The ratio between girls and guys at FIT can be overwhelming at times. In classes, it is easily recognized that there are more girls than guys, depending on the major. Either way, guy or girl, students should not get discouraged by this. If you're a girl, there are plenty of young, cute men (or women) in New York City that are looking for you, too. If you're a straight guy, there are plenty of girls at FIT from which to choose. If you're a gay man, take advantage of the gay culture within the Chelsea neighborhood that FIT resides.
A dating scene does not really exist at FIT. There are some guys and girls that date, but the majority of dating happens within the gay community. If you are a girl and can find a straight guy to date at FIT, that is a rare commodity, and you will often see awkward glances from your peers. If you come to FIT dating your high school sweetheart, then it's a perfect place to find your gay best friend.
