4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had many mediocre professors, but around half are excellent. It really depends. There are a lot of great professors in the marketing/english/design department, but not so much for topics like math and science. Class sizes are nice and small.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I mostly search on my own for career prospects.

Campus Housing: Dorms of course are always convenient, and you get to choose your roommates. However, prices are unreasonable; many students easily find apartments to rent that are cheaper.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I know people who participate in sports, but I never hear much about it. Sports are not a huge part of campus life or for the school in general.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: FIT is great because the curriculum for your major begins right when you get in. Unlike many other colleges, the first two years is not spent solely doing gen eds. For me, I like that the class sizes are small and I have made many great relationships with great professors.

Greek Life: Don't have greek life, which I'm happy about

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally, I love FIT. The professors are amazing

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are not really a focus at FIT. Since I attend a fashion school, it is not huge part of campus life. There are many sports offered like volleyball and cross-country but do not have a spotlight on any sports here at FIT.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Quiet, people tend to watch movies or be working. If they go out, they keep quiet

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You go off campus or to NYU for a party

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Interesting to meet people from different areas, people are respectful understanding we all grew up in different places and come from different backgrounds. There are definitely more liberals in the NYC atmosphere, but there is a fair share of republicans

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not entirely the schools fault, but people quickly catch on where in Manhattan they do not card and can get alcohol. There isn't necessarily drinking in dorms more so off campus and people come back intoxicated

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: People have been easily sneaking into dorms-- problems include stealing and sexual assault

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Have not had a bad professor, they go out of their way to help and are so knowledgable in the field.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Always employers on campus, it isn't difficult to find it yourself off campus in the city, but there are always recruiters in retail on campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Almost impossible to have guests, hard to make friends because the doors don't prop open. No private bathrooms, no fridges or microwaves allowed under any circumstance-- can't reheat food or save food... Roommates can only have one guest at a time

2 College Freshman

Athletics: It is a fashion school, we have one facility to keep us in shape, but I use New York City to walk and keep active, most people have jobs anyways and walk to them, it's an active enough city that it isn't as though we are at a lack of activity.

Overall Experience: The professors are so amazing, and the atmospher is just perfect. It is very different from a typical college, but this is the place to be in order to be the best in the field, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

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.
