In Game

An FIU Panthers game is home to everything you would expect from a college hoops game. The cheerleaders and dance team put on a great show, and if Roary the Panther doesn’t manage to put a smile on your face then I don’t know what will. The FIU band also creates a fun in-game atmosphere with their tunes and helps to give FIU Arena a collegiate feel.

The fan support at Panthers can be a bit hit or miss, but FIU students have recently stepped up their game by creating the Rosenberg Rowdies. You can spot these Panthers diehards at every game cheering on the team, so keep an eye for them during your visit.

Finally, make sure to stop by and snap a picture the bronze panther sculpture before the game. The sculpture offers an excellent photo opportunity and will create a nice keepsake from your trip.
