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.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: I have never been so displeased. The schools dining hall is absolutely disgusting. I understand working there may not be the most glamorous job but the staff is so rude.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus has made the experience better as a transfer student. Being new to the school, it was easier to make friends and get involved in activities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like being right across the street from my classes. It is very affordable to live on campus, but housing is not guaranteed after the first year. The suites are nice but can be difficult if you are placed with random people and have to share cleaning of the kitchen and bathroom. As a transfer student it was an easy transition.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am very happy with the food!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I dont live on campus, but I am there all the time. FIT has the best campus. The whole environment is amazing. I am surrounded by motivated students every day. Everyone who works at FIT's campus are also so friendly.

College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not part of sports or any teams. I have however seen FIT's spectacular gyms and fitness facilities and highly approve.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute and do not dorm or live in an apartment near campus.

5 College Freshman

Administration: They give students room to breathe while restricting potentially dangerous situations. A good balance.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid instructions are prevalent and many students benefit from Financial Aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Very expensive for the quantity and not always fresh or well refrigerated. I don't eat at the Dining Hall due to repeated bad experiences with their food.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't have experience with this

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since I'm in New York, there's a ton of options

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some members are not friendly

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: My school doesn't offer scholarships

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The only option is clubbing

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We have nice dorms, but no air conditioning

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You have to find your own apartment and they are usually not safe and not cheap. The off campus dorms fill up too fast and do not occupy enough students who want housing.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options, however they are not cheap. If you want to eat in NY you will have to spend some money.

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.
