Why did you choose to attend Flagler?

When I visited St. Augustine during a middle school field trip, we toured Flagler College and I instantly fell in love with the College. I stood in the Ponce Courtyard and declared to my friends that I would go to college at Flagler. In high school, once I begin my college research, everything kept bringing me back to the Flagler website. It seemed like all my checkboxes were marked with Flagler so I only applied here and luckily, my admissions counselor accepted me!

Favorite St. Augustine activity

St. Augustine is a foodie town! I love going to new restaurants and finding all the great “off the beaten path” type places. If you need a restaurant recommendation, I am happy to help!

Tip(s) for incoming students

Attend all the events during Welcome Week! This is the best time to meet new people and get acquainted with the layout of campus before your classes begin.

Tip(s) for applicants

Take the time to visit each college you are planning to apply to. Most prospective students can decide if the campus feels like a good fit within the first 10 minutes of their visit. Really take a look around and ask your tour guides questions – you need to make sure you feel at home wherever you decide to attend. Oh, and proofread your essays!!
