    Re the proposed secret plan for a UF campus in Jacksonville: It is not a new academic district, as it is actually by the location of Florida State College at Jacksonville’s downtown campus. There are some underutilized classroom buildings, homeless people nearby, a bus transportation station and a sometimes-malodorous sewage? processing plant not far away. I expect the vast majority of potential students from Jacksonville would rather the campus be built adjacent to UNF or FSCJ where highways allow for easy access from all over and greater integration with other programs can happen. This type of university would also require high-tech buildings.
