University of Florida wants to embark on $2 billion growth spurt
Plans include new honors college, athletic dorms, more
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The University of Florida wants to embark on a growth spurt.
Florida's flagship university is hoping to spend around $2.2 billion in the next decade.
The Gainesville Sun reports the university's capital improvement plans include a new honors college, athletic dorms, a new student health facility, academic buildings and a landscaping plan that would change the face of the university.
But getting the money will be a challenge.
University of Florida President Kent Fuchs says there isn't enough money in the bank to make the plans happen overnight.
The growth plans coincide with the school's efforts to become a national Top 5 public university.
