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.

Breakfast of Champions

It isn’t every day that that you get your picture on a box of cereal, but Flagler’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team did it. Landing on boxes of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, Rice Krispies and Eggo Waffles after winning the SIFE National Championship in 2004. They also landed in Barcelona, Spain, representing the U.S. in the SIFE World Cup and finishing second in the world. What’s even more remarkable is what they had to do to get there. Competing against over 800 colleges, including institutions like Carnegie Mellon, Boston College and the University of Florida in a grueling series of presentations judged by the top business executives in the country. They have since won two additional national titles and 20 regional competitions. SIFE, today called Enactus, joins another award-winning Flagler student organization, SAM (Society for the Advancement of Management) which has won an unprecedented 10 national championships, which no other university or college has achieved.
