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.

You Got Male

In 1971, the College actively started recruiting male students. This move was desperately needed to keep the College alive by expanding its recruiting base. Today out of a total student population of over 2,500, more than 30 percent are men, proving that the X chromosome plus the Y chromosome is a formula for success.
