"I graduated from Florida International University with a bachelors degree in International Relations. The university has a beautiful campus with a variety of places to study or eat. Also, the students and faculty are very respectful and helpful towards others. I would recommend FIU to those students who are interested in learning about different cultures due to the diversity of students. FIU has a great atmosphere and a lot of student organizations to get involved."

"FIU is the kind of school in which you can get lost and often you feel like you are just a series of numbers. It is up to each student to make the campus feel like home away from home, especially for the few that will be living out of the dorms. FIU is a very large university and is mostly a commuter school, which means that at the end of the day we pack up and go home, in most cases to our families. FIU is an incredibly strong university in terms of diversity, and I dare say that the least represented group is that of white, non-hispanics. This school provides you with a truly fantastic mixture of individuals from all paths of life, coming from countries most people have not even heard of before. FIU also tries to get students involved in anything and everything and this I truly recommend because it helps you find your niche and reduces the +56,000 students to just a few thousands. Professors are not looking to baby you and you will be held responsible for your shortcomings; however you will also be endlessly recognized for your successes. Professors will regard you as a fellow scholar if you give them reason to believe you truly are dedicated to your field. You will meet many graduate students and they will write the most amazing recommendation letters for you when the time comes. Students develop affinities for certain professors and are able to take as many classes with these scholars as they want. The curriculum is varied and there is no shortage of opportunities, but you have to want it and pursue it like your life depends on it. You must show yourself to be worthy of help and time, but that is just how life works. All in all, I love my school with all my heart."

"Florida International University is an amazing learning institution based in South Florida. The diversity of the student body, the welcoming environment, and the hard working faculty made my college experience an amazing one. FIU helped give me the tools I needed to finish my undergraduate and get accepted into law school with a scholarship. The present administration has continuously worked to see how they can make FIU a better university by incorporating more and more programs that benefit the students. FIU truly fits their motto of being "worlds ahead"."

"FIU was an overall fantastic university with opportunities for a wide variety of students. The faculty and staff is readily available to assist with both academic and professional endeavors. There are also many diverse organizations on campus that are great for networking. The resources available are also in abundance which made my experience that much better (i.e. library resources, financial resources, health resources, etc.) I would definitely recommend this university to anyone."

"FIU is a great institution, the teachers are amazing, the campus is beautiful, and the education is very affordable. It is a public school, there are lots of students enrolled and you really have to focus and be on top of your degree so you don't fall through the cracks, there is no babysitting there. However you take the good with the bad, the prices are more affordable than any other Universities in the area. If you do take out student loans you won't be drowning in them after you graduate. My particular degree wasn't geared towards a specific field so it's been more difficult for me to network and find the earning potential in it. However I'm a proud alumni and always will be. My degree has given me an opportunity to go into teaching which I love has become a passion for me. I chose a different school for graduate school simply because of convenience however I would attend FIU again in the future."
