Fall Orientation

August 21 - 26, 2022: Fall Orientation – All New Students  (attendance is required)

Fall Orientation is a mandatory program which will prepare you for both academic and student life here at FIT and in New York City. Each day of orientation is full of programs, activities, and events designed to make your transition to FIT as seamless as possible. Attending college is an exciting chapter in your life and we are ecstatic that you have chosen to become part of the FIT community.
