The Student Lab Studio is inside FIU’s Deuxième Maison Building, completed in 1973. Also known as the DM Building, it is adjacent to Primera Casa (PC) and the Green Library. Deuxième Maison French for “second house,” and like the name suggests it was the second in a series of learning facilities on the Modesto Maidique Campus. The first building was Primera Casa (first house in Spanish), the third was Owa Ehan (third house in Swahili), and the fourth was Viertes Haus (fourth house in German) – which is home to FIU Theatre’s Dance Studio. The large cube in front of Deuxième Maison is said to give good luck in exams and tests and thus is spun by hundreds of students every semester. During final exams, a line forms around the cube with people waiting to be able to spin the cube for good luck on their exams.

Find on campus.
