2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It is basically an all girls school, a fashion school.

Guys & Girls: Our school is VERY liberal when it comes to the dress code. Obviously since it's a fashion school everyone dresses pretty nice. A lazy outfit for an FIT student is generally a pretty nice outfit for someone at a typical college like Penn State, etc. 90% of the students here are very determined and as freshman are already getting involved with jobs, internships, networking opportunities, designing their own clothes, etc. Students are generally very busy so having a social life won't be an abundant part part of the college experience. Students here can be incredibly stuck up or have a sense of entitlement or being better than others but that only makes up around 40% of people.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Students are very interesting and artsy but there are almost no guys. That is hard to get used to.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Wish there were more guys in the school, I guess. A lot of females around the campus. So far I only had about 3-4 boys in my class since being at FIT.

The ratio between girls and guys at FIT can be overwhelming at times. In classes, it is easily recognized that there are more girls than guys, depending on the major. Either way, guy or girl, students should not get discouraged by this. If you're a girl, there are plenty of young, cute men (or women) in New York City that are looking for you, too. If you're a straight guy, there are plenty of girls at FIT from which to choose. If you're a gay man, take advantage of the gay culture within the Chelsea neighborhood that FIT resides.

A dating scene does not really exist at FIT. There are some guys and girls that date, but the majority of dating happens within the gay community. If you are a girl and can find a straight guy to date at FIT, that is a rare commodity, and you will often see awkward glances from your peers. If you come to FIT dating your high school sweetheart, then it's a perfect place to find your gay best friend.

There is a lack of a social scene on campus, with few athletic events. Students establish a group of friends and tend to stick with that group throughout their years at FIT.
Hookups or Relationships?
A lot of girls on campus are in relationships, but not with guys from FIT. Girls: don't expect to meet the love of your life at FIT. Guys: if you're gay, your chances are far higher; if you're straight, FIT is full of hot girls.
Dress Code
There are no rules when it comes to dress at FIT. You will see hundreds of different styles on a normal day. The key is to know what looks good without trying too hard.

A lot of students find that they do not have time to date, whereas at other schools, college can be where you find your soul mate.
