Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The ratio between girls and guys at FIT can be overwhelming at times. In classes, it is easily recognized that there are more girls than guys, depending on the major. Either way, guy or girl, students should not get discouraged by this. If you're a girl, there are plenty of young, cute men (or women) in New York City that are looking for you, too. If you're a straight guy, there are plenty of girls at FIT from which to choose. If you're a gay man, take advantage of the gay culture within the Chelsea neighborhood that FIT resides.

A dating scene does not really exist at FIT. There are some guys and girls that date, but the majority of dating happens within the gay community. If you are a girl and can find a straight guy to date at FIT, that is a rare commodity, and you will often see awkward glances from your peers. If you come to FIT dating your high school sweetheart, then it's a perfect place to find your gay best friend.

There is a lack of a social scene on campus, with few athletic events. Students establish a group of friends and tend to stick with that group throughout their years at FIT.
Hookups or Relationships?
A lot of girls on campus are in relationships, but not with guys from FIT. Girls: don't expect to meet the love of your life at FIT. Guys: if you're gay, your chances are far higher; if you're straight, FIT is full of hot girls.
Dress Code
There are no rules when it comes to dress at FIT. You will see hundreds of different styles on a normal day. The key is to know what looks good without trying too hard.

Did You Know?
A lot of students find that they do not have time to date, whereas at other schools, college can be where you find your soul mate.
