1 College Junior

Facilities: Most of my teachers spend time gossiping about one another or talk about their own daily life happenings. The teachers here are taught to "baby" or behave their students, not intellectually challenge them. The more time I spend in a classroom, the more and quicker my brain cells evaporate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I love the school, the teachers, and the classes. I love the area it's in, there is so much activity in Downtown. But if I had to do it all over, I would not choose this school because of the quarter system.

Tuition & Financial Aid: In your first quarter they have you take an online class about financial aid, and how to create a budget

Student Body: I see so many different races around school, it's very mixed. Everyone is really into getting their work done

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken an online course at the school yet

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The classes are a decent size, and the school goes by a quarter system, which gives you a two week break in between each quarter which is pretty nice.

Facilities: It's located right in Downtown L.A, some of the apartments are the housing, They have different trips where you can go to Paris, New York, or tour parts of Europe. The class sizes are small and the teachers are very helpful. It's not to far from USC, so there are other college students around the area. It's right by Nokia Theatre and the Staple Center.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

FIDM is a unique experience that many people are glad to be a part of. FIDM allows students to learn about the fashion and design industry in classes and then apply their newly-acquired skills to real world experience and internships. It's one thing to hear, "Oh, you'll use this one day. . ." and a completely different thing to see it right before your eyes—hands on. The Career Center is a really good resource for helping current students find internships and jobs, as well as helping alumni stay connected.

Through online coursework and blocked scheduling, FIDM also succeeds in helping students get an education while working around complicated schedules. Students are able to attend school full-time, work part-time, and hold down a part-time internship—all at the same time. Many students remark that FIDM was a better experience than they could have hoped for. It might sound cliché, but they mean it.
