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.

4 College Senior

Transportation: We have a subway, buses, trains and shuttles to get you where you need to go. Of course provided by nyc and not the school. subways will run late and not having a student metro card is annoying especially getting down to your internship

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They are very strict about visitation and what you can and cannot have in your dorm. I go fined $100 for leaving 4 bottles of spices in a cabinet.

3 College Senior

Weather: Typical four seasons. Winters are brutal and make you want to stay inside but once it gets nice out all of FIT and the city is out.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's expensive, but it's close to class and the upper classmen dorms are pretty nice.

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.
