5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is the best because you can be yourself without being judged by others. You also get hands on experience and get into your major right away! There a lot of internships and careers you can get yourself into before you graduate.

Online Courses: i actually have never taken any online classes so i wouldn't know

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: the class sizes are small, probably 10 or less a class, there is always help when you need it. Labs are offered and extra help. you can go to anyone's lab and they will help you out with what you need

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: everyone there is very helpful and they want you to succeed in your profession (also because it will make them look like a better school). A lot of teachers are helpful and very nice and they all know what they are talking about. its somewhat crazy being taught by these people, they are so good at what they do. some teachers you can do without but most are great.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: They give us a lot of projects to work on but I believe that it will truly help with whatever job you are working towards. I believe that everything I have learned so far has benefited me greatly. I haven't taken any internships yet although I know that they offer a lot of internships and jobs every day at the career center. Also take advantage of the library

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is really hard to create a social life, especially when you are socially awkward. everyone there is over 20 and I am 18 when I started. Everyone knows what they want to do and how they are going to do it. they aren't distracted with things like creating friendships. it is also a really intense school. they go by the quarter system and all of the classes go by in such a fast pace.

Overall Experience: As a student ambassador, i love the diversity and creativity i am constantly surrounded by.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to transfer a few credits, but because it had been so long since I was in school, I decided to retake the classes so that I could get more out of them and refresh my memory.

4 College Senior

Career Services: I have not had too much interaction with the career services yet, but so far what I have had was great. Everyone is so helpful and positive.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors and instructors are great. They are super knowledgable and helpful and have all worked in the industry. The class sizes are reasonable and i feel like i get adequate attention if I need assistance or need help. I feel that they all care about each and every one of the student's well being as long as we are willing to work hard. They will put forth the effort, if the students do.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's a lot of work, but I am learning so much and getting prepared for the real world in the career I hope to achieve. The workload is intense, but in the end I know it will be worth it and it will all pay off. The campus is beautiful and the staff and instructors are great. Everyone here is so nice. There is even a career center to help find jobs.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been wanting to attend this school for over 12 years and now that I finally have the opportunity, I am so blessed and grateful to be able to be taught by industry professionals. I am excited to learn and grow and start a career.

Career Services: It's only helpful if you make a strong effort. They will never come to you! You have to make the step towards wanting help. Again, it all depends who you work with as well.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

FIDM is a unique experience that many people are glad to be a part of. FIDM allows students to learn about the fashion and design industry in classes and then apply their newly-acquired skills to real world experience and internships. It's one thing to hear, "Oh, you'll use this one day. . ." and a completely different thing to see it right before your eyes—hands on. The Career Center is a really good resource for helping current students find internships and jobs, as well as helping alumni stay connected.

Through online coursework and blocked scheduling, FIDM also succeeds in helping students get an education while working around complicated schedules. Students are able to attend school full-time, work part-time, and hold down a part-time internship—all at the same time. Many students remark that FIDM was a better experience than they could have hoped for. It might sound cliché, but they mean it.
