Am learning a lot
The professors at this university are loads of fun and make learning a pleasure, small class ensure one on one time with your instructor allowing a better understanding of the material.
Am enjoying being here
besides the parties, i love my roomates, and the many activities that take place on compus its loads of fun
Tips for prospective students
a heads up about this university would be that the food is not that appealing and females dress like the are in a fashion show every day. Oh and be prepared to dress professionally every Wednesday.

Florida Memorial University is a very highly accredited school, it is an HBCU (Historically Black College/University). Its a small Private University in Miami, FL its like one big happy family. FMU will provide you with experiences you will never forget.
Tips for prospective students
FMU can be known to be a party school so make sure you are not too engaged in the partying because some teachers will be strict on your school work.
Academic Rigor
To be considered for admission you have to have a unwieghed G.P.A. of 2.4
Dorm Life
The older dorms do need some work done but they are pretty old so for the age its not that bad.
FMU has recently built new apartment style dorms and they are beautiful they cost a little more then the older dorms but financial aid should be able to cover it and its worth it.
Food and Dining
FMU cooks a lot of soul food considering its an HBCU the food in the cafe can be great on some days but on others horrible but FMU does have pizza hut and a sub shop as another option.
What to do for fun
FMU has a student activity center where you can watch TV, play pool, and table tennis and an actual tennis court in front of the male older dorm. They also have spoken word nights and various activities are set up during the school year parties, concerts, step shows etc.
Bang for the buck
Going to Florida Memorial University was one the best decision I have ever made in my life, I believe I have made life long friends and I have had some of the best experiences in my life, and that's only my freshman year.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Random balloon fights happen throughout the year between the boys and girls you never know when its gonna happen and sometimes the teachers get involved so be prepared! The Circle is an area between the older boys and girls dorm its a circle with benches around the circle which is used for various things.
Great for these types of students
FMU is a baptist school so its great for student who are religious, there is chapel service every thursday and it is optional but some teachers may make it part of your grade. It is not a coed school which is great for students who have strict parents but coed visitation may soon be added.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs on campus and many are ethnically based such as haitian, bahamian, trinidad, etc. There is modeling, choir, dance etc.
Greek Life
The divine nine is deeply rooted on our campus they provide many of the activities around campus, fashion shows, step shows, parties, etc.
Campus Safety
FMU is an a gated community with many security guards there is no curfew but school I.D. must be shown to get on campus after certain hours.

My school offers a promise and a bright future. It has a loving and caring learning environment. This institution is great the faculty, staff and students care about each other and their education.
Tips for prospective students
I advise you to have an open mind about everyone donâ??t judge. i also feel as if you should make sure your freshman year you go above and behind what is asked of you regarding your grades but yet have fun these are the best years of your life live.
Academic Rigor
The academics here at Florida Memorial University are outstanding. We have the best aviation program to me the best in the state of Florida. The classes are about 20-25 so that you personally know your professors and if you need help you can get hands on attention. Here the teacher really cares about you and your education.
Dorm Life
We have eight dorms four of the dorm are apartment style. The other four are more like a community. But here at Florida Memorial they try to accommodate any of your needs so if you do have a problem they will help you.
Food and Dining
The food here is great. The kitchen staff is very nice and friendly, they serve you with a smile. We have a different variety of food things such as fries to Asian food Tuesdays.
What to do for fun
There are plenty of things to do we try to have a campus get together every Friday just so that we can have fun with each other and grow as a lion family. You can also on Saturday go to the mall with the school provides transportation. Or maybe you want to go to the beach; south beach is only 20 minutes away.
Bang for the buck
Every Wednesday the school takes us to Wal-Mart and you can get anything you want. Also every Thursday they take us to target just in case you missed Wal-Mart.
Great for these types of students
If you are a student you wants great learning environment that is small and hands on. Also if you want a family in your school we believe in sticking together so if you donâ??t want to be lonely my school is great for you.

The school overall is great for people who want an education, but aren't the best when it comes to larger school settings. You aren't a number there. You have a name.
Tips for prospective students
Time management. Learn it, or you will not survive.
Academic Rigor
The teachers are fantastic. You get work on your level and actually come out learning something. In class discussions also help you to interact and better understand the subject as well.
Dorm Life
The new dorms are fantastic. Clean and comfortable, though pretty small (The Campus itself is incredibly small). The older dorms however are not that great, you share a bathroom with the whole floor and the custodians don't clean up as often as they should.
Food and Dining
The snacks at the bookstore are pricey (Like all Universities) but delicious. The Cafeteria has good and bad days so I stay neutral. Sometimes you'll get something delicious, the next day, not so much. Pizza hut is on campus as well, pretty good stuff right there.
What to do for fun
The school may seem uptight about academic and education but they also like students to have fun. They have lists posted up that show activies for the entire semester, from club meetings to plays to game nights and ect. And the sororites throw tons of parties throughout the year as well.

Our sports team is small (No Football). But the players are good.
Bang for the buck
Florida Memorial is expensive, no if ands or buts. However, it IS a private University so that was expected, it's cheaper than other Private ones in Miami as well. It's a great school and as long as you do what you have to do, you will get pass each semester smoothly. If you have the money, I say give it a chance.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The school is traditionally a Christian school so there are days when Freshmen are required to go to the Church across the street from the school. But you don't have to convert, nor will they force you.

They have Convocation for Freshmen (Formal Event to officially welcome students in) and days we must attend to hear speakers or meet those who are in our profession fields to advise us here and there.

Wednesday is Business Attire day. It's not required but it does help you adjust to dressing up. Some teachers might enforce you to do so. And you must dress up when doing presentations in class.
Great for these types of students
those who want to major in Business, Pre-Law and Criminal Justice. This is the place for you.
Clubs and Activities
I don't know all of the clubs or activities but they are posted about so you know.
Greek Life
As a Freshmen, I currently do not know much of this.
Campus Safety
They enforce this rule especially for those in dorms. this school does not play when it comes to accidents/mishaps from stupidity or bullying.

Florida Memorial University is a very diverse university. You get to meet many new people from different parts of the country.
Tips for prospective students
If you plan on attending FMU make sure that your money is right. In other words make sure that your financial aid is up to date and is enough. Also you must have a balance between academics and social life.
Academic Rigor
The professors teach very well and make what they are teaching easy to understand.
Dorm Life
We currently have new dorms that are based on an apartment style but the old dorms are also very good to live in as well.
Food and Dining
I don't eat in the cafeteria much but from what I've been told the food is soo GOOD! The one time i did eat in the cafeteria i had Chicken Alfredo and it was the bomb diggity !!
What to do for fun
The best thing to do for fun is attend most of the campus activities. It gives you the chance to mingle and meet new people especially if you're shy like me.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Some traditions on campus are Founder's Day, Donation Day, and Homecoming. Homecoming is one of the best days. The campus is so much fun the whole week and lots of campus activities are going on throughout the week.
Great for these types of students
If you are shy like myself, a good group to be a part of is Matters Of The Heart. They have meetings where you can discuss pretty much any and everything you want to talk about and they also have lots of activities and can help you financially.
Campus Safety
The campus safety is very good so you wouldn't have no worries.
