FIU Online Review

Updated on June 24, 2011

Why You Should Go To Florida International University

Florida International University has a student body close to forty thousand and is considered one of the twenty-five biggest universities in the US. However, this was not always the case. FIU’s start was a humble one that began in a deserted airfield, known as Tamiami Airport, back in 1969. The airport’s air traffic control tower was FIU’s first building and to this day the tower still remains on campus and is known as FIU’s Ivory Tower.

Today FIU's campus is enormous with students from all over the world.

FIU offers over two hundred bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

Tutition at FIU: $158.10 for local in-state fees and $571.40 out-of state fees.
