Letter From Campus Life
Welcome new students and welcome back returning Golden Panthers! Florida International
University is an incredible institution filled with a diverse and richly talented student body and
Worlds Ahead faculty and staff who are here to guide you along to make this time special
and fulfilling. In order to help you get the most of your College experience, we, here in
Campus Life, strongly encourage you to get involved on campus. Whether it is a Club, Honor
Society, Sorority or Fraternity…it’s up to you.
There are many reasons for you to get involved at FIU. First and foremost, it is FUN. You
should want to connect with other like-minded students who not only want to socialize,
but who also have goals to be successful in life. You will find opportunities here to obtain
leadership skills and experiences that will be crucial in landing that perfect job when you
graduate. You will be able to network with new friends and future professional colleagues.
Finally, research clearly shows that students who are involved on campus are more likely to
succeed in college. Since the average college graduate will earn $2-3 million more over their
career than those without a college degree it seems that getting involved is not just fun, but
is also a wise investment.
So again, welcome! We hope that you will take advantage of all the great resources FIU has
to offer and that you have the great college experience you deserve.
Thank you for your investment in FIU and GO PANTHERS!!!
