I spent most of my time in the graham center and in the library. There is a lot of school pride, but ONLY from the people that are involved in a club, organization or greek organization. I think that the school is getting very populated, so it will have to add more buildings, parking spots etc. I have high expectations for FIU. I think that it is a wonderful institution that can and will achieve great things. It has been able to offer new programs to the community such as, the Law School and the School of Medicine. This offers an GREAT education at a reasonable price, which is hard to find nowadays! There is something unusual about FIU, but it is the most incredible thing about it: FIU is TRULY DIVERSE! It is international, and people are tolerant of one another and this is a great thing.
Most professors do know their students by name. My favorite classes were my languages classes they were great because not only did I learn a lot but I enjoyed the classes. The professors made learning fun and exciting. My least favorite class was a geography course, but it was not because of the professor, but because I was not really interested in the material itself, but the professor made it tolerable and I still went to class all the time. Many FIU students to have intellectual conversations outside of class. There are many student activits that are also activists in the Miami community, and mnay started or met at FIU, so this is also something that FIU should be proud of! I do think that the academic requirements at FIU are at a great standard, and it did prepare me for the "real" world.
Most FIU students are local residents, but there are many international students. ALL the different students interact. There really isnt discrimination across groups. Students are open and welcome others very well. There are students from all Socio-economic backgrounds, but this is something that is embraced at FIU all its diversity.
The Best Things
