I am so excited to say I have officially finished my freshman year at F.I.T! This year has been a roller coaster of excitement, happiness, and a little bit of stress. I have definitely learned and enjoyed a lot of things during this year and I wanted to share some with you.
3 Things I learned:
Give yourself enough time to take the train just incase there is a delay.
Make friends to do homework/study with. (I know this may be seem insignificant, but my friend Tiyahna and I helped each other out a lot. When it came to making study sheets and finishing difficult homework we always worked together)
Make good connections with your professors, this always helps when needing extra time for an assignment.
3 Things I enjoyed:
The Annual Drag Pageant was such a fun event, and I got to meet my favorite drag queen Alyssa Edwards.
Working in the admissions office. I remember just last year I was calling the admissions office as a prospective students, and now a year later i’m answering those same questions I had but as a student/employee.
Seeing other students work. It constantly surprises me everyday when I see new students work on display, because i’m so thrilled to be going to a school with such talented people.
I have really enjoyed my first year and can’t wait to come back for the fall semester. I hope you enjoy your summer and get to experience new things but until next time… Jacob, signing off!
FIT will become the second State University of New York (SUNY) institution to offer degree programs at SUNY Korea in Songdo as of August 2017. SUNY is the first American university in Korea and is also SUNY’s first global campus outside of the United States.
The FIT programs being offered in Korea are, you guessed it, Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management―two signature curricula of the college. These programs reflect the college’s commitment to providing industry-ready graduates for the fashion industry and its related businesses.
FIT’s location in Korea makes it the college’s third location abroad, along with Milan and Florence, and extends the institution’s global reach.
The application deadline is June 30 and, after that, admission is on a rolling basis. Admitted students will earn their AAS degree at FIT at SUNY Korea and may then apply to FIT’s bachelor’s degree programs in New York.
