Academic Rigor
They provide you with a very stimulating curriculum. There is never a dull moment.
Dorm Life
The dorms are absolutely beautiful. They have a computer lab, arcade/ pool room and universal remote controls for the televisions.
Food and Dining
There are plenty of places to eat around the area. Chipotle and Subways are my personal favorites.
What to do for fun
If you enjoy shopping then the locations of the courses ore definitely great for you.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Some of the schools courses are located right off of 5th avenue, where you can enjoy the high end retail stores in the area.
Great for these types of students
The school os definitely great for students interested in getting as close to the fashion industry as they can while being in school.

They have a array of activities that you can partake in if you choose to do so.
Greek Life
I do not know of any Sororities that are currently in the school, since I have not attended the school full time as of yet.

Each the colleges locations have security and require passes to get into the school. They are as safe as can be.

Choosing to attend LIM College has been the best decision I have ever made. I love the tight-knit community and industry experience that LIM offers. Every one is a familiar face to me, and I like that!
Tips for prospective students
Prospective students should consider taking our Fashion Lab for High school students! It's a great way to see what being a student at LIM College is like.
Academic Rigor
Since my freshman year, I have always felt academically challenged at LIM. I feel that our Professors adjust their teaching style to meet the students needs.
Dorm Life
Our Residence Hall is located on the Upper East side of NYC, which is a nice change of pace from where our campus is located in Midtown. Students frequently coordinate events to participate in, leaving little time for a dull moment! Every room has a private bathroom, flat-screen TV, microwave and refrigerator which makes the moving process very convenient.
Food and Dining
There is no better place to eat out than NYC! There are many historical and unique places to grab a bite to accommodate any budget!

LIM is great, the internship/job opportunities are so amazing. I don't think there is another school out there that would allow me to gain so much knowledge and experience in the fashion industry. LIM has been my only choice of schools and I have no regrets. LIM has me on a fast track to my dream career.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you get involved with activities at the school. The experience is what you make it and if you don't put yourself out there you are not going to utilize life in the city.
Academic Rigor
The Professors here are amazing! Since the class sizes are small, you get very close with your teachers. The learning environment is filled with real life experiences and examples that you could never get from a text book.
Dorm Life
The dorms are great. Private bathrooms, a fridge, a microave and a flat screen TV with cable, what more could you ask for? How about kitchens on every other floor, a gym, a huge laundry room, an LIM exclusive computer lab and a game room. The dorms for LIM gives residential life a whole new meaning. It is a completely different experience than normal dorm rooms,
Food and Dining
The food in New York is the best. There are cafes, restaurants and food carts to die for. You can always find a new place to eat and in your price range. There is also multiple grocery stores around if you arent in the mood to go out. Plus, almost EVERYTHING delivers.
What to do for fun
There is so much to do in New York City its insane. Tons of amazing Museums, clubs, bars (for the over 21 crowd of course) there is Time Square, China Town, Central Park, The Bronx Zoo, so many things to do I couldnt possible list them all.
Clubs and Activities
There is a club or activity for everyones interest at LIM. There is SLAB which puts on LIM events, there is the dance team, Fashion Production club and so much more.
Campus Safety
There is 24/7 Security at the dorms and security at all times during open hours at all of our campus buildings. I have never felt anything but safe walking around the LIM campus, even at night.

LIM College is the perfect school for anyone who is interested in the business side of fashion. Students get hands on experience in the fashion industry while they are here and are constantly exposed to industry professionals. This school starts preparing you for life after college on your first day freshman year.
Academic Rigor
The academic workload is challenging but not extremely tough. We have a math center and writing center where tutoring is offered to students who need it.
Dorm Life
The dorms at LIM College are incredible! Every room comes with your own bathroom, TV, full size fridge and microwave! It almost feels like my own mini apartment!
Food and Dining
There is no dining hall at LIM College but there are so many great places around the city that offer a student discount when you show your id. They do offer and off campus meal plan but the residence hall has a full kitchen that all students who live there have access to.
What to do for fun
NYC is your campus! There is always something to do in the city and the school offers many clubs and activities as well.
Bang for the buck
This school is definitely worth it. While you are here you are constantly able to network with industry professionals and you are required to do 3 internships while you are here. This gives you hands on experience in the industry. All of the professors here either still currently work in the industry or have worked in the industry.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who is interested in the business of fashion!
Clubs and Activities
There are so many diverse clubs and activities here at LIM College. Getting involved is the key to having a great time at this school!
Greek Life
We do not have greek life at LIM College.
Campus Safety
I have never felt unsafe at the school. There is 24/7 security at the residence hall. There is also security at all times in our academic buildings while they are open.

I visited the campus a couple of weeks ago and it seems very modern. The school is small, which means that class sizes will be smaller as well. The school has three buildings in Manhattan within walking distance of each other, so you will need good walking shoes; however, you will need to take the subway to get between the dorm and the campus.
Academic Rigor
I don't know much about the academic rigor.
Dorm Life
You need to take the subway to get between the school and the dorm.
Food and Dining
There is dining at the school. You can purchase an off-campus meal plan or the dorm building has a communal kitchen where you can cook food.

LIM is such a lively school. I love the teachers and the fact that they don't just teach you inside the classrooms, but they teach you outside in the real world. LIM is a school that would help you achieve your dream jobs
Tips for prospective students
Get involved!
Academic Rigor
The teachers are great. The teachers at LIM are teachers that worked in the field before so they know what they're talking about.
Dorm Life
I don't plan on dorming, but I did see the dorms and they are amazing.
Food and Dining
Eating in the NYC is just perfect.
Bang for the buck
It is kind of expensive but your paying for a school that educates you and a school that gets you a job after you graduate
