I drove up to University of Florida. It looked just like my high school — a giant football facility with a small academic institution
Apparently, University of Florida thought this was a compliment. Forbes reports (via) that University of Florida has eliminated research & graduate work in its Computer Science department, while simultaneously significantly increasing funding for athletics.
A clarification missing from the Forbes article: UF is eliminating research and graduate work in its computer science department, just like it did for its nuclear engineering department the year prior. The departments will remain as severely gimped teaching-only undergraduate departments… not unlike a glorified community college.
Keep it real University of Florida!
