The FIT Meditation Space is located on the seventh floor of the Dubinsky Student Center (Room A-746), and was created to provide a spiritually calm, warm, and supportive space for FIT students. It invites students from all backgrounds and cultures to meditate, pray, reflect, or simply to take time to be still. Personally, I love to relax in between classes and take time to reflect on my week and manifest positivity in my life.
