In one of his first duties as Florida State University’s President, John Thrasher appeared before the Florida Cabinet Wednesday. The Cabinet approved a land swap to build a new business and hospitality school.
Thrasher is pushing a plan for FSU to acquire a parcel of land next to the Tallahassee Civic Center in exchange for a handful of other lots and nearly a million dollars in cash. On the undeveloped plot of land known as the O’Connell property, FSU plans to build a new College of Business. Thrasher says much of the funding will be private.
