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.

How do you take a historic old building like Ponce Hall and get it wired for the information super highway? It takes a lot of cable. Try a mile of fiber optic cable and almost 17 miles of copper wiring. In 2003, the college installed a campus-wide internet system that brought even the oldest of Flagler’s buildings into the world of high tech. Flagler currently has a wireless, state-of-the-art technology system that serves students and faculty.
