    Women of Vision Fund Takes Shape

    Apr 3
    It’s no secret that Flagler College has long been a special place for women to cultivate achievement and leadership. In fact, at its founding in 1968, Flagler’s student body was entirely female; the vote for co-ed enrollment did not come until 1971.

    Preserving the Ponce

    A Future-Building Partnership

    Apr 3
    When Flagler College Trustee and alumnus Richard “Rick” Groux, ‘79, first arrived in St. Augustine as an undergraduate in the fall of 1975, the college was less than a decade old and had been accredited for less than two years. Kenan Hall was still seven years away from being used as an academic building, and the library was housed — albeit tightly — in the Flagler Room, formerly the parlor of the historic Hotel Ponce de Leon. Groux took a chance on a college that bore little resemblance to the austere, sprawling campuses of his home state of Virginia.

    Running into the Record Books

    Apr 3
    Many thought that an 8K cross country record lasting 29 years was practically set in stone. But not senior runner Cory Mundy, who shattered the record in 2013 as a junior. More remarkable is that Mundy has only been running competitively for about five years.

    Faculty Q&A: Taking History to the People

    Mar 19
    When most of us think about history, things like the Roman Empire or World War II might come to mind.

    Forging the Braille Trail in St. Augustine

    Mar 19
    Cody Kirchner lost his vision as a small child, and he knows how intimidating it can be to be a blind person in a sighted world.

The assignment demanded that he navigate pedestrian crossings and public transportation.
