Ideal for international students
Tips: There are very limited options for transportation so prepare to have everything (groceries) delivered or buy a car. Getting things delivered is not as expensive, I currently use Walmart + which is $100 a year and you get free shipping, free grocery deliveries, and other perks
Likes (Value for money): This school is full of international students and they offer a variety of funding options such as scholarships, jobs, paid volunteering, etc. Besides, compared to other 4-year universities FIUs price tuition is relatively inexpensive. I would argue that you are even getting more for your money
Dislikes (Indian Food): They don’t have many Mexican options but they do have Latin American foods throughout the campus. They have many fast food places such as Starbucks, dunkin, chick fil A, Taco Bell, and many others throughout the campus. They also have their own food court which offers pasta, wok bowls, salad bar, desserts, etc.
