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.

Our Passport to Success

With this past spring commencement ceremony, Flagler graduated our 18,000 alumnus — a major milestone for our College. Flagler College’s graduating class of 2017- 2018 numbered 593 students. To put that into perspective, there were only 35 students in our first graduating class in 1972. We continue to attract top students and our students frequently compete for national awards, gain internships and jobs at top corporations, and are accepted to graduate programs around the world.
