It’s Cram Jam Time Again at FIU!

It’s that time of the year when students participate in a tradition after cramming all night for finals. They receive a full complimentary breakfast that starts at 12:00 am. This  twelve years tradition has grown over the years at both campuses. Some students started lining up from 9:30 pm!

Gov. Rick Scott Calls on Florida Universities to Examine Anti-Hazing Rules

Governor Wants Anti-Hazing Rules Examined

Although the recent hazing incident that lead to the death of Robert Champion, a Florida A&M student, did not occur in South Florida,  it is important for us here to be mindful of an ongoing hazing problem which happens even at our local institutions. Governor Rick Scott is calling on all university presidents to examine hazing rules so that a similar incident will not recur. Governor Scott wrote in a letter to Chancellor Brogan that hazing will not be tolerated. Robert Champion, a drum major, was found unresponsive on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel. The band had performed earlier at a football game.
