Life at FIU
Walk to the Graham Center and join a club, or go outside and take a seat with the yoga class on the lawn. Join a fraternity or sorority and go Greek, or, if you have the voice, apply at our radio station: WRGP. Here at FIU, we encourage you to get involved and become a member of the FIU family.
Go beyond the campus you'll see the eclectic qualities of our city. The culture and charm of Calle Ocho awaits you just around the corner. Find the glowing reflection of South Beach and Ocean Drive on the saltwater, or the elegance and aesthetic of our Design District near Midtown. Every neighborhood and community is rich with opportunity, character and life. Let South Florida compliment your academic journey.
