    All your fun is outside of the campus and in NYC! Oh, and no, you won't find any boys here so you might as well get outside or at least on an online dating website which everyone will joke about until a few months in. The best thing about FIT in regards to the social aspect is the sense of independence. You can sit in the cafeteria without people judging you for not being in your petty clique.

    Literally anything in New York City, location is the only aspect of this place I unequivocally love. Many people go clubbing (it's a dry campus, even though many students are drinking age or above, but there's obviously no shortage of alcohol in the surrounding city). Many museums are free, pay-what-you-can, or have student discounts, as do many local businesses and theaters. Washington Square and Central parks are a quick subway ride or pleasant walk down or uptown, respectively. Rocky Horror is 2 blocks from campus, and, if you feel like drowning in a sea of tourists is a good plan for the day, it's a 10-15 minute walk to Time's Square.

    You're in the heart of NYC, there's always something. Campus is close to Chelsea Market which is fun. TIP: Although it's close, stay away from Time Square at all costs!

    The school is located in the heart of NYC so you're steps away from tons of attractions. If you don't feel like walking getting around is easy since the 1 subway line is located right by campus. There are also tons of parks to go to on a nice day.

    Student life provides lots of free movie nights and free/cheap activities to do. You will also be living in NYC so there is always something fun to do.

    FIT is in a great location. There are several places to shop on 34th street, which is not far from the school at all. Also, the Empire State building is always great to see close by there. There are several great places to eat across the street and a couple of avenues down. Chelsea is a very residential area in Manhattan, so there are many activities such as yoga and kickboxing classes that are not located far from the school. If you wanted to walk or take the train about 2 stops, you could go to 42nd street, view all of the lights at night and see all of the fun, outrageous people. For a free event, central park is also a couple train stops away. There are so many things to do there. You could get lost with a friend, study, or just hang out. The subway system will become your best friend, you can get anywhere at anytime in this city.
