What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like FIT. It's a little old and could definitley use some updating, but overall it's a great experience and the school has a lot of opportunities and connections. Kaufman Hall needs to be updated, especially the gym. The C building also needs a lot of updating. But honestly I'm not there for the decor of the school, I'm here to be around creative, passionate individuals, and that's exactly what I've got.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The pros of attending FIT are (1) reasonably priced compared to school of similar reputation, (2) its location at the center of NYC fashion hub, (3) faculty's expertise, experience, and connections. Some negatives I can name are: (1) its focus on industry and consumer demands, though realistic, can sometimes stifle creativity, (2) limited funding and slow to change/update as it is a state school (though efforts have been made in recent years). Overall, I respect the students' drive and hustle - nobody is here to slack, and you will feel the pull. "FIT is what you make of it" said my ex-creative director and FIT alum; it is up to the student to make the most out their time and money spent here. You come with the creativity and vision, and FIT will teach the "how".

It's wonderful and full of energy. Very vibrant. Nobody really gets in fights and everybody is welcomed. Events are always hosted and end up good for the students and the school at the end. I believe the students would fight for this school no matter what

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the environment and small class sizes. I like how friendly most people are and how easy it is to move around campus. It is somewhat affordable and I think the curriculums are very well set up. No class is completely useless which I enjoy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Fashion Institute of Technology is a very diverse and artistic college. Many ranges of ages and races come together to share things they love like fashion, art, and design. It’s a very good school to expand your knowledge of what you want to learn and there are many opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fashion institute of technology is perfect for the creative individual looking for a school that can cater to their needs. It’s also perfect for someone who truly appreciates art in all its different forms. At FIT, I know I can get the education I need to help me do something I love in the future. It’s a win-win!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I AM AT HOME WHEN I ATTEND CLASSES. THERE'S NO OTHER PLACE I'D RATHER BE. THEY HELP ME TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF ME AND ISN'T THAT HOW A SCHOOL SHOULD BE? I FIRST VISITED THE FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY A FEW YEARS AGO AND WAS ABLE TO SPEAK WITH A FEW GRADUATING STUDENTS AND WITNESS FIRST HAND WHAT BEING A STUDENT THERE WOULD BE LIKE. I'VE BEEN IN LOVE EVER SINCE.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my school. I have met my best friends and gave gained so many opportunities through my school and my club. My mentors and professors were so much help along the way whether it was helping me find a internship or job or even helping me apply for my MA Degree. I was able to dorm for one semester, but commuted 4 years as a whole and was able to receive a discount for NJ Transit. I also had the opportunity studied abroad for three weeks in the summer and it was the BEST decision I have made at my entire career at FIT. I will truly miss FIT and am so grateful for all the school has given me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy attending FIT. My professors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and I feel like I am learning a lot in my courses. With that being said, I do find some cons with the school. For example, the design of the school is not very stimulating. It's quite bland and empty and sometimes stints my creative thoughts. Another thing is the dorming. I personally find some of the rules a little excessive; for example, signing in and out, especially students who attend the school but don't dorm. I understand it is safety precaution being that we are located in midtown Manhattan but I do find it to be annoying. Also overnights having to be registered prior to 4pm is the most insane rule because I cannot control circumstances and need be I have to have someone stay with me, I find it ridiculous that I have to jump through hoops in order to accomplish that. Location wise, the school is perfect for career but I do wish we were located more downtown and a similar feel to NYU.
