For Florida residents, attending a state university or college is a bargain.

Around 200 Puerto Rican students and their families toured Florida International University (FIU) on Wednesday to see if the school is a good fit for them to catch up with their studies and enroll in the spring semester.

All fraternities and sororities at Florida State University have been suspended indefinitely after the death of 20-year old Alex Coffey at a fraternity event. FSU John Thrasher made the announcement earlier this week.

Puerto Rican students who were displaced by Hurricane Maria will soon be able to continue their studies in South Florida — at a discount.
