A look inside Pollard Hall

Flagler College’s newest building is actually a structure designed to look like it’s been around for hundreds of years. The 18,600 square-foot Pollard Hall on Cordova Street replaces the college’s former Communication Building that once sat on the site. Actually three inter-connected buildings, the complex is designed to fit in with St. Augustine’s historic Spanish architecture.

But inside, the modern academic building houses the Communication Department and other classes with nine classrooms, five offices, a state-of-the-art television studio and multiple common areas.

Nelson Pollard, a member of the college’s inaugural co-educational class of 1972, provided the lead gift for the construction of the new academic building, continuing his family’s support of the college.

The William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust also provided a $1.5 million challenge grant that requires one-to-one matching for fulfillment.
