TALLAHASSEE - An airport lounge supported by Florida A&M University has closed.
The lounge at Tallahassee Regional Airport, which is near the university, had to be cleared of its furnishings, artwork and guest book by May 1.
A contract with Florida A&M, the state's only historically black public university, began in September 1999 and was set to expire in April 2008, but the airport agreed to release the school from the contract, said Victoria Maleszewski, acting business services manager for the airport. Maleszewski and university spokeswoman LaNedra Carroll said they had received calls and e-mails from the public asking for an explanation.
"At this point, the university is exploring its options, " Carroll said. She didn't know who made the decision to end the lease.
