5 College Junior

Facilities: We are really lucky to go to school in NYC and experience everything the city has to offer at such a young age. The internship opportunities are endless.

Computers: We have a few computer labs spread out across campus, but they get extremely crowded. All computer labs have Macs and PCs which come in handy depending on your major. It costs 10 cents per page to print black and white and 90 cents to print color.

Health & Safety: There are security guards everywhere you look. In order to get into the buildings you have to show your ID. I have never felt unsafe on campus

Nightlife: FIT's social life mostly consists of girls going out with promoters to clubs during your first few years in the city. Once you get into your bachelors most girls branch out and start going to bars.

Majors: The professors are all professionals who don't hesitate to share their experience. The courses are very challenging and one doesn't come out of them the same!

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: NYC! need I say more?

Off-Campus Dining: Again we are talking NYC here! So off-campus dining is superb! The options are just endless. The only drawback is your budget!

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It get very hectic in winter and a lot of classes get cancelled but overall it is OK.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options off campus, but it is new york and rents are very high. A dorm room with utility taken care of and the added security seems more convenient.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: FIT is a relatively safe campus and there hasn't been many offenses in the past.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: FIT is diverse and creative and the students are all very determined. They have goals and work hard to achieve them. The professor are very skilled professionals and the professional connections one can make are numerous.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: FIT is an art oriented campus so it's only natural that sports aren't as big as other colleges there.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: FIT is very strict regarding drugs and I don't see many students who would violate those rules.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There are actually people who throw parties for college students in new york!

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: To be honest FIT is not big on IT. Their online services are slow and not much reliable.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is amazing as we are in the big apple! There is always plenty to go do or see.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: FIT is more fashion focused so many dont take our sports seriously and most are unaware that FIT even offers sports.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a very large variety on campus as far as ethnicity, backgrounds, and beliefs.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife is great at school being that we are in the city. There are plenty of places to go have fun away from campus.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of transportation options on campus being that we are in the city.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many dining options around campus with large variety. Also, many offer student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe there should be more campus security outside on campus; such as on each end of street as well as in the middle.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not noticeably used on FIT campus to my knowledge.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at FIT are very good. I believe we have great professors as they have actually experienced what they are teaching. I do not like registration process and think they should come up with an easier way.

The majority of students agrees that the quality of education they receive extends beyond the price that is paid. The FIT faculty has extensive knowledge of the industry and delivers real-world experience to students. Students are also given the chance to expand their learning outside of the New York City classroom, with internships and study abroad programs. Those students who tend to look negatively at FIT are those who are uninvolved and do not take advantage of what the school has to offer.

With the lack of a social scene, lack of a real campus, and the overwhelming amount of girls, students overlook these aspects and value the experiences and opportunities instead. New York City is where dreams can happen. If you stay focused and work hard, you will develop skills and confidence that will lead to a successful career.
