Flagler College

Flagler College Founded in 1968, Flagler College aims to provide a supportive and challenging environment in which students acquire knowledge, exercise good citizenship, and adhere to high ethical standards.
Founded in 1968, Flagler College has experienced 42 years of providing a rich liberal arts education in a small, supportive environment. Its heritage, however, extends back more than a century. The school’s historic campus resides just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of St. Augustine, Fla., the oldest city in the United States. The college is named after Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and oil magnate. In 1888, he built the luxury resort Hotel Ponce de Leon, which now serves as a residence hall and centerpiece for the college. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, Ponce de Leon Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The grand hotel launched the careers of famous architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings. Thomas Edison personally helped make Ponce the first building in Florida wired with electricity, and Louis Comfort Tiffany decorated the building’s interior with stained glass, mosaics and several commissioned murals. The hotel was sold to Flagler College when the institution was founded in 1968. Since then, the college has spent more than $43 million dollars restoring the historic campus and adding new buildings. One of the latest additions to campus is a multimillion-dollar Student Center on Sevilla Street. The college has also developed a 19-acre athletic field just two miles from campus. Lawrence Lewis, Jr., Henry Flagler’s principal heir, was the driving force behind the development of Flagler College. The philanthropist envisioned a small, private liberal arts college on the grounds of the magnificent old hotel. The school opened as a women’s college, and it was reorganized as coeducational in 1971. Lewis served as chairman of the Board of Trustees of Flagler College during these formative years, from 1968 to 1988. The college has grown with time, but it maintains a commitment to high educational standards within a close-knit community.

Hi there! My fiancé and I are getting married here on the beach on November 24th. I am looking to find someone who can play the ukulele for a couple hours for us on that day. The two songs specifically are Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Even more awesome if you can sing too!! Lol.. But mostly need the music... Please get back to me if you think you can help or know someone else who plays. Thank you in advance! ☺️
Anyone looking for a place to rent? We have an awesome place that will be available on Jan 1, 2020. One of the current Flagler College students is renting from us and we would love to find another student (or two, as there are two bedrooms).
