Alumni Center Building Fund

FIU-Alumni-Center-1

Lifelong connections are the intangible, unforgettable fibers that tie together people, places and moments in time.

The collegiate bonds formed here don’t disappear — they last from matriculation through graduation, enriching professional careers for decades to come. With an alumni base closing in on a quarter-million, the time has come to build a true community focal point — a place to call home while celebrating FIU’s trailblazing past and visionary future.

Introducing: The FIU Alumni Center.

FIU-Alumni-Center-2bFORM

The theme of expansive environments extends into the Alumni Center’s interior. An avant-garde atrium stretching three stories tall warmly greets guests with stunning design and functionality. Visitors can stroll the family room’s wraparound balcony while reminiscing about their times at FIU. A breathtaking ballroom with seating for 400 guests at tables (or more than 550 for theater-style seating) sets the stage for an unparalleled evening out. Panthers past and present will cherish this communal focal point, ultimately strengthening alumni relations for generations to come.

Miami weather lends itself to sprawling, open-air architecture. The Alumni Center courtyard will feature 7,000 square feet of multi-purpose outdoor space draped in inviting, lush greenery. Linen canopies above will trace the skyline, providing the perfect amount of shade from the South Florida sun. Alumni, students and friends alike will love spending their free time at this beautiful outdoor oasis.

FUNCTION

The ultimate vision of the Alumni Center is to be the premier multi-purpose facility for academic, social and business gatherings. The interior itself was designed for more than just entertaining. The Alumni Center features a Panther lounge, offices for Alumni Career Services, flexible meeting spaces for alumni activities, workshops, lectures; and much, much more.

Whether it’s a celebration or special occasion, nothing compares to entertaining at a beautiful, outdoor environment. The immense space afforded to us can be used to recognize donors, display university history and showcase both student and alumni accomplishments. With a backdrop reminiscent of the high-end lounges on South Beach, the Alumni Center is the perfect place to host stylish, large-scale events.

UNITING THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF FIU

As FIU alumni continue to make a global impact on communities around the world, creating a “home” on campus to welcome them and celebrate their achievements is an increasingly significant factor when it comes to alumni engagement. The Alumni Center will act as an emotional epicenter, fostering affinity and lifelong connections while strengthening the FIU family as a whole.

The Alumni Center’s planned location is one of the most coveted spaces on campus. Located right next to FIU’s main entrance, visitors will be welcomed by this 30,000-sqaure-foot beacon of collegiate unity.

Beyond location, the Alumni Center will be the most technologically advanced building on campus — guests will be greeted by dynamic electronic banners and interactive touch screens that provide an intuitive, state-of-the-art experience that explores the past, present and future of FIU.

United by their commitment to FIU, alumni who visit the center will have the opportunity to reconnect with friends, professors and mentors — the very people who guided their personal, professional and academic ascension.

Join our cause as we move forward with this monumental undertaking to unite FIU’s global legacy.
