WEST PALM BEACH, FL. - Four new private partners have lined up to help keep Florida State's film school in downtown West Palm Beach.
That's according to FSU President Eric Barron, who spoke at the state university system Board of Governors meeting Thursday morning.
Barron asked the board of governors to support FSU staying in West Palm Beach.
The board said it will start studying the proposal Friday but didn't give a time table on a decision, saying it will work quickly because it is a time sensitive decision.
Since Digital Domain filed for bankruptcy last year, FSU lost its private partnership that was supposed to help build a visual effects university at the corner of Okeechobee Boulevard and Dixie Highway
The land of the proposed project has now been given back to the city of West Palm Beach.
