Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL
Flager usually has around 2,500 students enrolled at once, so it is not a massive institution, but rather an institution of amazing art and design. Flagler College has an impressive campus fit into just 19 acres, which houses a diverse student body right next to the many historical buildings, museums, and tourist attractions in the city.
The heart of Flagler College is within the Ponce De Leon hotel, which was built as a luxury hotel. It was designed in a beautiful Spanish Renaissance style, and has fountains, carved woodwork, beautiful masonry, and Tiffany stained glass windows. There are enough mosaics and wall paintings to satisfy any art lover. The buildings are open to public viewing and daily tours are given by students for a fee. Everyone who visits St. Augustine should definitely take a tour of the location.
Flagler College is definitely a centerpiece of St. Augustine, along with the Castillo de San Marcos Fort, which is nearby. The fantastic architecture of the Ponce De Leon hotel fits right in with the old colonial style of historical St. Augustine, and should not be missed.
St. George Street and many shops, art galleries, bed and breakfasts, museums, and restaurants are nearby so any visit to Flagler College will be just the beginning of a great day.
