Florida International University Reviews
I am currently returning to Florida International University(FIU) in the fall as a sophomore. During the past year I've spent attending classes and living on campus, my experience has been amazing! The professors are all very nice and willing to help you if you are stuck or confused on a topic. The class sizes can be exceedingly large but the professors make an effort to learn most of the student's names throughout the semester. However, if you live on campus you'll be in for the best experience. Housing is nice and spacious. The rooms come with bathrooms en-suite. The residential assistances (RAs) are always around to lend a helping hand in any problem you have or just to have a talk. There are always events hosted by the housing department so you never feel alone on campus. Florida International University is located in the amazing city of Miami, Florida, therefore the local area has much to offer. Attending FIU was the best choice I ever made.
Overall, my experience at Florida International University was a positive one. I was able to meet all different kinds of professors and pupils from all different kinds of backgrounds and because of this I now consider myself a more insightful person. Not only has it been rewarding in the professional setting it has also been rewarding in the social setting. I have been able to meet people that I will consider friends for my entire life. My undergraduate experience at FIU has been so great I have decided to pursue graduate school at the university. One of the few things I would like to see the university change is the push within the athletics department. I believe the school has a great deal of talent in that regard and it should be exploited in the best way possible so that the school can shine from as many sectors as possible. Despite this, I cannot wait to return back to FIU and cheer on the university that has provided me with an outstanding education. Go Panthers!
Home of the Panther! FIU is a diverse university with many outside entertainments and school fundraising activities. Amazing, caring, professional educators who holds each student accountable for their work. Excuses are not tolerable at this university as each student is expected to deliver assignments on time or before any listed deadlines. The setting of the campus is beautiful, immaculate, and surrounded by various food locations. The campus is also enormous and can be difficult for students who are incapacitated or disabled to attend their classes on time. More elevators should be created to accommodate these students.
