4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its NYC... Great places everywhere. Chelsea is a great location for restaurants

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.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't engage in nightlife experiences. I have never attended parties/clubs or anything of that nature.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The dorm security is nice to have, but a pain when you want to have someone stay over.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I cannot seem to find any scholarships that are helpful to me and I am even in the honor society here.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The school itself has no party scene. People barely even hang out or talk to each other. The girls are snooty. You go ti clubs with promoters for free, but it's not always fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The menu isn't too bad, but there are only certain times you can eat. The dining hall closes way too early.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice and clean. However they have so many rules and it's annoying.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: I actually don't have many complaints about our food hall because we have a lot of different varieties of food and it all is pretty good compared to others. We offer global foods, subs, sandwiches and wraps, all types of sushi, grilled food, salad, soups and pretty much anything else that you can name.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live right across the street from my College and what its like to live on campus is amazing. There's always so much fun things to do and see and there's 24 hour campus security everywhere so i always feel safe especially being in the big city. I live in a Co-Ed hall and my roommate is a girl who is my best friend and our dorm room is actually pretty big compared to other colleges. The cost is pretty reasonable since we're living in Manhattan but it's nothing i can pay out of pocket, I've of course taken out loans for it. The ease of housing process was fairly easy because you just had to do everything online and it didn't take very long. I would recommend this college to anyone interested in art and design or in the fashion world because it is absolutely one of the best!

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.
