Scene on Campus
Aug 11, 2010
College campuses buzz in the spring, and Flagler is no exception. The semester becomes a flurry of activity as student clubs, organizations and programs bring the campus alive with unique projects and events. These are just a few of the events that happened at Flagler this past spring.
A large stack of books adorned with the word “profound” popped up overnight in the Proctor Library toward the end of the spring semester. In less than one day, students Abby Pratchios, Shannon Lunsford, Beth Johnston and Tyler Tremellen constructed the piece for their Typography class. What’s even more astonishing is that the word “profound” was made entirely of yellow pushpins.
Associate Professor Andrea McCook’s Shakespeare class got a taste of performing “in the round” when they used Flagler’s Rotunda as a substitute for the famous Globe Theatre.
On April 2, graphic design and fine art students hosted a sidewalk art festival in conjunction with St. Augustine’s First Friday Art Walk. Walking by was like visiting an outdoor studio with students lying on the ground, kneeling in the street and doing whatever they could to finish their work. The result was a multi-colored, block-long showcase of some outstanding student art.
