Student Government president posts letter to students about incident
In late May a Florida Gulf Coast University student, who went out to enjoy an evening at a local bar, ended up with facial fractures after being beaten by a bouncer. The Student Government president, a friend of the injured man, alerted the FGCU community to the incident by posting a letter to his personal Facebook page.
Florida Gulf Coast University faces an ongoing expansion dilemma. Because it is contractually bound to preserve exactly half its 760 acres of land for conservation, only 380 acres of land are available for building. This past April, a local development company presented President Bradshaw with an offer by that would have almost doubled the amount of land FGCU owned. In May, Bradshaw surprised O. J. Buigas, chief executive officer of the prospective land donor Private Equity Group LLC, when he wrote that its 640-acre land donation proposal would not be put before the FGCU Foundation for a vote on June 5.
