Message from the Alumni Assistant Director

Maria ClaverieHello Alumni!

I’m Maria G. Claverie, Assistant Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations and a proud FIU graduate (M.S. ’00). Our office keeps you up-to-date with the latest news and event information specifically related to FIU and the College. If you are not on our mailing list, please take a minute to update your information.

As you may recall, in 2006 the School of Architecture joined the performing, visual and communication arts from the College of Arts and Sciences to form the College of Architecture + The Arts. We are now comprised of seven academic units, including: Architecture, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Art + Art History, Communication Arts, Music, and Theatre

After just seven years, we have had many accomplishments, including the inauguration of our Miami Beach Urban Studios that features a magnificent new gallery, as well as design, performance and classroom space on Lincoln Road. We have more than 150 events scheduled at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center that showcase the talent of our Theatre and Music students, alumni, and faculty, as well as exhibitions in various locations that highlight the work of our BFA and MFA students.

You are a graduate not only of a successful College, but of an exciting university.  As such, I encourage you to join the Alumni Association if you have not already done so.  Along with the numerous activities and events hosted by the Association, benefits of membership include discounts with campus, community and national partners, subscription to the FIU Magazine, free admission to tailgating parties and reduced ticket packages to all FIU athletic events.

In order to make sure you’re aware of all the latest events at CARTA, we have created a Facebook page specifically for you, our alumni! “Like” our CARTA Alumni Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CARTAAlumni) to share stories, receive updates, and stay in touch with fellow CARTA Golden Panthers.

I encourage you to stay connected with your fellow FIU Golden Panthers and come join us at any of the exciting alumni events we host throughout the year, including happy hours, event receptions, Silver Pride Reunion, and Homecoming. We’d love to see you and learn about what you’ve been doing!

Come home soon!
