I have a great experience the only thing that is crucial is parking . I can spend a good 30 minutes looking for parking and because of that I may be late sometimes to class .

FIU is an excellent school, in an excellent location. The large campus is home to about 200,000+ students, and yet it still manages to feel like home for me. The professors have always been cordial, and welcoming every semester. If there were anything I would change it would just be the acceptance rate, and try to make it more difficult to enter FIU, making it a more prestigious school.
