No one will argue that Flagler College, a four-year private liberal arts college in downtown St. Augustine, has the most unique and eye-catching campus. Much of the college is located in what was the Hotel Ponce de Leon, the flagship hotel of Standard Oil magnate and Florida developer Henry M. Flagler.
Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the college grants bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts and bachelor of science in public administration degrees. External programs are offered through the college’s upper division in Tallahassee.
Majors range from accounting to theater arts. Intercollegiate sports for men and women are available as well as a number of extracurricular activities and clubs.
“Our campus is a vibrant place with more than 2,500 students representing 47 states and more than 20 foreign countries,” said Flagler President William T. Abare Jr. “Not only do students come to Flagler to earn a degree, but they also come to have an ‘educational experience,’ one that is enriched by the size of our college, the quality of our programs and services, the commitment of our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, and the ideal location in St. Augustine — the Nation’s Oldest City.”
