FSU's President, T.K. Wetherell says desperate times require desperate measures. He just wrapped up a news conference to talk about measures the university will have to take because of Gov. Charlie Crist's recent veto of a five percent tuition increase.
FSU's President says the veto of the five percent tuition increase forces FSU to take aggressive action. That includes freezing enrollment. Last year, the University enrolled about 6,300 freshmen, 1,000 of which were not funded.
The president says under the circumstances, only about 20 percent of those who applied will be accepted next year. His motto for the day was: "Something has to give."
Other changes will be cutting library hours, and reduced hours for student computing labs. Other universities are considering their options, including the University of Florida.
