overall.
