This school offers real world experience and a business meets art influence. If you want a job fast in the industry you want come to FIT. This school is in a category of its own, if you are a student looking for the 'REAL' college experience of frats, house parties, and drinking ; FIT is not for you. Come here ready to dedicate your life to your major. You need to eat, breathe, and only think about your major. Designers and artists especially.
This is a state university for design, which is pretty cool that it's a public university. A bargain compared to neighboring Parsons Design School. However, it feels like a state institution. Like a continuation of high school. The buildings aren't pretty and the facilities aren't fancy. You can tell that they are strapped for money, but you are getting a decent design education considering the public school tuition.
