Don’t shelter yourself and live in your own bubble. Cast a wide net!

If you could share a piece of advice for a new student, what would it be?

Take risks and step out of your comfort zone! Study abroad, go and see the world, do it while you can! I studied abroad through Semester At Sea and it was my most impactful semester! Leave the dorm, and explore the world.

Our core values are Transformative Learning, Citizenship with Integrity, Thoughtful Stewardship, and Respectful and Inclusion Community. How have you contributed to these Core Values during your time at Flagler?
