Florida Memorial University
Florida Memorial’s history and traditions reach back to 1879. Our legacy of determination and accomplishment has made us the only historically black university in southern Florida. We are a culturally diverse institution, transforming lives and helping to create a future for people from many races, ethnicities, countries, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. Members of the board of trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students and alumni take every opportunity possible to express pride in the institution.
At Florida Memorial University, students have a wealth of opportunity to pursue their lifelong career goals. The university offers 27 undergraduate degree programs and 3 master’s programs. The university offers degree programs that embody a coherent course of study that is compatible with our mission through “instilling in students the importance of becoming global citizens through life-long learning, leadership, character, and service which will enhance their lives and the lives of others.” As part of our mission, quality programming is offered to support the recognition that “education contributes to the quality of life and expects that students will leave its community of scholars and traditions prepared to participate fully in a global society.” All degree programs focus on graduating students who are well prepared in their discipline to enter a competitive job market where they will make knowledgeable contributions to their fields of study.
As an out-of-state student, I got involved with several extracurricular activities to stay busy and meet new people. They all added to the positive, easy-going environment on campus and made my college experience more enjoyable
