    Outdoors @ FIU

    Florida International University has a beautiful campus that provides many opportunities to enjoy the out-of-doors once you get outside of your classroom, the library, GC, or your residence hall room. In addition to recreation facilities like the tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, the pool, outdoor basketball courts, and the Recreation Field, there are a number of other areas to consider.

    FIU is the site of the Martin Z. Margulies Sculpture Park, one of the world's most important international outdoor sculpture collections that includes works by Calder, de Kooning, Nevelson, Serra, Dubuffet and other well-known artists. Guided tours are available to groups (coordinated through the Frost Art Museum), or just walk your own tour.
