Hey! Well, you messaged the right person because I am specializing in Buying and Planning! In fact, FIT is the only school where you can get certified in an industry-wide program called JDA for buying and planning.
Night life: everyone does their own thing. My friends and I go to late night dinners and go shopping because everything is open late on Fridays and Saturdays. It’s NYC so there is always something to do. The school even does a huge Breakfast for Dinner event at night during the year as well as movie nights every other week.
Every one here is friendly and helpful. We run one of the most fun Orientation weeks for new students to make sure you feel comfortable and get acquainted with NYC right away.
All I will say about the girl/boy ration is that the school is mostly female. We do, however, have a very diverse population of students in age, race, and whatnot, which is fantastic.
A lot of students seem to know or meet people from other schools in the Manhattan. We try our best to get involved with other schools. The Style Shop usually does a photoshoot with NYU, for example. My cousin goes to another university in Manhattan so I hang out with her a lot and have met some of her friends. I recently went to a social media conference where I met a ton of students from NYU and Fordham, which was nice.
If you want any more info about the school, I’d suggest checking out the school website, www.fitnyc.edu
