Florida Polytechnic Races To Be Ready by 2014
Florida’s 12th university still has to work out many details — school color and a mascot, for instance — before the first class is scheduled to arrive in 2014. School officials are considering free tuition to help lure students.
LAKELAND - The new Florida Polytechnic University has grand plans, starting with the main classroom building scheduled to open next year. It will have a domed glass atrium shaded by awnings that adjust with the sun. Students on the way to state-of-the-art laboratories will enter through arched entries with skylights.
