  2. Hello,
    I am very much interested in the pre-college courses that you offer here at FIT. I am a high school sophomore who has always been interested in FIT and the fashion industries that are in New York City. I live in central New Jersey so luckily a commute wont be to much of a problem. If anyone has any more information on the pre-college classes offered here please leave me comment or if someone from the school can contact me at I am looking for any information I can get because this is my dream college and I will do anything that looks good to admissions to get in.
    Thank You

  3. I am excited about attending the Summer Live in July. I am looking for housing for the 3 weeks that I will be in New York. If anyone knows of a good place for a 17 year old please let me know.

  4. Hi Haley,

    I am excited about attending the Summer Live in July too! I am a junior in HS and visited FIT over spring break. I am looking for housing and a room mate. My cousin and his wife live in NY, they are helping me look for housing. I can’t stay with them because they have cats, and I am allergic to cats. Maybe we could find something together.

  5. Hi! I am interesting in the Summer Live program at FIT and I was wondering about housing, and how that works. if anyone knows any places or sharing with roommates please let me know. For summer 2015.

  6. I am a shy person. I want to have a career as a fashion designer. I would just like to know what these classes are mainly about and how it helps you pursue your dreams. Since i was 6 i have wanted to go to this college. Thank you,
