Fred Rogers Florida Facts:

  • Fred Rogers attended Winter Park's Rollins College.  He was drawn to Rollins because of its music program, transferring to the school after studying French at Dartmouth College for a year.
  • Rogers graduated from Rollins in 1951 with a bachelor's dress in music composition.
  • Fred Rogers married Sara Byrd in 1952.  The two met on the campus of Rollins College.  Mrs. Rogers became an accomplished concert pianist.
  • As a Rollins Student, Rogers was inspired by the phrase, "Life is for Service," that is engraved in marble and mounted on the wall of Strong Hall.  He wrote it down on a small piece of paper and carried it in his wallet throughout his life as a reminder.
  • Before his death, Mr. & Mrs. Rogers spent most winters in Winter Park.  Fred swam every day at the Langford Hotel; when it closed, he used the pool at Rollins.  He would also wander the campus and often slip into lecture halls for classes.
