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 atmosphere of this Institute really brings out all creativity from inside you. Such a warm and welcoming staff that is there to answer any questions. Everyone wants you to succeed in this school. I feel it is too early to have any real opinions on what to improve in this school, but I am looking forward to my FIDM experience. I can't wait to see what the future holds!
FIDM is a great school with a lot of great teachers. The best part is that these teachers have or had experience within the industry. Its a very fast paced school that uses the quarter system. Be ready for lots of homework and labs but don't worry, you'll have a lot fun. It doesn't matter if your parents were Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan or if you've never put sprinkles on a cupcake, this school will teach exactly what you need to know about the industry.
