| Look, I know this is a university, thus I am becoming somewhat independent getting a B.A. But why in the world do I spend money to go to school if not to learn? Shouldn't instructors be actually teaching their materials? I mean, if I already know them (as they usually inferred), would I be coming to school? I've been at the school for a year now and it's really a nightmare getting one professor who actually teaches. This is quite honestly a bad school. I am NOT learning anything but what I teach myself. Well, I should say there are a couple of exceptions thus far: my physics II (PHY2049) and engineering economy (EGN 3613) instructors were/are quite normal, especially the physics'. Again, hands down the school is really horrible. Please stay away unless your options are limited as mines currently are. |

| STAY AWAY! Having gotten a degree from FSU already, trust me this college is awful. I've never seen professors intentionally try to fail you before in my life. The people here are trying to look competitive with schools like UM and UF and they think by failing students, it will seem like a hard program. The professors are useless here. They expect you to teach yourself everything before lectures even occur and they talk to you as if you know the material. If you want to actually learn something, go somewhere else. |

| Fiu University is a place to avoid if you care about your major more than the average student or have a current health or learning disability. For starters teachers act weird to students like they are their enemies in a war. They express little to no concern to your understanding and academic progress. Students pay no attention to making new friendships either, the mentality is to go to class and get out as fast as possible ignoring everyone and everything around you. Also watch out for FIU administration lying about certain process or academic steps toward graduation, I have been lied to about the appeal process after being dismissed, this hurts me but it hurts their school even more. You are charged silly fees for things you don't use like the gym, health and even parking(certain ridiculous)|
There is no correlation between the time you spend studying and the grades you actually get. Tests are "tricky" and conveniently prepared to be boring or out of this world. There's a snappy attitude through the whole school that just strikes me as unfriendly and arrogant. Always check who your teachers are before picking them for the next semester, there are more than it's fair share of crazy ones and if you are disabled or sick pick another school immediately, they will throw you out like a dog in no time if you are struggling "too much"
I made the grave mistake of falling sick during my university years and of course I was dismissed and unable to write an appeal because all advisors and chairmen were too busy in their vacation time during December to even look once in their inbox for cases like mine.THEY DON'T CARE!!!I even emailed the person you are supposed to complain to when things go wrong and guess what? NO REPLY, that's it folks, you are on your own here and today I leave this school knowing that I was robbed, lied to, pissed on, ignored and treated like crap when I was only 9 classes away from my diploma. Do yourself a favor and pick a better school!
