State funds shouldn't go to private university

UF has to cut $16 million come July 1, when officials project the total drop in recurring state support will be $47.2 million.Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University expects to lose another $4.6 million this year, and Florida State University anticipates a reduction of programs and a hiring freeze because of new cuts in the $16 million to $18 million range. The Board of Governors, facing $147 million in cuts to the state university system this year alone, gave university presidents the go-ahead last month to lay off faculty members, slash enrollment and take other actions to salvage their budgets.

There may be a logical explanation for why you woke up feeling like crap Tuesday. Yes, it did signal the end of the only long weekend we have until Spring Break, but it may very well be because the third week in January is among one of the most depressing of the year, according to a researcher from Cardiff University.

Machen's endorsement irresponsible, bad for UF

While it may not have been as glamorous or as influential as Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama - and certainly didn't receive as much media attention - UF President Bernie Machen's unusual public announcement that he would endorse Sen. John McCain for president this week did raise more than a few questions across campus.
