My Dorm

Ciao ladies and gents,

Sorry I’ve been away (partly not that sorry, was having too much fun) , I had an amazing Spring Break in Belgium where I got to visit my friends and family from when I studied there in 2009. Now, I’m back to the real life (yeah, like living in Rome and traveling every weekend is the REAL life) and it’s time I catch up with you guys 🙂

My definite question right now is: to dorm or not to dorm? I’ve been living in the Residential Halls for 3 years now and even though it has been awesome experience (with some annoying twists parfois), I feel the time to become independent is upon me. Meanwhile, when I’m apartment hunting, I realize all the perks living in the dorms has. Aside from it being PRIME real estate in Chelsea, it is so amazing to just be able to walk or scooter (like I do) and be there in 5-7 minutes.

Without any further ado, I have become famous once again (yeah, right) with my past dorm-room coming in at minute 4:15 (although that is not my door, oops)  in the new Kaufman Hall video tour. I’m the bed with the green lizard, and it’s my orange computer in the dining room table (with my mid-day break cooking show Mazola Academy), and the beautiful roses my boyfriend sent me.

Enjoy with caution (I’m already tempted to move back in) !

      Hi Hannah 🙂 There are a bunch of advantages to becoming an RA! Here are some of the benefits that can be found at the FIT website (
      Incentives of being an RA:

      Guaranteed single space
      Early registration each semester for classes
      10% Discount at FIT Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Fashion Design Bookstore
      $50 Declining Balance for cafeteria
      Book Stipend- $450 for RA’s living in apartments and $550 for RA’s living in traditional rooms each semester. (This is added to in-state stipend)
      Stipends (5 disbursements each semester) equivalent to New York in-state upper/lower division depending upon the status of the individual.
      Residential Life apparel such as t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc.
      Movie tickets and meal vouchers during Move-In.

      They start looking for candidates in October during the Fall Semester and you will see flyers all over campus. It is a year-long commitment and incredible fun! If you have any other questions let me know 🙂

    What do you mean by “Stipends (5 disbursements each semester) equivalent to New York in-state upper/lower division depending upon the status of the individual”? Will FIT pay for my housing if I become an RA? Also, how selective is the process? Is it difficult to get the job?
