      As a student who just recently visited the FIDM Los Angeles campus, I can say that my first impressions of the school greatly met my expectations. The campus is beautiful! Each class has about 15 students or less which if you enjoy being in a smaller setting, you'd definitely love FIDM. Everyone is friendly and I cannot wait to start my freshman year in the Fall.

      Taking classes online is fairly easy! I was not sure what to expect but I really appreciate how well the instructors communicate and reply back to messages in a timely manner. Online classes are really convenient when you have a busy work schedule or just do not have the time to commute to school.
      It's amazing! The classes look incredible, the teachers and staff are so supportive, and it has so many great opportunities for a young designer.
