Flagler College-Tallahassee Top Questions

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


Attending college has changed my life. Two years I was stuck in an abusive relationship and living hundreds of miles away from my family and friends. I was stuck in a dead end job that gave me no sense of pride or self worth. At the age of twenty two, I felt myself being sucked into a life that I knew that I didn't want but I had no means or strength to make a change. One night, my boyfriend took the abuse too far and I wasn't sure that I was going to survive. I knew that if I kept going the way that I was that I wouldn't be around to see my next birthday. The next week, I secretly applied to the Education Program at Flagler College. I was accepted. This moment and decision has changed my life forever. Going back to college and getting my degree not only took me out of a downward spiralling job and relationship but has opened my eyes to what I can achieve in life if I try. I am graduating with a 4.0 in May of this year. I never thought that could've been possible.
