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.

I am currently a student with FIU Online in the Early Childhood Education program. Even without being face-to-face with classmates and professors, I am able to communicate easily and frequently because of the online resources through FIU! I speak daily with my classmates and professors via discussion boards and email, and there is always someone available to ask questions, discuss topics, and offer study advice! I feel very much a part of the FIU community, even from hundreds of miles away from my peers!
Great school, nice campus. They're trying to become one of the top colleges in the US and I see them getting there, they just need to weed out the bad professors. It sucks that for some classes you're stuck taking the bad professor because they're the only one teaching that class or online section. FIU should take a look at their professors on ratemyprofessor.com, I've seen professors with ratings of 1... although I'd say 3/4ths of them are 3 and above. Other than that, really great school and good looking for the low tuition!
