4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is great. The staff and students are amazing. You always have something to do and you always feel like you're part of the campus. You are encouraged daily to aspire higher and seek help if you need it. Free tutoring services and activities are always provided on the campus and the outcome was always great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are wonderful, they know exactly what to teach you to prepare you for the real world because they were very successful in their lives. All in all they offer a lot of activities for the students and the academic advisors are very helpful. Only issue would be the lack of appearance, certain parts of the school looks great and operates well and other parts need updating and work done. The computers need updating as well and to be better taken care of. The food on campus also is pretty bland. The education is what matters most which is why FIT gets a 4 out of 5.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love FIT! It isn't your typical college experience, but if you love fashion and the industry then I couldn't imagine a better place to be. All of the teachers have been or are currently working in the industry so they are extremely knowledgeable. There are a lot of group projects which may be difficult, but they are very "real world" oriented and I have already learned a lot. FIT is constantly keeping me inspired not only because it is in NYC, but because the student body is so diverse. The administration can be disorganized at times and you don't get the typical social experiences that other campuses provide, but these definitely aren't big losses because you have the city as your playground.

Overall Experience: I'n super excited to start my freshman year in the fall. All my interactions with FIT so far have been positive!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being thousands of miles away from home has both its perks and bad qualities. Although I am away from home and miss my family; it is great I love living in the city, especially for Fashion design i am inspired a lot by the city. What makes my school unique is the fact that they teach the students their career the first semester they arrive, instead of giving them foundation year. Something I would have done differently is go to a community school the first two years and transfer ; saving money.

Off-Campus Housing: Well, I've never lived off campus, its too expensive. I mean, I would love to live off campus but its not an option for me because I'm an out of state student.

Party Scene: I've been to small get-togethers with friends. Nothing big- I'm not a big party person.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's lots of great small places around campus. Prices are okay, it depends on where you go. But there's lots of different types of food around the area, which nice if you want to try something new.

3 College Junior

Administration: We have to sign in and do over night passes for guests. Show ID when we enter any building. So, our campus is very safe and protective.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Well, I don't have a meal plan. Some of my friends have them and, they complain about how fatty the foods can be. The plans are also expensive.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient, safe, and easy to live in.

4 College Student

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

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.

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.

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.
