While many in South Florida experienced minor damage and power loss after the storm unleashed its fury last week, others are still struggling. Luckily, our community always shows strong resolve to support recovery in times of critical need like these.
The Florida Keys and Loxahatchee were two areas hit hardest, and are also home to two of FIU’s most unique programs:
