3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The only thing i would have to say is there is a ton of different advisors that all give you different advice and its ll a bit confusing plus all the classes are 10 weeks long so you don't really get to get a relationship with your teachers unless you take them multiple times

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I just used it to take most of my general eds

4 College Junior

Career Services: There is a pretty good alumni program here

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are small the teachers are wonderful

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Nothing will be handed to you and the career center is kind of a joke most of the time

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: This program kicks your butt. Its a crash course in all things Fashion design and you learn so much but it is a ton of work

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You do a lot of different types of projects and work based on your major, preparing you for a career. However, most classes are group project based and general work load can be a bit much for such little pay off. The school is okay, just wish it didn't coast so much money, I think I'd enjoy my experience more if I knew that I wasn't going to be paying it off for my entire life.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: To be honest, I've never taken online classes at FIDM yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love attending this school, there are endless resources!

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.
