5 Student Testimonials



Sophomore · Psychology

FIU keeps striving to be the best university for their students. As a student, I’m proud to be a panther and it is one of the best choices I made. FIU will challenge you to be that better version of yourself.


Freshman · Political Science and Government

I love FIU. It has a great and friendly atmosphere. I am in the Honors College so I have the great privilege of taking classes with a small number of students and caring teachers. The FIU administration seems to really care about students and their academics, they even have free tutoring on all courses available to students. In addition to academic excellence, FIU also provides free and fun activities for students to participate in and have fun at.


Junior · Computer Science

some professors are tough, but the class, food, and friends are great! There is rigorous academic coursework that will make any alumni the most valuable out there.


Sophomore · Political Science and Government

FIU is an amazing institution with a variety of opportunities at your finger tips. The administration is constantly pushing students to be the best version of themselves. There are MANY research opportunities in every field thought possible. If you have a dream or goal you feel is out of your reach, FIU will help you get there.


Sophomore · Human Resources Management and Services

I love everything about FIU. At first I didn’t want to go because everyone in Miami goes to FIU but after my first week my view changed 360. I’ve met SO SO SOOOO many people and have had incredible opportunities arise from being an FIU student. They have events every single day so campus is never boring. You’ll know everyone in Miami at the end of the semester because it’s one big family. I’m so proud to be a Panther and to have gone to FIU!!!
