Welcome Back Safely, Panthers | Fall 2019


On behalf of the CARTA faculty and staff, Welcome to our newly admitted students, and Welcome Back to our over 4,000 returning majors. We hope that you and your loved ones have been spared from the devastating impact of Hurricane Dorian. Our thoughts are with the Bahamas during this time of recuperation. To learn more about how you can help support our students, faculty and staff from The Bahamas impacted by Hurricane Dorian, visit fiustrong.fiu.edu.

To continue your semester on a good note and ensure you are on track for a timely graduation, please take a moment to visit my.fiu.eduThere you can review your personal academic advisor, your class schedule, your Panther Degree Audit (PDA), your unofficial transcripts, the University Course Catalog and Academic Calendar, and any university financial assistance you may be receiving. Make sure to make an appointment with your academic advisor. They are a valuable source of information for your success throughout your journey at FIU.

Also, take a moment to review all the career, cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities offered on the College’s homepage, carta.fiu.edu. Here you can learn more about internships, employment, and scholarship opportunities; Career Fairs; and a listing of over 100 CARTA events offered on the Modesto Maidique Campus (MMC), the Biscayne Bay Campus (BBC), and the College’s 420 Lincoln Road location, CARTA | Miami Beach Urban Studios (MBUS). You will also find links to the College’s and the Departments’ social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn), the Department of Journalism + Media’s South Florida Media Network , and to CARTANews — our very own digital publication highlighting the activities and accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

In closing, we understand your education is an investment in your future, and we appreciate your confidence in FIU and CARTA. We, like you, are excited about the upcoming year and the remarkable opportunities ahead of us!

Go Panthers!
