    There are many places to choose from, such as Pollo Tropical, Moe's, Chili's, Burger King, and Sushi Maki. These are only a few restaurants to choose from as there are various food courts located on campus.

  • Jul-26-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    During my tour, I saw many unhealthy restaurants and about three Starbucks. I was told from my cousin that there was a healthy section in the cafeteria, but that it was a bit expensive (she graduated from the school). There were many different dining choices though.

    The Biscayne Bay campus is limited in terms of food choices, however, they still have events where they provide free food. The Modesto campus have every fast food restaurant that you could think of from Subway to Pollo Tropical.

    FIU's Graham Center is home to a Bustelo, Burger King, Almazar, Jamba Juice, Pollo Tropical, Subway, Sushi Maki, and Fresh Market. The library has a Starbucks inside and both a Panda Express and Taco Bell were just added by the Ryder building.

    There are many restaurants located on campus including Chilis, Pollo Tropical, Subway, Sushi Maki, Moe's, Chick-fil-a, Taco Bell, and Panda Express. These get very crowded from noon to 2 pm but lines go very quickly and service is great. The campus cafeteria actually has a good variety of food and it is very comfortable in it, but they sometimes get a bit repetitive with the options.

    There is a very prominent Greek Life at FIU. It is not uncommon to see people wearing their letters or raising money with their brothers and sisters for a good cause.

    The Greek life is very active, so active that I had to drop recruitment because I was still getting into the swing of college and being in a sorority would have taken a lot of time out of my studying because they are really active.
