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.

Florida International University is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Florida and, in my opinion, it deserves to be recognized among the best in the world. With a full pro-student position, I have found a wonderful welcome in this place. I can say that the faculty is majestic and I could mention many of them that have really taught me important aspects and values of life and have done it didactically. The comfort of its classrooms and the campus environment are elements of indescribable value. Within FIU, the honors college has become a great opportunity for my training as a more complete professional. THANKS, FIU!
I believe FIU alumni are the most successful students because of how FIU prepares its students for the work field. The Administration and Staff truly care about their students and want them to succeed. They encourage you to take what you learn in the classroom and apply it in real life through, clubs, organizations, and internships. The environment celebrates diversity and has students who desire to go above and beyond. I love FIU and am proud to be an FIU Panther!
