2 College Junior

Nightlife: I'm not a nightlife person but from what I hear, you have too drive to orlando if you want good nightlife.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's pretty boring off campus. But if you have a car and are willing to drive at least half an hour, you will find some pretty fun stuff.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I really don't have an opinion on greek life. I have a few friends that are greek and they are pretty cool.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for two years and enjoyed it. But, the rooms are not worth the price they cost. I can get an off campus apartment with bigger rooms and better quality for less.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are really varied. Depending on which teacher, the class could either be really easy or really hard. And some of the teachers teach like you already know everything about the subject so you pretty much have to learn for yourself

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree seems pretty valuable especially to the companies in the area.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It really was no big deal with financial aid. I just filled out my forms and the rest was easy. The school is really good about helping you afford tuition.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our players are really determined for the most part. We may not have the best teams but they still play hard. And they are lucky to have the pep band backing them up and supporting them.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school really isn't that strict. They say they are, but the rules never really get enforced.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know what to say about off-campus housing.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The school is an international school so that means that we are very open to people of all backgrounds. We are still working on the sexual orientation part though.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security officers could be more quick about responding to calls, such as students getting locked out late of their room late at night.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Overall, it is a very safe campus. The only security problem that the campus has are bicycles being stolen by non-students.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, the school is a academically challenging experience and a culturally diverse one. Could use a few more things to do around town, but overall a great place.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at FIT is an amazing thing. FIT's Greek Life is heavily involved in the community as well as on campus. Greek Life helps add to the campus culture through various philanthropies and social activities.

4 College Senior

Diversity: The school has an amazingly diverse international population. You have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world (from the 6 populated continents) as well as other parts of the United States. The campus is very accepting of its diversity.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Some of the facilities are amazing while other facilities need a major renovation. To their credit, they have been remodeling many of the older structures and have laid out plans to renovate the other remaining old structures in their 5/10 years plans.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Greek life is amazing on campus and there are ample opportunities to find an organization that you fit in to.

5 College Senior

Academics: The school doesn't have tenure, so the professors have to work to improve their teaching. Most professors are good teachers and there is an extremely high academic standard.

4 College Senior

Academics: The workload is heavy, especially in the junior/senior years. The facilities are being upgraded, so that is a plus, though they removed our microelectronic fabrication lab, which is a minus. Internship and job opportunities are fairly plentiful for FIT students and graduates. The EE program has focuses on digital signal processing, wireless communication, data mining, communication systems, optical systems and sensors, and electronic fabrication and design.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus so I do not feel as if I can accurately rate the living environment.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid office is one of the most helpful groups on campus. They go out of their way to find you the money you need to complete school. This is a very good thing considering the school is pretty expensive to attend.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Overall, the "strictness" of the campus is average. Most of the time, security won't give you a hard time and the RAs won't bust you if you do not blatantly disregard the rules or their "authority". Personally, I have only had a few issues with the "authorities" on campus.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot to do in Melbourne if you enjoy the outdoors. There is also a decent amount of cultural experiences available. If you can't find anything to do in Melbourne, Orlando is only a short drive away where the is ample opportunity to find something to entertain yourself.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a variety of off-campus options including houses of various sizes and locations (sub-divisions, standard neighborhoods, etc) and apartment complexes - all at reasonable rates. Many have excellent accommodations (kitchen, washer/dryer, access to pools, etc). With a few roommates, these options become even more affordable and accessible. The only con is that you must be a junior/senior or have family in the area to move off campus.
