I absolutely love that most students at FIDM make you feel welcomed and enjoy being in most classes with fellow classmates. I also appreciate the opportunity for success with labs, office hours, and most professors accommodate your needs for your best success.
Some professors I feel teach you as if you already go into FIDM knowing material which makes it hard for some students to understand the full concept of the subject.
I am picky on little things, sometimes I feel students spend extra money when it it unnecessary and should be included with our tuition.
At times I find it frustrating when equipment is constantly broken, i understand accidents happen but sergers are very sensitive & mostly jammed.
For the most part the staff is pretty persistent to fix whatever is needed and usually arrive in a timely matter.

Great teachers and curriculum! Small classes mean more time to pay attention and learn the various subjects they have to offer. Also, lifetime access to the career center is a plus!
The first year of attending was an adjustment period. At first glance, the school seems to be filled with entitled students who only went to school because rheir dad forced them to. Once you get deeper into the program those types of people start to dwindle. I would definitely recommend furthering your education and attending the BS programs. It takes about a 1 1/2 to complete, but it’s and entirely different experience. Fidm also offers a lot of resources for research and development.
