From the moment I decided to go to FIT, it was a great fit, excuse the pun. The advisors helped me get funding, scheduled classes and made going back to school after 17 years less scary. I am also doing online classes, which is great for my schedule. They are really an amazing school, especially since this is my first adventure with online classes. Best schooling decision ever!

Though the environment is light and fun, academics standing and expectations are very tough. The school do facilities multiple academic support centers for all subjects matters to see students through the rigor of the curriculum. Classes are small, so all your professors know you and attendance is mandatory. There is much to do to keep you active outside of academics, from social and cultural clubs, dance groups, academic societies and non varsity team sports.

The food selection and flavors are just amazing in every eating location. There are several pools throughout the campus to keep you cool. A relaxing botanical gardens on campus makes for the perfect serene place to get away from it all.
Awesome faculty! Really makes me feel good! Great food! Great dorms, I love where I stay. There are a lot of events that make this school fun. It can be a hard school, so dedication is needed to persist through challenges. Only bad thing is the internet there is not that good at all, goes out way too much for how much the school costs.
