Florida International University has been an enriching and diversifying experience! I've come across many like-minded individuals who strive to take on every day challenges to accomplish what will someday become their future. From among those individuals I've made incredible friendships, and created not just a loyal but loving support group! College is a wonderful experience that has taught me to two great important lessons, to ask (it never hurts to reach out for help) and to fight for what you want to achieve. Once you've found the major for you its just a question of hard work, determination, and finding the right fit for you. Talk to your professors! Connect with them! Because you never know what opportunities might arise from that interaction! Keep a planner, meet up with your advisor (get to know them!), keep track of your credits, and honestly have fun! This is the time to expand your horizons, and find out who you really want to be! Make smart decisions and define your future!

Florida International university is an amazing school. They offer many opportunities for all sorts of students. The professors and the staff are extremely welcoming and make you feel like you're not alone. I absolutely love it here and I am so glad this is the school I chose to start my university experience. Like all the other schools they are not perfect. It is difficult to deal with the thousands of students that attend. However, in my opinion, your not just a number here. Your opinion and your voice counts and FIU does an outstanding job in making sure we all know it!
I have been a student at Florida International University since January 2019, and I started my first semester Summer 2019. I am going for my Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I love attending school at FIU. The staff, advisers, and professors are always helpful and friendly, and help with any questions and concerns. I do not receive financial aid because I do not qualify because I used all my financial aid towards another Bachelors degree. I have to pay for my classes out of pocket, which is hard as an out of state, online student with my temporary part-time job lasting through mid April. I will only barely be able to save for one class. I am trying to take two classes this coming summer. It would be a dream come true to win a scholarship to help pay for my summers tuition, so I can focus on taking my classes at FIU.


Thank you!
