Student Affairs

College is a rich and multi-faceted adventure, shaped by experiences learned both in and outside the classroom. Participating in an intramural sport, writing for the student newspaper or serving as a cabinet member for Student Government Association can influence your interests, provide practical skills and experience, and enrich learning. The Division of Student Affairs supports these experiences by engaging students outside of the classroom through 23 departments. Let's explore and grow together.

#FIU23 Save the Date: Freshmen Convocation

Freshman Convocation is a Florida International University tradition that welcomes freshmen, as well as their friends and family. All freshmen will attend this formal induction ceremony hosted by the University President, our college deans, and other distinguished faculty and staff. This memorable experience marks as the students' introduction to their college career, in the same manner that commencement will mark their success as proud graduates of FIU.

Highlights of Freshman Convocation Include:

  • The torch-bearing ceremony
  • Unveiling of the official class banner
  • A spirited post-ceremony reception

A digital experience that prepares you for those important conversations.
Student Food Pantry

Food insecurity is surprisingly common at colleges and universities across the country. The lack of reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable and nutritious food presents a serious challenge for today’s college students.

The MMC student food pantry is located in GC 319, Biscayne Bay Campus Pantry is located in WUC  353. Both pantries are donations based, which means that all the food distributed comes from donations made by staff, faculty, members of the community, and student groups.
