In addition to Pollard Hall, visitors can also tour the studios of the Flagler College radio station, WFCF, where they can meet on-air personalities and even record their own voice for radio broadcast. Light refreshments will be served.

Pollard Hall replaces the college's communication building and is located at 31 Cordova St. Nelson Pollard provided the major gift for the construction of the new academic building, which will bear his family name.

The college offers 29 majors, 34 minors and two pre-professional programs, the largest majors being business, education and communication. Small by intent, Flagler College has an enrollment of about 2,500 students, as well as a satellite campus at Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee, Fla. A Flagler education is less than half the cost of similar private colleges, and competitive with many state universities. A relatively young institution (founded in 1968), Flagler College is also noted for its historic beauty. The centerpiece of the campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a grand resort built in 1888 by Henry M. Flagler, industrialist, railroad pioneer and co-founder of Standard Oil. The Ponce has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. For more on Flagler College, visit
