This must be a very nice feather in Barron's cap. I think this shows that FSU is a responsible institution when it comes to expenses. FSU can be trusted with state and private dollars. FSU will have a positive impact when given the opportunity.
"One of Eric Barron's frequent talking points is Florida State's ability to make maximum use of a dollar. FSU's president has pointed repeatedly in recent months to the latest national rankings, which saw FSU climb to 97th place (from 101) in the country among all public and private universities, while slipping from 204 to 212 in funding.Barron's message received a noteworthy endorsement this week as US News listed FSU atop its latest list of top universities that operate efficiently, spending $17,731 per student ? almost three grand less than No. 2 Brigham Young University ($20,441). "It's an amazing compliment to how the university runs itself and what our faculty does to deliver for our students," Barron said. "Can you imagine what we would do with an extra dollar? We would put it to good use."

thats great to see! This should help Barron greatly as he works towards the billion dollar goal for the big ideas campaign.

This is a very nice feather in the cap for Florida State! The number one University in the nation for efficiency says a lot. Doing more with less. And, Barron's statement . . . imagine what we could do with more . . . is on point.
Congratulations to FSU . . . faculty and staff. Many are underpaid and have limited resources available to them, and are still outperforming their peers. Congrats to the students as well.

Wow, Brick. Clearly that's the reason - or that the Mayan calendar is ending.
