Florida International University is not labeled as a Predominately White Institution, nor is it labeled a Historically Black College or University. Florida International University is the definition of their name. Not having to feel that you're being put into a category but to be recognized as the differential cultures we bring to FIU campus is what I love about being there. People all different colors, shapes and sizes, from all different parts of the world attend my campus and are embraced. As not only a Black African-American, but also as a Dominican and Haitian, I feel right at home at FIU!

I love this university it was hard to be accepted actually but I just hope I can pay for it! Although this school has been my dream school and I’m grateful I’ve gotten the opportunity to be there student! I hope I get an opportunity to pay my tuition as well! Don’t over look FIU it’s an amazing university with very good education! Can’t wait to graduate from here and be able to look back and smile from all my achievements! They offer so many activities aside from education you can be part of the panther life, just by plugging in and joining during orientation is enough. Don’t wait last minute to enroll in such an amazing school!
