Favorite Place at FIU: My favorite spot on campus is the top floor of Parking Garage 5 at night. Not only do you get the best views of our university, but you get a great view of downtown. It is absolutely breathtaking and a sight that looks like it is out of a painting. 

Favorite thing about FIU: My favorite aspect of FIU is our Worlds Ahead initiative. As an undergraduate here at the university, I always sensed that the university wanted their students to succeed. Students are not just another number and they are given all the resources needed to succeed. If you want to become a future lawyer, there is a Law Mock Trial room which is perhaps one of my favorite study spots on campus. If you need a hospital room to perform unique procedures we have our STAR center with different robotics that can simulate what being a human being is like. Let’s not forget our Astro Science Center, Wall of Wind, and our world class faculty who made all of this possible. There are plenty of options for students who truly want to have a Worlds Ahead experience.

Fun Fact: I am a huge Miami Dolphins fan.

Advice you would give to college-bound students: College is a match to be made. Not a prize to be won.
