Connecting Students with Alumni

Panther Alumni Week (PAW) connects students with former Panthers through class presentations, industry panels and networking events. Each year, we invite alumni to visit FIU and engage with our students on campus and virtually by offering real-world insight and valuable career advice.

Join us from February 5-12, 2024 for an exciting week of events and networking opportunities!

We're proud to celebrate the eleventh anniversary of PAW. With your involvement, we can make PAW bigger and better than ever.

If PAW was one word, it would be 'perspective.' Alumni return to share their perspectives on the benefits of FIU as applied to the world. Current Panthers gain the perspective of the worth of their current experience as seen from the future. Both alumni and students understand the broad scope and diversity of our Alumni network. As faculty, I just LOVE to witness the success my former students have achieved. We all gain new perspectives and new friendships.
