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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: FIT has a fairly strict campus. I am actually glad FIT is so strict in some aspects as it makes me feel very safe. My only complaint with the strictness of FIT is the overnight policy.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe in the school itself but i am not very comfortable with walking home at night alone. i would rather be in a group or drive home.

4 College Senior

Transportation: I walk to school evryday, everything is so close together there is no need for a car. unless you want to venture out of the school busses and walking is fine and very cheap, i do have my car when I want to go out with friends or buy groceries.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I am no longer enrolled into this school, but at my previous school there were just so many rules that felt it was hard to express ourselves, which was sad because it was an art school.

College Senior

Weather: I am no longer enrolled into school, so the weather would not affect my campus experience.

3 College Senior

Academics: Im learning but it seems like the same few things over and over again. The professors get caught up in their own work many times as they are adjunct professors. Having an internship is rewarding but the process was annoying.

3 College Senior

Computers: Sometimes the labs to print get super busy. You can bring and use laptops in classrooms.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: On 27th st I feel totally fine at night but on 31st where upperclassman dorms are it gets pretty sketchy at night. You just have to be careful around the city

2 College Senior

Athletics: I hear we have a pretty good mens basketball team but otherwise no one takes part or notices the sports teams

College Senior

Greek Life: We do not have Greek Life

4 College Senior

Nightlife: You have New York City as your nightlife. You just have to be willing to travel to get into certain bars if youre underaged.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: You dont really see too much drinking happening besides when the trash gets taken out. Most go off campus as there arent any real dorm parties ever. But you know those who do drugs and most of the time the dorms smell like weed,

4 College Senior

Diversity: You will find people from all walks of life here.

4 College Senior

Majors: Once you are in your major you are in it and they make it difficult to switch. FIT is highly selective in the admissions process. I know design students who work long hours to get work done.

2 College Senior

Majors: I am an AMC major and basically take the same classes over and over again for the past two years.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Rooms are small and neighbors can get annoying quickly. We have RAs but they dont really do much.

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.
