I have the greatest affinity for FIU. Ever since I came to this institution I have become a top student leader and I have had countless opportunities and experiences and I love FIU for that! I currently am frustrated with the cost of housing however, I do understand that housing is not funded by the school and it is self-efficient, however, the cost is way too high! I struggle financially as it is so I wish they'd invest in ways to make housing more cost effective. Other than that I absolutely love it here!
Review Florida International University
Florida International University was not my first choice. It was actually my last resort type of thing because I live and grew up in a house that is 5 minutes away from FIU. So in my senior year of high school I just wanted to leave Miami. To this day, I am so grateful for staying in Miami and staying in this institution because it has a lot to offer. Between its' great diversity, comfortable campus, multiple dining options, and campus life, I find myself being excited for my remaining years at Florida International University. "I like my F in front of my I, that ain't no lie! I like my I in front of my U, that's how we do! We're repping FIU!"
My experience at Florida International University has been nothing short of pleasant, professional and prosperous! I genuinely look forward to learning every single day in such a mature and positive environment that serves as a home to students aspiring to become greater versions of themselves.
