The Story Of Flagler College’s First 50 Years Told Through The People, Places And Things That Shaped It

Each of the 50 people, places and things that we selected represent a major milestone in the development of Flagler College. Our selections include the expected and the unexpected, ordinary, everyday objects and the extraordinary people that helped us turn nouns into verbs and change lives. Together, they tell our story. But it is not the complete story. Like all milestones, they indicate how far we have come. They do not measure the thousands of stepping stones, those everyday moments, the hard work and dedication, that got us to those key celebrated moments in our rich history.

It's Only Natural

Flagler College’s unique Coastal Environmental Science Major taps into St. Augustine’s abundant natural resources, turning local marshes, waterways and coastlines into living classrooms. The program gives students a strong sense of diverse environmental coastal issues, and lets students take advantage of the research and educational resources throughout the area. Hands-on field
research offers students career paths in vital fields of science that affect our world. Additionally, the College’s undergraduate research program encourages students from all academic majors to dive deeper into topics that interest them. They publish papers, present at national conferences, exhibit nationally and internationally and, yes, win awards.
