HEARTS Clubs and Activities


HEARTS (A cappella group)

A cappella groups sing without musical accompaniment only relying on the tones of the human voice. HEARTbeats brings together students who sing, who beatbox, who rap, and more. It is currently led by Gladys Levy, the Musical Director. From the most popular of pop music to classic World War I tunes to lift the spirits of the downtrodden, if it can be sung HEARTbeats will make a showstopping performance of it.

For more information on HEARTbeats please contact Luli Szeinblum by email at luli.szeinblum@fiu.edu or Faculty Director Janet McDaniel at jmcdanie@fiu.edu.

HEARTS Connecting Culture Club

Connecting Cultures is about embracing diversity. We examine global issues through multicultural perspectives and challenge club members to think outside of their views. In our meetings, we talk about inequality, racism, sexuality, gender, and more. We realize that the world is rich in experience, perceptions, and thought, so we meet to investigate these differences, but also to discover our similarities, to foster a stronger sense of community and awareness at FIU.
