Personally for me FIU is close to home which is really good. As for the size of the school I think its small for the amount of students there is, but yes its a gorgeous campus. When I tell people that I go to FIU, most people react normal, I mean in Miami FIU and UM are like the only majors universities so not much to react for. I spend most of my time on campus especially since I have join Alpha Kappa Psi and ASB. I think that the FIU administration is not doing is job the right or efficient way, especially the financial aid office as well as the registrar office, I mean they seem to always take forever to get things done. The biggest recent controversy on campus has been the budget cuts. That money is really important especially now that we are entering summer, and like most know, most students do not get any type of financial aid before, and perhaps those that did won't get it. I feel that there is not much school pride as there should especially because a lot of students are commuter students and not much these students can participate in; since most work and just come to campus to take the classes and leave. If i can name one thing that I would change it would be parking: its horrible.
My favorite classes are my psychology courses that im taking, they are awesome. Least favorite classes are anything with math, because FIU does not have really good math professors. In my classes class participation is common we seem to be pretty competitive at what we do. I think like everything we have professors that are horrible just like we have professors that are awesome, no one school is perfect, so FIU has pretty good professors for the most part. I think FIU education is competitive and at the same geared more toward being able to receive a job. I alsi wanted to add that we have an awesome Career services department that are always there to help out in all aspects, from resume critiques to businees etiqutte dinners, internships, mock trials, yep they are wonderful! I also want to mention that FIU has wonderful and always there to help academic advisers, yes they are awesome as well!
I have not had ant type of bad experiences with any type of religious, LGBT, or any other groups etc. And since most of the students at FIU are ethnically diverse we have all types of student interactions.
