3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing could be in a closer proximity to the school.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a fair amount of off-campus dining options which is nice because they are pretty close to the campus. There is also a good number of variety, it would be better if more places offered student discounts.

4 College Junior

Administration: There is always security around, which makes you feel safe all throughout the school, which is great.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial Aid can be a hassle, but it must be done on time and make sure all information is correct! I only got offered loans, which I did not want to have, so I've been applying to scholarships to help with my tuition.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: There are not many parties on campus, it is hard to find them

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I've had better meals but the food is not bad, just very expensive for what you get

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

5 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: E-mails are often sent out to all students with information about employers recruiting on campus and different internship opportunities. The connections you can make at this school can really help your future.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: Barely any teams, the teams that do exist, no one cares about them. School spirit is poor.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure about the off-campus housing situation but it is important to know that rent in NYC is incredibly high and the chances of finding a cost friendly apartment is extremely low.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's NYC, of course there will be thousands of options for food. The prices can be a bit high as you get closer to tourist areas but after a few weeks you know where to go.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Security is often strict. Obviously getting caught drinking or using drugs will land you in trouble. Walking into the dorms intoxicated will get you a ride to the hospital.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: No parties on campus at all. Either go to clubs or bars or you'll end up indoors all the time.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is disgusting and options are limited. There is sushi, grill, deli, pizza or the special. There is no variety and most of the food tastes like crap. Starbucks is the only good thing about this school.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are tiny and outdated. The lounge area is small and the kitchen area is smaller than a closet. There is no a/c in Nagler dorms and the heating is always way too high in the winter.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We dont really have Greek Life. If we do it would be one group and we only see them when they have bake sales

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are two different types of girls. The really nice ones and the ones you can barely talk to. The guys are alnost all very nice and respectful. LGBT community is widely accepted

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.
