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!
