Family Day

Family Day at FIT (Fall 2022)

Fall 2022: Date to be announced soon! 

The FIT campus is a student's home away from home, and each year we invite family members and friends to make it theirs as part of Family Day. Share the FIT experience as you spend time connecting with your student, interacting with faculty and staff, and experiencing what makes being an FIT student so special.

In preparation for your visit to FIT check out the Museum at FIT virtual tours, take a virtual tour of the FIT campus, see what amazing alumni the HUE Magazine has interviewed, or simply check the Barnes and Noble at FIT website for your favorite FIT swag.

For the first time in three years, FIT will be hosting Family Day in person. We are so excited to have you back on campus! Below is a list of some of the events and activities that will be taking place on Family Day. This is not a comprehensive schedule; however, this will provide you with an idea of what will be happening on campus. Keep checking this page for a full and detailed schedule.
