Florida Polytechnic opens to the public today

Posted: Updated:

Florida's newest University is finally opening its doors to the public today.

Florida Polytechnic sits right along I-4 in Polk County, and features one of the most unique buildings in Tampa Bay.

It's called the Innovation, Science, and Technology Building.

If you've driven down I-4 through Polk County, you can't miss the massive white structure on the side of the road.

The school will hold a ceremony and an open house for the public today starting at 9:30 a.m. and it ends at 11:30 a.m.

There will even be a special pyrotechnic display over a nearby lake.

Several local officials will be there, along with Governor Rick Scott.

The campus opens for students next week, and the first day of classes is August 25th.
