Flagler College is opening its doors to the public to unveil the latest addition to its campus: Pollard Hall, a new communications complex.
Guests are welcome to come and see the new academic building from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22. The 18,600 square-foot complex includes nine classrooms, five offices, a television studio and multiple common areas.
In addition to Pollard Hall, visitors will also have the chance to tour the studios of Flagler College’s radio station, WFCF, where they can meet on-air personalities and record their own voice for radio broadcast. Light refreshments will be served.
Nelson Pollard, a great-great-nephew of Henry M. Flagler, provided the major gift for the construction of the new academic facility, which will bear his family name. His brother, Lewis Pollard, is a member of the Flagler College Board of Trustees and has served as a board member since 1999.
Pollard Hall will replace the college’s communication building and is located at 31 Cordova St.
