Programs and events
In addition to advising student councils, Campus Life also oversees campus wide programs for students.
FIU in DC Fly In
Campus Life in partnership with the FIU in DC Office created and organized a three-day, fast-paced dynamic learning experience for World’s Ahead DC Fly In students twice a year. Each semester (Fall and Spring) – 10- 15 students will travel to DC to experience think tanks, meet with representatives of the Senate and House, interview at possible internship sites, as well as learn about advocacy and communications. This program is to help students learn more about DC and the FIU in DC Office as well as learn about the endless possibilities DC has to offer.
Grad Fest is an annual event hosted each spring semester to celebrate graduating Panthers (Undergraduate, Graduate, and Professional). Students can decorate graduation caps, get photos with a professional photographer, enjoy some tasty treats, and more.
Life Skills Series
The Life Skills Series is a program consisting of workshops on various skills and subject matter that will help to prepare the student for life during and after college. Topics range from things like time management and financial literacy to more hands on skills like how to tie a tie or cook a simple meal. Workshops are offered throughout the year as in-person, virtual, and/or hybrid programs.
Love Your Major Fair
This fair, hosted each Fall semester, allows you to ask questions about your major, interact with advisors, faculty, and peers, explore majors and areas of interest, and build a stronger connection with your major and academic department.
Panther Connections Panels
anther Connections Panels are organized by track into 3 sessions each fall and spring semester:
- Global & Social Sciences and Humanities & Arts
- Biological & Environmental Sciences and Health Sciences
- Administration & Management and Physical Sciences & Engineering
Students listen to, and potentially meet with, professionals in the field during the scheduled networking time at the end. The hope is that students will find their passion area and major of study through participating. Panelists may answer questions related to their undergraduate status as an undecided student, if their major is related to their career, obstacles they may have faced, and advice they would like to share with students.
Week of Welcome
Week of Welcome is a series of events during the first week of the fall and spring semesters that provides students with opportunities to engage with Campus Life and the various student agencies and bureaus. There are opportunities to receive helpful information and resources, attend student-run events, and experience college life outside of the classroom.
