The weekend before Spring 2013 classes began, the FIU Alumni Association asked alumni if they had any words of wisdom to share with new students. Alumni quickly sounded-off and here are some of the highlights.
“Enjoy it! Learn the traditions! Embrace the Panther pride! Go to a game .. or 2. But most of all, make memories” – Cristel Gomez
“Seek opportunities and create a network before you leave. The financial aid office is your friend; there are scholarships and grants. Learn how to write a grant.” – Carol Yngve
“Enjoy every single day at FIU. Time flies. Don’t rush through your college years.” – Teresa Arcaini Bown
“Make sure that you read the course syllabus in its entirety as opposed to just skimming through it.” - Janiel F Vargas
“Don’t step on the seal!” - Sean Kramer
The FIU Alumni Association wishes all students a happy and healthy semester!
