What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it because the students are very similar to me and I feel like I fit in well and feel comfortable. It is a very artistic and supportive group who wants to see each other win. It is in the heart of DTLA and gives us access to many events and opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it was a fun experience. You have to really love what you are doing and want to work within the fashion industry to follow through with the school work and get the full understanding of the different areas that you need to know to work within the industry. I felt the teachers graded everyone the same, even though everyone wasn’t understanding or putting in the same effort and that is why I would say you have to want it for yourself to get the learning you need. I love pattern making, design, sewing and drawling, so for me, I loved my experience and took advantage of all the additional resources.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

FIDM is a great school for creative, passionate students. They offer programs and activities that you won't find at most universities and the smaller environment allows better relationships among professors and students. I am so glad I heard about them and get to pursue my dream of going into the Beauty industry!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college FIDM in the city of Los Angeles is a good school. Every student I’ve met at the Institute, is mostly hard working and wants to put in the work to become successful in their future career of their choice. The school provides many opportunities to get involved, as written in their weekly newsletters and monthly calendar. We don't really have a proper cafeteria, it's mainly an eating section with vending machines. The professors are industry professionals who either work or worked in the retail, entertainment, social media, design, writing, or marketing industry. I don't live on campus or in La, I live with my parents and commute to save money because the cost to dorm or rent an apartment in La is like a monthly house payment. The classrooms are a good size. They offer opportunity to ask questions to your professor and actually get to know them. The curricular has projects you would do or make in the industry after graduation. I actually don't don't get involved much because I live far, but I've heard good things about the clubs and actives. The nearby shops and stores are available if you know where they are. There's a FIDM Cafe with healthy foods, Ralph's, Subway, and multiple restaurants.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose FIDM because I saw the opportunities that came with getting my degree. Because FIDM is in the heart of Los Angeles which is the city of entertainment, I saw this school as the place where I can make my dreams come true. I've searched through so many colleges for the Digital Media/ Digital Cinema major, and nothing fit my description of what I was looking for except for FIDM. Another great aspect of why I was so drawn to FIDM was that the instructors that are at FIDM are actually working in the industry world that you might be studying. To be taught by someone who has your dream career is extremely rare because you get the first-hand teachings of what you're going to do meaning learning the skills and techniques that they use.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is a great school to attend if you are interested in arts. If you want to study fashion or marketing there is no better school than the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. The housing they provide allow you to get know your peers better . You can be roomed with people in the same major allowing your to have someone to bounce your ideas off of , in the comfort of your own home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of FIDM is extremely positive, from academic to school facilities. First and foremost, it has the biggest library in the west coast; each class only contains around 10 students. Therefore, students can learn more efficiently than other colleges. The ambiance in class is competitive yet students have very positive attitudes. Moreover, there are numerous of students’ activities; which allow students to be prepared for their future career and mingle with other students in the same time. Although, we don’t have a cafeteria but there is a student café and microwave at the student lounge, plus there are different restaurants near by. The professors are knowledgeable and helpful; there is a career center to help students to find part-time jobs during school. There is job fair every quarter yet internship to help students to enter the fashion field. Even though the tuition is awfully expensive, however, all the books and supplies are included. The location of my school is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles where is a metropolitan and cultural area. My only complain is the water fountains at school are not the cleanest. There are some students are not serious enough, due to lack of commitments and they think fashion doesn’t required hard work. About 20% of the students drop out every year at my school, usually they are from a wealthy family and spoiled. That would be beneficial to the hard working students at the end. Homework is plenty, so time management is important for those whom are working while studying. I highly recommended this school for people who are serious towards fashion.
