The four coffee shops on campus aren’t among the 600 nationwide that will be shuttered.

Likely bolstered by a constant stream of caffeine-addicted college students, the University of Florida campus won't be affected by the shuttering of 600 underperforming Starbucks stores nationwide, the Independent Florida Alligator reports. While a shaky economy is forcing the ubiquitous coffee purveyor to downsize, the food distributor of UF was assured that the four locations on campus were safe from closure.

Not surprisingly, college students have been especially anxious about the news, but I suspect that most campus locations will be among the more than 15,000 stores left unaffected
