Alumni Spotlight

Young Alumni Make Connections

On Thursday, February 26, the FIU Young Alumni Council hosted their first event of 2015 at Lexus of North Miami. Graduates gathered over some great food and music to catch up, share their experiences and build valuable connections to keep pushing their careers forward. Alumnus Joaklin Raphael ’09 mentioned, “It’s great to reconnect with other young alumni, meet new people and discover new ways to stay engaged with FIU.”

Lexus of North Miami opened their doors to the Young Alumni Council and spoke about their commitment to the FIU community. Recent graduates can take advantage of $1,000 off a Lexus and the dealership will make a state matched contribution to first generation scholarships

Council member Angie Freire ’11 shared, ” It is truly wonderful to get FIU’s young alumni together in one room to discuss how they can leverage the Young Alumni Council to better themselves professionally, personally, and impact their community while showing their Panther Pride.”
