FIU helps community battle cabin fever with virtual classes, events and tours


As the FIU community and the nation practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, FIU is moving many events and services online.

Steer clear of cabin fever ⁠— and stay healthy, educated, and on track ⁠— by tuning in to these virtual events and activities. Get your workout in, take up new skills like cooking or meditation, visit FIU’s “virtual museums,” and more.

This list will be updated as events and services are added. If you have an event or activity you would like to add, please email morgan.hughes@fiu.edu.
