Great school! Highly recommended. I had the opportunity to learn so many things and it was great to meet so many people! The campus is really big and at first it took me a while to find my way. They have a lot of food options, so I never really got bored. They have free tutoring for students, which helped me a lot, specially for math. I know that they also added a game room so that students can hang out and it really helped me with the stress, so that was great. There are many good teachers and they are also super smart. Go to class and ask questions if you need to as well.
Review Florida International University
I lived on campus and attended FIU for four years. I finished with two bachelor's degrees with honors and participated in a competing a cappella group, all for free! Not only does FIU have great resources to help you find your passion and your path, but it also provides you with the funds to do so. I did not have to take out a single penny in loans for my education and I have to thank FIU for that. An amazing school with great connections and an active alumni base.
FIU is a great school! The campus was a little difficult to get used to at first but once you get accustomed to it, its great. There are plenty of food options, although sometimes it feels as if there aren't enough healthy options. There's plenty to do throughout the academic year as far as activities goes. There are a couple of malls and movie theaters pretty close by too! Overall, i'd say its a pretty great school!
