From our current issue:
This fall, FIT welcomed more than 2,000 new students. Over Orientation Week, an array of academic and social events helped acclimate students from all over the world to their new community. Words of encouragement were shared by President Joyce F. Brown and others. Two themes were clear. First, FIT is committed to providing a safe and collaborative learning environment. Second, students engage in learning both inside and outside the classroom and understand the impact of their activities on the environment.
As counselors, you know orientation can be quite transactional, making students feel like just a number. That’s why FIT takes a creative approach, with ten days of fun and interactive sessions in which upperclass students take the lead, helping new students to smooth the transition. We believe this nurturing environment leads to a successful and enjoyable first semester.
Now, with the fall recruitment cycle upon us, we in Admissions look forward to meeting you and your students as we hit the road to recruit our next class of FIT Tigers!
