Reconnect with Your Alma Mater

Welcome to the College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts alumni community. Yesterday, you were students; today, you are performers, architects, directors, communicators, artists, and designers. But together you are all FIU Panthers!

As of 2016, we are excited to announce the new integration of the College of Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) with the School of Communication + Journalism (SCJ). This new partnership combines the power of the arts and communication to foster interdisciplinary research and degree programs that better prepare students for the 21st century’s information, technology, and innovation economies. With the integration of the School of Communication + Journalism, our CARTA alumni family has nearly doubled to more than 14,000 graduates. That means more opportunities to grow and reconnect in a vast worldwide alumni network. To read more on the CARTA + SCJ partnership, please click here.

We would love to see you at an event or visit us on your next trip to Miami at one of our state-of-the-art facilities at both the Modesto A. Maidique Campus and Biscayne Bay Campus, as well as the Miami Beach Urban Studios. Take advantage of our concerts, exhibitions, lectures, tailgate parties, and other special events happening throughout the year. Stay connected through the College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts Facebook page and Twitter page @FIUCARTA. You can also receive a monthly alumni e-newsletter with College news and career opportunities.
