Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with the stadium.

Creative accounting anyone?  ;D

I kid, I kid. Last thing we need is that kind of crap.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

To say the least. This is amazing, really. $173 million, and it's going to faculty raises (which we need), new equipment (which we need) and so on? Yes please.

Hopefully this can net us more faculty so we can increase our freshmen class as well. We took on 2550 when others in state were taking on over 5000. That helps our student body swell and benefits our popularity (since everyone wants to go where their friends are going) but not our parking.

Well, two out of three ain't bad.

Here is another article about it. At the bottom is the plan for the funds.

The title says $171M then in the body of the article it states $173M

There has been a few more articles on this today and at least two start out "Cash strapped Florida Atlantic University……"

That sort of makes it sound like FAU is the only one pinching pennies right now.
