WHAT I LIKED

Florida International University is a place that feels like home. It is a university that welcomes you with open arms and provides you with amazing experiences, support, resources, and guidance. I like how warm and kind people are and the classes are great. The fact that FIU offers both online and in-person classes is an excellent opportunity because I am able to manage my time more efficiently.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Something I didn’t like is that not all courses are available online. In addition, I have noticed that there are not many online events or online organizations which may make online students feel a little bit isolated

WHAT I LIKED

My time at FIU was worth it because of the extracurricular I involved myself with. FIU isn't a great experience if you just go to class and go home, you have to get involved to meet people and really enjoy the time there.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some professors and coursework, in general, can be lax, and not prepare you as well as you think.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Having to pay $1000 to cancel living on campus.
