Hue is the colleges magazine, published three times a year by the Communications and External Relations Office. Its purpose is to enhance FIT's image and communicate colleges vitality and excellence to alumni, industry, and other key audiences, and enhance FIT's image.

The magazine is sent to members of the Alumni Association, selected industry leaders, SUNY representatives, government officials, donors, FIT employees, and friends of the college.
