Overall Experience: FIDM will benefit you if you make the benefits yourself. Every college is the same in this way. Schools are meant to guide you in the right direction and provide you with the basic tools...It is what the student does with these tools that determine their success. The other tools, the student needs to find on their own. In other words, FIDM gives you the layout of where you need to go... it then becomes a matter of how to get there...and with what tools.

Overall Experience: FIDM is what you make of it. I've seen many prosper and land big jobs and others that drop the first quarter. Your creativity and determination is what helps flourish your career path. So many people network with students and professors there which made the whole school a huge network center. I loved every minute there and look forward to going back for my bachelor's degree in design.

Overall Experience: There is literally no other school like FIDM. They really give you the opportunity to challenge yourself with classes that specifically pertain to your major and make sure to give you the opportunities you need to build a solid career. The professors are all in the industry and can give you real-life advice and help to become successful. It is one of the most diverse and interesting schools, where students come all over the world to attend. I've never felt so comfortable in a school because everyone is accepted and no one is considered "different."

Campus Resources: Great student career center and student activities. Students receive help from faculty members in the career center, on how to apply for internships and jobs. The student activity center is always hosting and announce great events for students. Such as inviting guest speaking alumni, to speak to students about their success after graduating from FIDM.

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.
