This is a pretty awesome accomplishment. Cool to see we are among a few schools in C-USA to have such a distinction.

Only 115 institutions in the nation, I believe, got the highest designation. I would say FIU is easily among the youngest 2-3 of that list, if not the youngest.

Great accomplishment! Congrats!
