Why did you choose to attend Flagler?

I chose to attend Flagler because I truly felt welcomed and valued the moment I stepped foot on campus. The students, faculty, and staff create such a warm and welcoming environment that I was immediately drawn to. Flagler College is truly unique and gave me so many special memories in the 4 years as a student to make me feel like I was at home. Working here will give me the opportunity to return the favor to future Saints!

Favorite St. Augustine activity

My favorite St. Augustine activity would have to be getting coffee anywhere in the downtown area! St. Augustine is very walkable, and I always look forward to walking over to my favorite coffee shop, The Kookaburra, for some local, fresh-made coffee and banana bread!

Tip(s) for incoming students

A great tip for incoming students is to be patient when finding yourself as a student. St. Augustine & Flagler have so much to offer, and at times it may seem a bit overwhelming. As long as you are true to yourself, you’ll quickly find your place here. These are going to be the most exciting years of your life, so don’t worry about the little things!

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about anything. No question is too small, and our staff is here to support you throughout the entire decision-making process. We want you to feel comfortable when deciding how Flagler may fit into your future plans!
