Welcome from FBM Chair

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I want to welcome you to this academic year.  I hope that you will work hard and get involved in the many campus activities that are offered.  We are all here to help you with your education and your journey at FIT.  Make sure you get to know your faculty.  They are a wonderful resource for networking and career opportunities.
