FAU in Fort Lauderdale

Boca Raton-based Florida Atlantic University is shuttering its downtown Fort Lauderdale campus, the South Florida Business Journal reported. The downtown campus, which teaches courses in architecture and design, will close by June 2013 in a cost-cutting move aimed at saving just under $2 million. The school will also be shutting down a campus in Port St. Lucie this year. Last year, the school opened a new $70 million football stadium on its Boca Raton campus. [SFBJ]
