3 College Senior

Athletics: I barely hear about them.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Much of the school spirit is revolved around fashion related events. Since FIT is a fashion and design school, most who attend are not very interested in sports. However, the sports teams on FIT are very motivated and encourage fellow students to share school spirit.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Great recreational classes, like yoga and spin.

Athletics: They plenty of gyms and facilities to participate in any extracurricular activities.. Also they have fun drop in active and athletic classes to participate in.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

FIT has intercollegiate teams in tennis, cross country, half marathon, track and field, dance, cheerleading, women's volleyball, swimming and diving, and table tennis. Students who thrive on competition should take advantage of participating in athletics.

If you do not like participating in athletic events but enjoy the excitement of being in the crowd, sporting events are free for students. Students can also venture a few blocks away to Madison Square Garden to catch a professional sporting event, such as the Rangers or Knicks. FIT teams compete against other schools in Region XV of the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Being that FIT is a fashion school, most sports are overlooked when everyone has trends and threads on the brain.
School Spirit
