There is a dedicated ‘First Year Experience (FYE) Program’ aimed to aid the transition of new students into a campus community and help achieve academic success and personal development of every student. The first year program integrates new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the college, introduces students to a challenging academic community in which they engage in active learning, and fosters a collaborative campus environment in which students receive personalized support from faculty, staff and administrators. Every college department promotes these goals and is dedicated to working together to ensure that during their first year Flagler students become active, vital members of the college community.
Not only do students choose Flagler to earn a degree, but they also go to have an “educational experience,” one that is enriched by the size of the college, the quality of the programs and services, the commitment of the talented and dedicated faculty and staff.
Flagler College is consistently recognized by a variety of respected publications and journals as being one of the best college values in the nation.
