COMMENT THREAD: HEADPHONES IN THE ELEVATOR?

In Hue‘s fall/winter issue, etiquette experts Yvonne and Yvette Durant ’72 solve common office quandaries, on appropriate outfits, cubicle decor, and texting during meetings, among others. Our beloved Liz Starin ’09 illustrated the piece.

Now Hue wants to hear from you, gentle reader! We’ll be posting some of the most contentious topics in the coming weeks. This week, let’s talk about headphones:

Please leave your thoughts in the comments field. (Be nice! Hue is a stickler for decorum.)

YES, FIT OFFERS MORE THAN ONE MAJOR

Hue is tired of having to explain to people that, although FIT is proud of its many super-talented fashion-designer alumni, lots of people here have zero aspiration of becoming a fashion designer. So Hue made a word cloud of all of FIT’s degree-bearing majors.

Yes, these relate to fashion. Yes, FIT is the largest school in the nation that trains employees of the fashion industry. No, you do not have to know anything about clothing to come to FIT (though it can’t hurt).

This is all well and good, you say, but that word cloud doesn’t take into account how big the Fashion Design major is. Don’t most people come to FIT for Fashion Design?

Well, this next word cloud is weighted by the number of graduates in each major.

Fashion Merchandising Management is the largest major here, by a long shot.

What about all those tiny majors that look like space debris? Hue was kind enough to make another weighted word cloud, this time without the big three.

Hue rests its case.
