The Flagler Difference
A legacy of exploration
Flagler College welcomes you to historic St. Augustine--a city of firsts that continues to attract explorers, innovators and entrepreneurs to its shores, just as it did Ponce de León and, more recently, Henry M. Flagler.
To understand what makes Flagler College different, you must first get to know a bit about Henry M. Flagler. An industrialist, philanthropist and railroad pioneer, Flagler was also a visionary and an innovator. He saw Florida's potential and is credited with building much of the Florida coast, one luxury hotel after another, and making it the vacation destination it continues to be today.
Flagler’s legacy is alive and well in the intricate woodwork, marble mosaics and soaring rotunda of the former Hotel Ponce de León, which he built in 1888 and serves as the centerpiece for Flagler College.
The journey of a lifetime
At Flagler, we value the spirit of exploration and encourage our students to step out of their comfort zones and stretch themselves. We are looking for the next generation of explorers who believe that college is not the end but the beginning of a lifelong journey.
