New name, new identity

A Florida community college is changing its name — and offering 10 bachelor’s degrees, dorms,  intercollegiate athletics and study-abroad opportunities. The newly named Florida SouthWestern State College also will recruit “brighter” applicants and out-of-state students. State universities aren’t happy about the competition.
