TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida A&M University's accreditation has been reaffirmed for another 10 years by a regional accrediting body.

On Tuesday, FAMU President, Dr. Larry Robinson, announced that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmed FAMU’s accreditation for another 10 years during its annual conference in New Orleans. 

“This is a testament to the hard work and preparation of our faculty, staff and students,” said Robinson. “I would like to thank SACSCOC, FAMU’s Board of Trustees, our SACSCOC Leadership Team and all stakeholders in Tallahassee and campuses in Crestview, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando and Tampa for their support throughout this rigorous process. This is an example of the collaborative spirit and great achievement, and outcome that we want each and every time.” 

As part of the reaffirmation process, FAMU also developed a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), “Write On FAMU.” This new QEP is designed to enhance the writing skills of students through strategic initiatives and investments in resources and infrastructure.

After its review, the on-site committee did not have any recommendations for FAMU, which is the most favorable outcome that a university can receive from an on-site review by the SACSCOC.

Meet The Black Architect Who Designed Duke University 37 Years Before He Could Have Attended It

In 1902, when Julian F. Abele graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in architecture, he was the school’s first-ever black graduate. The debonair Philadelphia-born architect went on to design hundreds of elegant public institutions, Gilded Age mansions, and huge swathes of a prestigious then-whites-only university’s campus.

Yet the fact that an African-American architect worked on so many significant Beaux Arts-inspired buildings along the East Coast was virtually unknown until a political protest at Duke, the very university whose gracious campus he largely designed, was held in 1986.

Abele’s contributions were not exactly hidden—during that era it was not customary to sign one’s own designs— but neither were they publicized. When he died in 1950, after more than four decades as the chief designer at the prolific Philadelphia-based firm of Horace Trumbauer, very few people outside of local architectural circles were familiar with his name or his work.

In 1942, when the long-practicing architect finally gained entry to the American Institute of Architects, the director of Philadelphia’s Museum of Art, a building which Abele helped conceive in a classical Greek style, called him “one of the most sensitive designers anywhere in America.”

In addition to the regular mail carrier, there are deliveries being made by additional carriers. I see those carriers rolling past my home 3 and 4 time a day delivering packages. If they would organize their package deliveries like they do the mail, it would be more efficient. #ijs


A divided U.S. appeals court has refused to immediately allow the Trump administration to enforce a ban on asylum for any immigrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

Politics / Trump On Coming Debt Crisis: I Won’t Be Here When It Blows Up

Doing the Russian's bidding. He could give a fk less about this country.


On the day Donald Trump became president of the United States, while inauguration festivities were still in full swing, he officially launched his 2020 reelection campaign. Donations poured in from more than 50,000 people across the country. But according to the latest federal filings, Trump still has not donated a penny of his own, while his businesses continued to charge the campaign for hotels, food, rent and legal consulting. That means the richest president in American history has turned $1.1 million from donors across the country into revenue for himself.

It wasn’t always this way. From April 2015 to June 2016, Trump put $50 million of his own money into his campaign, while running a famously frugal operation. When outsiders started paying the vast majority of his expenses in July 2016, he loosened the purse strings a bit, funneling more money to his own companies and stemming his personal losses. Now that he is apparently not donating anything to the 2020 effort, Trump seems to be getting a small payback on his investment.

Trump Tower Commercial LLC, an entity owned 100% by the president, has charged the reelection campaign $665,000 in rent, according to federal filings. The Republican National Committee also coordinated with the campaign to pay an additional $225,000 in rent. Campaign representatives did not respond to requests for comment, and an RNC official declined to answer questions about the payments, leaving it unclear exactly how much space they leased inside Trump Tower.

But it appears to be plenty. Leading up to the 2016 election, the president’s campaign paid an average of $2,700 in monthly Trump Tower rent for every person listed in campaign filings as receiving a “payroll” payment. The 2020 operation, by contrast, is shelling out an average of $6,300 in monthly rent for every such person.

Then there are the payments flowing into Trump Plaza LLC, a Trump-owned entity that has taken in $42,000 of campaign money since November 2017. Although federal filings list the purpose of those payments as “rent,” it is difficult to tell what the campaign is actually renting. Trump Plaza LLC controls a retail space, garage and two brownstones near Third Avenue in New York City. The retail space at Trump Plaza shows no signs of campaign activity, and a non-Trump company seems to sub-lease the garage from Trump Plaza LLC—leaving just the two brownstones. But they are not open to the public, making it difficult to see who the tenants are, and whether they include the president’s campaign.



His typo-ridden rant bashed key figures from Bruce Ohr to Rod Rosenstein.

Like a man whose goose is cooked...

Rudy Giuliani actually just admitted Mueller's questions were 'a nightmare' for Trump — and that he can't 'control' the president
