Ghost Stories Of Flagler College

I believe in ghosts. Do you?

Ghost Stories Of Flagler College

There are two kinds of people: those who believe in ghosts and those who don't. Which one you are is none of my business. But, when you go to college in the oldest city in America, you see a thing or two that might change your mind. The following are stories from Flagler students about their encounters with the other side.

As if moving into dorms your freshman year isn't hard enough, why not add a spirit into the mix? That is exactly what happened to Cori Orcasitas her freshman year in the female dorms.

"When I was a freshmen, I lived in the dorms. One night while I was sleeping, my roommate said that she saw someone standing at the foot of my bed all in black. I wore a lot of black clothes so she assumed it was me and tried to get my attention. She said that the figure didn't move, didn't react to her talking, she just kept looking at me. From that moment forward, until I moved out of the dorms, this lady all in black just stood in the corner across from my bed. She never bothered me or made anything happen, but she always stared at me when I was sleeping/falling asleep at night."

The students aren't the only ones that have to handle the ghost around campus. Visitors have been given a nice showcase of what goes on in the old Ponce de Leon Hotel. May Cole recalls a time when her tour guests were so scared that they actually had to stop.

"One time I was giving a Legacy tour in the Flagler room. I was giving a life summary of Henry Flagler. Every time I said his name, the lights would flicker. A guest pointed this out to me, so I said his name one more time. As I said his name, the light above his painting went out. Guests were so scared they actually walked out of the tour."

Nothing is better than a good old-fashioned urban legend. Carlton Clinkscales recalls one famous one that he has heard as a student at Flagler College. He may have even have proof the legend has some truth behind it.

"Rumor has it that one day, a little boy was playing on the balcony in the rotunda, but somehow fell over the railing to his death. People have said they hear random stomping at night and believe it is the little boy's ghost that continues to play in the halls of Ponce. Even I have heard random stomping in Ponce from time to time during the later hours."

While I may not have any personal experience with the ghost roaming around campus, I have known people who have demanded to switch dorm rooms because of creepy occurrences. So, if you plan on living in Ponce, then be aware that you may have an extra roommate you weren't expecting.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
