Scene on Campus

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.

Students and tourists blocked Sevilla Street when they stopped to see what was happening on the West Lawn on April 1. More than 50 Flagler employees participated in a flash mob, dancing to a choreographed number led by Flagler student Jillian McClure. It was all part of the college’s new logo campaign and an April Fools’ Day surprise.
When the Proctor Library started staying open 24 hours a day during Flagler’s exam week, we wondered what the scene would be like at 3 a.m. and who would be up at that hour. So we sent photographer Zach Thomas (a Flagler graphic design alum who spent many of his own late nights working in the library’s graphic design lab) to check it out. What he found was a bustling, stress-filled library all throughout the night.
