FYE Book

Each year, Flagler selects a book that will provide a foundation for a common academic experience among incoming students. Students are mailed a copy of the book the summer before the fall term, along with a welcome letter from Flagler’s President. The book is utilized during both Academic Sessions at the Building Your Legacy Orientation, as well as a common text in the First Year Seminar.

2018 Selection

This year’s selection is American War by Omar El Akkad. The book chronicles a fictional America of 2074 when a second American Civil War has broken out, oil is outlawed, and Louisiana is half under water. Readers will follow members of the Sarat family as they navigate the dangers of this new place, both personally and politically.
Freshmen and Transfer students will be mailed a copy of the book before arriving to campus.
