This event brings together the FIU community in a spirit/pep rally style event which will include the traditional lighting of the Torch of Knowledge, Service & Opportunity. The event will take place in front of the MARC Building/Vicky Café area. Attendees can check in, enjoy food, festival like snacks and get tons of giveaways. Be sure to check out our international student organization showcase while enjoying live entertainment and the chance drawing in support of our Student Emergency Fund, to support students in crisis.

Philanthropy is at the center of this event, be sure to make a donation for special donor recognition! The first 100 donors will receive a “Thank You” T-shirt!

Be sure to arrive by 7:30 p.m. to learn who are 4 Torchbearers are!  After the torch is lit, be sure to grab your Trail of the Torch giveaway at the Torch by the PC Steps! Only students, alumni and staff who “swipe in” and get a wristband will be able to get the event giveaway!
