Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, during its orientation week inspired new students at convocation on Wednesday, August 27, 2014. 

The convocation speaker was Rev. Wayne Meisel, Director of the Center for Faith and Service at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. 

"When you come here, you come having accomplished much and then you hit the delete button and start over," said Meisel, who invoked the late Robin Williams, urging students to seize the day. "You are the leaders of tomorrow only if you wait. Don't wait."
