Campus Life

The department of Campus Life aspires to engage students in holistic learning by instilling diversity, leadership, and personal development through its programs and services. By educating and mentoring students, Campus Life seeks to provide our students an opportunity to make meaningful connections and become leaders in a global community. Campus Life is responsible for the advisement of the following councils; Black Student Union, Homecoming, Panther Power, Registered Student Organizations Council, and Student Programming Councils at MMC and BBC.

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.

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.

Summerfest

SummerFest is FIU’s largest student programming event of the summer. A 4 hour concert with DJs and artists, SummerFest brings students together in an exciting atmosphere for engagement and to discover all that Campus Life has to offer. Check out our promo video at: summerfest.fiu.edu to get a real taste of what Summerfest is all about.

Week of Welcome

Week of Welcome is a series of events during the semesters that provides students with opportunities to engage with campus life and the various student councils. There are opportunities to receive helpful information and resources, attend student-run events, and experience college life outside of the classroom.
