Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my FIT experience overall so far. The professors are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about our field (fashion design). I have definitely improved and refined my skills with their guidance.

A huge complaint that I have is that the environment can be hard to work in. The rooms in which I've had classes are (in fact) almost 90 degrees most of the year (in the summer, fall, and spring). I suffer with easily becoming overheated and would often have to go outside to prevent passing out.

The equipment isn't reliable. For example, once when I was in a full class, we were wrongly put into a classroom half the size of the usual ones which had no windows. We were sharing one iron (which sometimes didn't work) causing a huge line a slower productivity.

In one of our buildings, students are forbidden from using the elevator, so we use the alternate, the escalators. These escalators were rarely all working, forcing me (a commuter with a 10+ pound bag of supplies) to walk up 6-8 flights.

Overall my learning experience at FIT has been an extremely positive one but the actual environment has not.

Health & Safety: Felt pretty safe on campus as you can be when you're in New York City. Never felt unsafe even I was on campus later in the evening.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't a huge part of campus life, but they are there. I don't know how supported the sports teams are at school because I've never attended one. The athletic facilities are decent, I just wish the gym space with all the workout equipment was a little bigger for those that actually want to use it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had pretty high expectations about FIT, and it didn't meet all of those expectations unfortunately. Despite that, I still believe that if you are wanting to be in the fashion industry in any aspect and want a foot in the door, this is the best place to be to get that experience.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: F.I.T is a dry campus and try their best to enforce that.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors that I have had can teach the subject well enough to understand. There is not much variety when it comes to choosing major classes because everyone much does the same classes. But in general education, there is much more of a variety. There are certain classes that also have to be taken because F.I.T is a SUNY school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Internships are strongly suggested in every major, usually during the bachelor's degree. The school constantly host events for internships/ jobs and recruiting. At least once a month the fashion design students are informed of such events and weekly.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe on campus because my school goes to large measures to ensure safety. The use of the ID card ar a constant throughout the school in order to enter the school and sign out the classrooms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Three dorms are offered to incoming / new transfer students while one dorm building is offered for returning students. With a large student body of out-of-state students and international students more space is needed in the dorms. The apartment style dorm are better than tradition because the students are able to cook for themselves and have better control over their diet and money. The freshman dorms are convenient across the street from the campus, so working late into the night is easier to do. The housing process is okay and depending on who your advisor is the faster the process goes. The social atmosphere within the dorms includes much isolation. The most communication is made with your roommate(s) /suitemate(s) and not the others on your floor.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is constantly encouraged and also the participation of the student body is encouraged. The Athletic facilities are well kept.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The education that I am receiving meets my expectations, and I would choose the school again if e=given the chance.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The majority of students agrees that the quality of education they receive extends beyond the price that is paid. The FIT faculty has extensive knowledge of the industry and delivers real-world experience to students. Students are also given the chance to expand their learning outside of the New York City classroom, with internships and study abroad programs. Those students who tend to look negatively at FIT are those who are uninvolved and do not take advantage of what the school has to offer.

With the lack of a social scene, lack of a real campus, and the overwhelming amount of girls, students overlook these aspects and value the experiences and opportunities instead. New York City is where dreams can happen. If you stay focused and work hard, you will develop skills and confidence that will lead to a successful career.
