Campus Resources at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles: There is no on campus life. You go to school, you sit in class, have lunch and go home. Everyone commutes to school and most people are always tired because they sit in so much traffic to even get into la. Parking ranges from $5-$30 depends on the day and the events are going on. The amount of work you get is the same amount of a full time job. The teachers really prepare you for what life is going to throw at you in the industry. If you are not sure this is what you want to do in life, don't go to this school.

Academic Experience at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles: You really get thrown into the career that you want. The networks and opportunities are there for you, it is up to you to take head. There are always internships and job opportunities that are happening through the school into the actual work business. All of my professors are current in their area of expertise, so networking continues inside the classroom. For example, my major is visual communications and I have had the opportunity to assist with set up production for the Oscars. Every homework project that is assigned is to help build a portfolio, which our career center helps organize to make a successful and impressive resume.

Academic Experience at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles: The academics offered at my school are average. It is not over the top with workload compared to my AP classes in high school. However, it is challenging in a creative way. You have to come up with something new, reinvent yourself, and try to successfully marry art and a message or theme.

Campus Resources at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles: The network at my school is extremely helpful in more way than just academics. We have a career center that help guide students into their career, they treat you more like a friend than a student. Our student center is very warming and welcoming and as well as our campus activities. Being that this is a design school, the aesthetics are pleasing and stylish.
