4 College Student

Administration: They are really helpful when needed. They are also quite kind.

3 College Student

Campus Food: I chose not to eat often at the dining hall if I could help it.

4 College Student

Party Scene: I have only partied a few times, it is not really my thing. IT was really fun though when I did go out.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I am in love with a café that is right next to the school. I love all of the options in general. Could not have asked for better.

4 College Student

Scholarships: I received almost as much financial aid that would be needed for me to go to school at FIT.

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus, however, I did not have the best roommate and that made living there my first semester a bit difficult. Other than that it is sanitary, has washer and dryers, security, etc.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is expensive so you probably have to become a commuter.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I use the meal plan and the food is good but repetitive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is not worth all the money and I do not even get to live on campus. Whether or not I want to return I cannot because I applied for housing 20 minutes late and did not get it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's NYC so it's expensive and places are small.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its NYC so it's great

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Kids here usually party off campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I feel safe and feel the students interests are at heart.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Considering the amount of inquiries they get its OK. Once you get onto a person, they are helpful and friendly

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Its a mid city campus so its adequate. Plus many of the dorms have kitchens so many people, including me, cook for ourselves.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Considering it's in the heart of NYC campus housing is good value. Very Safe

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I personally live on campus but I hear from others that they love it. It is nice to have your own place and not have rules to follow.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Its NYC! There are plenty of options to choose from. The food is expensive but delicious.

3 College Junior

Administration: Its college and so the school needs to set boundaries for students to follow. Its not that strict but they do not let any alcohol on campus.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It is different because the campus is located in the city. While it is fun to go out here, you do not get the "college" experience.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It is not a fun process but I did not mind filling it out. In the end I received what I needed.

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.
