Faculty positions for science departments? A tough sell. Staffing a day spa at FGCU? No problem!

Florida Gulf Coast University has figured out how to get its students prepared for the new economy:  Get them ready to work in a day spa!

The university has opened its own day spa, staffed by students who, like one interviewed for the article in the Fort Myers News-Press, has “chosen a spa management concentration for her resort and hospitality management major.”

I’m guessing that it’s easier for FGCU to recruit students who are well prepared by their high schools for the spa management concentration than it is to attract students who are likely to succeed in their engineering program.
