Overall

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.

Academics

Class size is usually around 25-30 students even in liberal art classes. Professors are extremely helpful and understand that FIT demands a lot from its students. Workload is crazy, but its worth it in the end. As long as your a self motivated individual you will strive at FIT.

College Life

Well your in NYC, the greatest city in America. Nightlife is popular especially for the ladies. The campus has activities but everyone is usually jam packed diligent with work to even consider attending.

Overall

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.

Academics

Some professors were at the top of their game. Some professors couldn't even spell "professor." It's a mixed bag. A couple of my professors that taught haute couture and tailoring were older, and old-school, which is what you want when you are learning these classic techniques. But I had a couple professors that seemed like they were teaching night school or driver's ed, not very intelligent or enlightening at all.

College Life

You're smack in the middle of Chelsea in NYC. Can't ask for a better location to study fashion design. You're in the thick of it. You have all the city has to offer at your fingertips. Living in NYC is unlike any other experience. Worth it alone to go to this school and live in NYC. You can't study fashion design anywhere else.

Overall

What I like most about the school is its diversity and emphasis on integrating you into real life job situations, allowing you to gain experience and make connections. Also it's in a very prominent location where many fashion businesses are located. I also really aprechiated the students and faculty hospitality and friendliness.

Academics

There is a very small amount of students to teachers which is very nice because it allows students to receive the help they need. They also offer small class sizes so learning is an intimate experience which allows for better understanding of the subject your studying.

College Life

There is many events on campus but overall your campus is new York city so there is always exciting and interesting things to take part in. Also the school offers many diverse athletic and social groups which is very rare for a fashion school.
