Seems like a good school but only visited for one day. The students seemed busy and we're talking about finals. Has a very good reputation in the Fashion industry. Well known and considered one of the top fashion schools in the world. buildings looked old and outdated
Going into my second year, I’ve experienced the school and the environment enough to know the energy will remain pretty similar throughout my education. The social aspect is lacking greatly due to its location (NYC) and the overall driven, plastic, “influencer” vibe of the people. Making connections can be hard and I often find myself more intrigued with teachers rather than my peers. This isn’t to say finding people is impossible, it’s just more difficult without having a sense of community or campus. I am enjoying my time and education at the school. I find that the professors I have had so far are well equipped and experienced in the field, making me more confident in my skills and career path. I look forward to my years to come.
I Love my time at FIT. The people are great and the classes are interesting
I WANT TO BECOME PART OF THE SCHOOL.

Don't freakout about changing colleges and majors. This is the time to experiment with different career ideas and options. More importantly just be happy, finding something that you can be passionate about is essential to having a happy job.
FIT is diverse and creative. It fosters a liberal and open-minded environment that is highly focused on hands-on/real-world industry experience. It is constantly connected to what's happening in the industry by being in touch with alumni, companies looking for interns/future employees, and by employing professors who are still working within their industry. FIT is hightly focused on after-graduation job placement and has a high success rate in doing so.
My classmates are creative, forward-thinking and bright.
the professors an the careers
I love the location and everything the city has to offer. Even though there aren't as many school activities, career opportunities, or good cafeteria food there is plenty of it surrounding the campus.
I can not think of anything that is the worst.
they accept very little students, calvin klein went here, students dress up for class
Hard to get accepted to with great network connections, industry experience, and allows you to be yourself.
You should definitely be interested in fashion or media.
You will be career ready but maybe less educated in liberal arts than someone at a regular school.
Creative, focused people who like a challenge. Someone that is not afraid to be different or express themselves. Also, someone who is good at managing their time and handling a lot of work at once.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that i am only allowed a maximum of 21 credits per semester. I wish i had more time to attend more classes and learn more from their wonderful program.
how hard it would be on me financially to liek in new york
Challening but we will be competing in the real world so thank you, faculty, for not giving us a pass.
If you come with ability and desire the resources are here. If you're coming primarily to party or go to frat events or football games go to Ohio State. To be in New York where it is all happening is incredible because of the interplay with people doing professionally and internationally the things you are studying.
Lots of ad hoc social events. Some teachers invited you to things. And, hey, this is New York.
Pretty much true.
Everyone is very dedicated to making their career happen and everyone is very artsy.
The stereotype of students at The Fashion Institute of Technology are students that are just super artsy and really into fashion. Which is entirely true. This is the perfect school to immerse yourself with people with the same interest and passions that you have. You will have an opportunity to meet friends who will inspire and challenge you and help you grow as an individual.
