Florida International University, more commonly referred to as FIU, is located in Miami, Florida. This college is classified as a research institution and is ranked as a first tier research university by the Florida Legislature. FIU is the youngest university in the country to be awarded a Phi Beta Kappa chapter.
To many people’s surprise, FIU is the 7th largest school in the United States, made up of over 50,000 students. Regardless of the size of the university, FIU has the lowest admission ratings amongst Florida public universities. Many people are under the impression that UF is the most difficult college to gain acceptance to, but, in reality, it is FIU that is the most selective.
All right -- academics aside, this school has a sort of ridiculous nightlife because of its great Miami location. There is always something to do in town, with endless places to go. Without further ado, let’s take look at the 25 GIFs that perfectly describe attending this fine university.
