Academic Experience: They always make sure students don't feel overwhelmed. They assure and help achieve success.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Class registration and study options have always been a plus. Libraries and turtors are always available.

Campus Resources: They offer everything I'd ever need to complete something!

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The problem with having such a small major is that I don't have freedom to pick the days or times of my classes. This is very frustrating because if I wanted a consistent schedule or to pick certain days, I can't really do that. I prefer morning classes and this quarter I have two late night ones. I've adjusted to the times, but it's not what I want.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experience has been working in the studio. It is so much fun to be able to work with the same tools I will be working with for my profession and to be taught how to use them and the proper care for them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers at FIDM are mainly people who have been in the business your major is in or in the fashion industry somehow. Class sizes depend on the major. Mine is not as popular as the fashion or marketing majors, so my classes tend to be ten people or less, and I prefer it that way. It feels like we are a family and are always helping each other out.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: FIDM holds job fairs at the beginning of each quarter, so theres constant ways to find work that way. We are required to have an internship in our second year which we have career services help place us with. They always work hard to find the best suited for you and are very friendly. After graduation, FIDM helps place you with a job and the alumni network is also helpful when it comes to that.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken online classes.

Student Body: The best part of attending FIDM is the acceptance of all students and majors. No matter what classes you're taking, everyone always thinks everyones projects are outstanding, which they are. We mostly have girls attending but there seems to be a lot more boys lately because I think more are branching out. FIDM has a huge variety of ethnicities, we are definitely one big melting pot of a campus.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Although FIDM is very expensive, it is definitely worth it for the education I am receiving. I could never have learned any of this on my own and am so glad to be attending. I am on financial aid and the people who work in the office are always helpful with any questions I have. Each end of a quarter, you have to make sure you are clear financially before registering for the next quarter. The office is always helpful with telling me what I need to complete to continue registering. The process was very easy for me to receive financial aid.

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.
