As the middle of the school year approaches, those who are thinking about applying to FIT should really consider taking courses that are transferable to reduce costs and time! As an avid AP student in high school, I was determined to pass my Advanced Placement tests.
Hard work now… pays off in the future!
During my academic advisement before registration for next semester, I was told that I will be able to graduate with a BS in Advertising and Marketing Communications due to the surplus of transfer credits I had from passing so many AP tests! (not to sound like a snob, it’s hard work!) If you are in highschool, I sugguest taking as many AP courses that FIT accepts in order to save you money and time! This goes out to all transfer students as well! Utilizing transfer credits will really make a difference and have motivated myself to push harder until the end that is near!

That envelope was my unexpected reward for a year full of hard work (I mean it, just because it is fashion it doesn’t mean it’s less demanding). When my mom called to tell me I had been mailed a diploma back home I couldn’t wait for her to tell me what it was. I really had no idea, what the Dean’s List was when she told me I’d been on it for the year 2011-2012. Subsequently I dug through the FIT website and was able to find more info that today I will share with you (what a lucky bunch). I hope one day this envelope might surprise you or that you become aware of its existence and strive for this achievement.
I’m in the The Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology, and our Dean is Steven Frumkin(awesome, super intelligent man). At the end of each semester, the Dean’s list is posted and it honors students who have completed more than 12 credits and have achieved a GPA of 3.5 or better. To find the latest list (fall 2013) click here and then select your major.
After my first recognition I can proudly say, I’ve been on the list every semester. I leave you all with an inspiring quote:
