Third College Tour Done

Third School - Flagler College in downtown St. Augustine, about two hours north of us. It's the smallest of the three schools he's looked at so far and has a great sports management program as well as communications/broadcast journalism, both of which are fields Parer is considering. 

Backside of Ponce and Kenan buildings from the parking lot. 


We met with two folks from the admissions department, got a welcome bag and listened to a presentation about the school before being sent off on a tour with our own student ambassador. Most of the campus centers around a single city block but there are other parts extending a few blocks away. 

This tall building was built by Edison to power the Ponce De Leon hotel with electricity!

One of the newer dorms on campus. 

This is the largest building on campus - the former Ponce De Leon hotel built by Henry Flagler in 1888. It serves now as the main dormitory, dining hall and has some classrooms and meeting spaces. 

Inside the lobby! The women's lobby bathroom has a huge fireplace. 

After the tour was over we walked back up to get a picture of Parker by the sign. 

This rotunda is the dining hall with the world's largest single collection of Tiffany stained glass windows.  

It was a good tour and we could see Parker doing well here. There's an amazing campus ministry in town too for Methodist students across several different school campuses.
