About This Episode

Stats and rankings are impressive, but they fail to tell the whole story about a university - the real story - of what a university does - and why we do what we do. Behind every one of FIU's triumphs are real individuals with real goals and responsibilities, rooted in the realities of what is happening in the world today. Our FIU students feel personally charged to make a difference. These are their stories from their perspectives, in their words. They are FIU. They are as real as it gets.
