Well before I start I just want to mention that I've lived in Miami my entire life. Now, FIU is a commuter school, so it will be active on campus during certain hours. Despite all the comments I've read, the campus isn't that big. If you walk all around campus it's mostly because you hose you're classes that way. The people that foot FIU talk mostly with the people they know. If you're shy and want to make friends you're going to have to ind a way to get over it, I know from experience. The faculty is like all the others it's got some that are good and some that are bad. Food-wise most of the junk food will be found in gc while the few healthy options we have are in pg5, which currently is a hassle to get to because of the construction detour. If you want parking get here at least an hour before your class starts. Traffic is horrible at certain times, and the cops make sure you go at the speed limit posted. Now even though its a commuter school, the people that live on campus seem to make friends with those around them. They're always planning events to enjoy the nightlife from what I've seen on our Facebook group. The surrounding city is pretty great compared to other cities only because we have a lot to offer. If you're a social person you'll grit in fine, if not you'll find some people that are more similar to you if you look hard. :) hope this helps.
