IF YOU ARE A STUDENT OF FLAGLER COLLEGE
take a few moments to watch the video below.

(Copy and paste the link, please.)

The mission of Flagler states:

"The aim of Flagler College is to provide a supportive and challenging environment in which students acquire knowledge, exercise good citizenship, and adhere to high ethical standards."

IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE WEIGHT/VALUE OF YOUR DEGREE PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION.*

This video is an awful reflection of that statement, in fact, it makes our school look like a joke. Moreover, this video is insulting to all the alumni who have worked hard to earn their degree. Flagler is NOT some summer camp. There is no sense of prestige or the "challenging" environment that Flagler claims to have.


By signing this petition you are agreeing that this video is

1) A poor reflection of the College

2) The narrative of the college needs to be reevaluated

3) This video needs to be taken down and recreated

    As the creator of this video and many other videos for Flagler I feel the need to make some things clear that are definitely being misstated on this petition.
    While the budget of the project has nothing to do with the statements this petition is declaring, nor is it relevant, I can assure you that the numbers being thrown around in these comments are far from accurate. In addition, this video was created by recent Flagler graduates who put a lot of time and effort into creating something that hadn't been done before. It's easy to look back at something and say how it could be better, but there is always that first step which people are afraid to take. This is one of many videos created for Flagler. This one in particular was intended to be a reflection of the lighter side of campus with less attention to academics. There are some which only focus on academics. It is one of many and not necessarily meant to be used as the only reflection of who the College is. It has been understood for some time that a video which reflects all aspects of Flagler should be used as the centerpiece but everything takes time and patience.
    All of this being said, I completely understand your viewpoint and bringing all of this up reflects the integrity of the students, alumni, and staff, and how much everyone involved cares for Flagler College. I assure you that both us as a company and the administration have discussed these same concerns and are addressing them. This discussion has been going on well before this petition, but I'm sure that the administration would love to have your constructive feedback.
    Please keep in mind when making offhanded comments that there are real people involved in all of this and the use of baseless numbers and accusations can damage both feelings and reputations. We don't take anything like this lightly and I assure you neither does Flagler College. I would suggest donating your time and energy into helping create the video that you believe is a better overall representation of the College. That type of participation would be welcome, I assure you.

    The video had positive energy and good form; but no content.
