"F.I.U. is an amazing institution. It is well-maintained, has an amazing library, all the resources you could possibly need in terms of personnel and classes, as well as a huge campus to house it all. My favorite thing about F.I.U. was the amazing professors that not only instructed me during class time, but also took the time to advise me of touch ups on my assignments or to catch up on a class that I missed. Across the board, excellence was the name of the game amongst them, without a doubt.Before my enrollment into F.I.U., I had only received praises of the University as most of my cousins had graduated from the institution, two of them with Masters degrees no less. I graduated from F.I.U. with my Bachelors in History and a minor in Criminal Justice and I had never met a more knowledgeable cadre of professionals that were so willing to assist me every step of the way. Additionally, the entire campus and its facilities have this air of freedom and professionalism around them. Definitely the place to be if you are pursuing higher education.My one complaint about F.I.U. would be that I would've wished there was a more comprehensive way to receive direct employment assistance within your major so that the transition between school life and work life would be a bit easier, however, this is something that they tend to offer at the graduate level."

"This institution is amazing. I am extremely grateful I attended FIU for my undergraduate degree and will be continuing into a graduate degree as soon as I could solve the financial responsibilities to cover it. Great professors, great faculty, great resources. FIU strives to help its students be Worlds Ahead in everything they do. I am a proud FIU Panther. I graduated from Florida International University with a bachelors degree in Information Technology. 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 a great school. I loved my time there. The school is beautiful, with large buildings and amazing landscaping. There are plenty of comfortable areas to study, and sit down to enjoy a snack or a meal. The only negative comment I have to make is about the parking situation. Although there are a lot of parking spaces, there are even more students. And when you do find a parking space, you have to walk for at least 10 minutes to class...and in the endless summer here in south Florida, it is not pleasant. The teachers are very good, and the classroom are great with awesome technology. And the green Library is the best one I have every seen, with 8 floors with designated study areas. Food it is expensive, like in any other university campus."

"FIU offers a lot of opportunity with certain professor. As a transfer student I didn't receive the benefits of starting with the school. I strongly believe that FIU cares about the students but they put little enfaces on the academics, the only class where they do is Design and it all depends on what professor you get assigned. Also the professors for tesis are chosen for you and you could get one that you really don't like. A class that FIU offers is IBS and Comprehensive, it's a great course and it should'd be done in only one semester it should be done every semester so by the end of you school you will be completely prepared for a job."

"You get what you put into. If you really want to learn you need to dive in and seek help from the faculty and graduate assistants. Faculty is very well prepared and are willing to assist students to achieve their maximum potential; however, it is up to each individual student to ask for guidance."

"I love everything about it except that 13 differential credits we have to take for no reason except spend more money on education like we dont already spend enough. Other than that architectural classes are perfectly fine, we have amazing alumni and I thank them all for the help and effort they put to change us in a very much better way!"

"As a Master of Architecture three year track students should be aware that this is a very intense program. They will have to dedicate all their time for school specially for the first year making it really hard to work at the same time. Time management is crucial. For the most part, I feel we had very good instructors and useful classes."

"FIU SOA lives and breathes diversity. There is a beautiful culture where everyone helps each other better themselves. Of course there is competition but its healthy competition. The relationship with the professors are amazing as you always see them on a personal basis if need be. That's one of the main things that allows us to flourish."

"Great teachings and alot of variety of studies in the field and other topics in Architecture. Great environment to study for any quiz, test, or work in groups on projects. Great atmosphere to study, collaborate, get involve, look for work, and great feedback from a majority of the professors."

"I feel that professors are not strict enough and let students pass for doing unsatisfactory work. It creates a bad learning environment because they lower the standards of how much we’ll learn and what quality of work is expected from us. The professors are generally not good role models and tell students to go learn material online and on YouTube because they lack knowledge in that field. I am rather upset with my education at the end of the day."

Some professors were not fully equipped to teach the classes that they were in charge of and this was a huge disappointment in some occasions."
