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.

Taste of FIU

On December 6th, Taste of FIU, Florida International University’s exclusive cooking competition, celebrates five years of supporting the United Way!

Contestants battle it out in three rounds through an intense competition in which they are challenged with creating innovative appetizers, main courses and desserts to impress our celebrity judges’ taste buds!

Contestants are given a mystery basket of ingredients and have access to various spices and foods to elevate their dishes. Some past delicacies have included duck, watermelon radish, elk, Indian figs and Buddha’s hand.  What will the contestants get this year? You’ll have to join us to find out!

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.
