3 College Junior

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.

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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: FIT combines business with fashion in a way that is determined to give each and everyone one of their students the best of both worlds, so to say and strives to help you achieve a goal in the field of your dreams.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone shows school spirit at FIT. Clubs are way bigger than sports though. New clubs are built everyday and everyone participates. I was apart of the Archery Club & Team for a year. It is fun.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love FIT. I meet new people everyday, there are many opportunities and connections to make, and everyday is fun and creative and lively. I would choose FIT all over again, college is fun!

Health & Safety: The security is very good they're all kind and do their jobs well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Our school has great networking events and so many tools to help us with jobs after graduation I'm very confident I will be able to get a good entry level position.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are really cool and clean but if you live in New York I wouldn't dorm. It's so expensive.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know too much about this. I'm not sure that there is a greek life presence on campus

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.
