Party Scene: It's college...there are going to be parties no matter where you go. The tour guides tell you that Flagler's not a party school, but it is. The parties may not be that good, but there are still parties. If you can get in, Centros is the hotspot for freshman. Locals is a joke, but all the freshman go there for the first month. There are always parties on the weekends, even during finals week, but they can be hard to get to if you don't have a car, so you can bet you'll be spending about $20 on a taxi when you do decide to go to a party. MLK Street always has house parties, but it can be sketchy at night, so be careful. As a college student, school should be your priority, but if you like to party every now and then, this school would be a good choice; for those who do nothing but party, I would suggest going to UNF.

Greek Life: I only know of one sorority on campus and that's Phi Alpha Omega. It's just a bunch of snotty girls who pretend to be friends while simultaneously spread rumors about each other. Also, it costs a lot of money to be in a sorority, so I would suggest throwing the idea of joining the Greek life out the window because it's practically non-existent at Flagler.

Off-Campus Housing: If you don't have a car, off-campus housing around town is pretty hard to come by because everyone else is trying to save money on gas and be close by. However, if you have money to blow, housing by the beach is pretty dope, especially for those who love to surf. Honestly, on-campus housing is pretty bad, so off-campus as an upperclassmen is definitely your best bet if you can afford it and have a car. The main problem with driving to class is that there are no close, free parking spots, so you are guaranteed to have to pay a meter at least twice a week or pay the parking ticket. There's really no solution to the housing situation because it's all out-dated and there are no good parking spots.

Off-Campus Dining: Considering it's a tourist town, there is an unlimited amount of touristy restaurants. The majority of the places have a 10% off student discount, but one of the negatives of it being a tourist area is the high priced food. Nonetheless, there are so many different places, and there are always new restaurants every semester that replace the not-so-good ones. After a while, you find your favorite places. For example, Pizzalleys, Burger Buckets, Fiesta Jacks, and Taco Shop are the top hot spots for college students. With the poor dining hall options, you are guaranteed to eat at least three times at each of these places throughout the school year.

Administration: I understand that it is, according the to law, illegal to drink under the age of 21, but the college is super strict because they outlaw alcohol completely. Even if you are 21 and over, you can get kicked out of school for possession of alcohol. Also, they are very strict with visitors, despite the fact that there are tourists around 24/7. In the future, they are allowing some interhall visitation, but there are very strict hours. Overall, the rules here are oppressive--it's like living with your parents in high school all over again, as if 4 years wasn't enough.

Scholarships: I really like my financial advisor. He knows how to do his job exceptionally well. When my scholarship amount came back lower than what I needed, he was able to direct me on how to apply for loans and appeal for more money, which I got in the end. He is available when I need him, which is important because time is a valuable thing, especially during finals week. The only thing I don't like is how strict some scholarships and grants can be, but I understand that that's not really the college's doing. Nonetheless, the financial aid is always there to help you when you need it, and they do their job well.

Campus Food: For the most part, I avoid going to D-Hall at all costs. However, your wallet runs dry after eating off campus every time that D-Hall sucks, so you eventually have to eat at the dining hall. Every now and then, the dining hall will have a good day--mostly Fridays because they have chicken nuggets that are edible--but those days are rarer than a triple rainbow. You can rely on pizza, cookies, and the sandwich line to be decent, but after having the same thing at every meal for three weeks, it can get old. Nonetheless, there is always cereal and a salad bar. Also, the vegetarian section can be good every now and then. In the end, I would recommend keeping a loaf of bread and some peanut butter to make sandwiches in your dorm for when the dining hall closes early and on the days that even the thought of D-Hall makes you want to hurl.

Campus Housing: Residence Life is a joke at this school. Why fill out an application of your likes and dislikes if Residence Life is just going to pair you with someone who is nothing like you? I don't understand the method to their madness (if there even is one). The Residence Advisors are friends with the head of Residence Life, so they prioritize their friends and give them the best rooming situations. When it comes to the rooms, 9 times out of 10, the paint on the walls will be peeling, there will be cracks in the ceiling, the shower will turn itself on, it will be too hot or too cold, and rats will crawl under the door. To vouch for that, I can tell you all that I had a rat crawl on my face at 3 in the morning, and my friend had a rat in her bed on two different occasions.

Despite the less-than-desirable living situation, the area around the school is okay. There is lots to do for the party-goers as well as the anti-socials. After a while, the amount of tourists blocking the way to class can get old really quick. The area is beautiful, though the weather can be bipolar at times. If you have a car, I suggest not bringing it because parking is awful and the roads are always crowded with traffic from the bridge. If you are one for walking and old-fashioned life, then St. Augustine is the place for you. If you enjoy your independence and technology, I would advise you to go to school elsewhere.

Athletics: We don't have a football team. Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, Volleyball, and Softball are the only varsity sports we have, but we are pretty decent. Fan support depends on the sport. There isn't always a lot of school spirit but when we have our fairs everyone comes out and participates.

Off-Campus Dining: Taco Shop will become your new best friend. It's a little expensive but you are getting a ton of food!

Administration: Next year they are making a few of the dorm halls with co-visitation. It's a dry campus though, so no alcohol.

Scholarships: I had a little problem getting the money in the beginning but they worked with me.

Campus Food: Not the best, but certainly fine if you can't afford to go out and eat for every meal.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything about living on campus is fantastic! The building itself is stunning!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Wish the varsity sports were more of a big deal here

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is much better than on campus housing. Some places near the school are a little dumpy but Las Palmas is an amazing apartment place with affordable rents and close proximity to campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love off campus food options, but the town needs more student discounts! We don't have a lot of money you know!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I love the administration here even though you rarely bump into them. They're pretty strict on inter dorm visitation but I think that's easing up this year

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I love to be social and a lot of other kids at Flagler do too, but there's a huge chunk that don't choose to go out. The party scene is kept at a minimum. Some like it that way and others leave because of it. I'm not a huge partier but when I do like to go out with friends I like to have some fun! Acapulco is about the only place to go around here that plays good dance music and has good deals

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Easy to apply for scholarships and they school is more than willing to help

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dhall food is okay, mainly eaten because it's convenient and already paid for. The student center has Chik fil a where many students choose to eat

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay, but may need to be renovated because the carpets are old. The roommates you are assigned are picked at random. Some girls had only 1 roommate while others had 3

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The landlords kick people out frequently

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I spent all my money on my meal plan so I have very little money to spend elsewhere.
