In an effort to provide additional service to the FIU community, the Graham University Center has established Commnuity Day Fair dates to our schedule of activities for off-campus vendors to promote and sell their products and services.
We are committed to honest business dealings with our vendors, and we strive to develop mutually advantageous relationships; therefore it is the sole responsibility of the vendor to determine the best dates for their business. The Graham Center is not responsible for the Vendor’s lack of sales for any reason.
Vendors are subject to university rules and regulations governing facilities utilization.
