Flagler makes Architectural Digest’s ‘50 Most Beautiful Colleges in America’

Nov 8, 2018

Architectural Digest Magazine has ranked Flagler College seventh on its new list of ‘50 Most Beautiful Colleges in America.’ Tops on the list was Yale University, and the list also included notable campuses like Princeton, Stanford, Georgetown, Notre Dame and many others.

“With their vast collections of buildings, it’s no wonder that college campuses are architectural gems,” the magazine said. “We’ve gone across the country to find the most beautiful college campuses in the United States, taking into consideration both architectural legacy and setting.”

The centerpiece of Flagler College is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, today a National Historic Landmark. It was built in 1888 by railroad pioneer and Standard Oil co-founder Henry Flagler.

This is not Flagler’s first appearance on a most beautiful colleges list: In recent years, it has been included in similar rankings by Travel + Leisure Magazine, Southern Living Magazine and Cosmopolitan.
