Everyone is so friendly! Full of advice from all of their own experiences.

Online classes, for the most part, run smoothly. Professors respond quickly to any questions and explain information thoroughly. I've had very few issues getting in touch with professors.

The curriculum is disappointing as I have mentioned before because I transferred into this school with an Associates Degree and only 21 credits transferred. The curriculum also is more than a 4 year program, incoming new freshman have to take at least 15 credits or so (around there) before they can actually begin the 4 year program. It is almost impossible to graduate from LIM in 4 years and I believe they do this on purpose. However, I have been taking no less than 18 credits a semester AND also taking summer courses this summer so I hope to graduate in 2.5/3 years here. Even by doing the maximum school work possible, they still make it difficult to graduate in 4 years or under. My academic experience has been graded a C because I have learned plenty of knowledge going here but I feel as though the workload they put on you (or you put on yourself so you aren't thousands of dollars in debt from graduating in 6 years) is more than I would've hoped for.

The flexibility at LIM college is about average. Not all of my credits transferred from my previous associates degree which was incredibly disappointing. However, I do understand that this is a fashion school and not a general college. Scheduling my classes has been about average as well. Some courses have been difficult to get into or organize my schedule so I can also work part time. Some classes are only offered on certain days that don't work in my current working situation, but I understand that is typical for any institution.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I received my Associates Degree at a State University prior to attending LIM College. Though I am very happy at LIM, I feel that the tuition is ridiculously priced. I understand that this college is a private institution so automatically it is more expensive, along with the fact that the campus is spread all throughout Manhattan. However, I still believe for all of the classes we are required to take, I sometimes feel it is not worth the 23,000 dollars I am paying every year. The tuition also went up this current year which is very hard to understand. I have taken a few courses in my first year that I honestly did see as a waste of time. However, the connections that LIM is able to help you with and networking is outstanding. I believe my money is going towards that moreso than the education, therefore I grade it as a D.

I've always taken online courses to maximize time for working part time so taking online courses isn't that difficult for me. The only problem I have came across is poor professors. It's always difficult to understand directions if they aren't written clearly. When this happens I always directly contact my professors through email and it is difficult when the professors aren't very helpful at this point! Overall, online classes help me learn how to manage my time correctly and motivate myself to understand the main concepts.

The majority of the campus computer labs use PCs. However, they are constantly working on incorporating Macs each year. There is wireless access in all school buildings! Overall the computers do work well and there is plenty for all students. However, depending n what is happening during the school year (i.e. final projects) the printers will run out of ink or paper quite quickly! And it costs $.25 per color page printed, but you begin each school year with $25 in credit.

I'm a Marketing major and the only class I've taken so far is the Marketing course. It was fairly easy because all of the "discussions" were based off of the created powerpoints for each chapter in the required textbook. The marketing teachers seem friendly especially the head of the Marketing program.

The professors vary. So far, I can only say I've had one great teacher for the year that I've attended LIM because he was the only one that taught me something I couldn't teach myself. The subjects are fairly simple, but I think the professors make it more complicated than it should be. Unless you're in the honors program, registration is aggravating. It's all done online, but SONIS usually goes down and a lot of people couldn't get the classes they needed because of the maximum number of people in a class (usually only 18-20).

All of the computers and printers on campus are always working. If not, they are fixed immediately. The computers, internet and printer in the dorms however are terrible, unreliable and useless.

LIM doesn't have sports. But every week you will get an e-mail of event happening that week. $8 Movie Tickets, Lectures, Event, Internships, Fashion Shows, etc.

Student Life is very active. Very diverse schools, we have student from all over the world. A lot of kids have money but I don't come from money so it doesn't matter. Political and religion topics arent discussed alot. We are extremely accepting of different sexuality.
College Sophomore 2013-03-19T20:28:08Z
My school is very good at the business of fashion. Teacher really care more about your well being than most college. Being in NY is great. You have opportunities at internships, field trips, lectures, and activity that help you. It is pricy, and food is alot cause you are in the city. Don't feel left out my commuting cause alot of students do it.

I think this section has room for improvement. A lot of the professors are still trying to figure out Blackboard themselves, so it makes it hard for students to come to them with questions about things that don't understand. Often times, there is confusion about due dates and when the portal closes. And of course, technology messes up, so sometimes there are misunderstandings.

Management is one of the majors that people don't really consider. However, LIM offers a lot of great courses for this major. We are required to take entrepreneurship classes, which is interesting. The workload is intense, but management is an intense field. Nothing is overbearing. It is all there to benefit the students.
College Sophomore 2013-03-10T18:20:17Z
Overall, I think the professors do a great job with their students. They ensure that their students are well-equipped for the next class and the workforce.

LIM College is not only an institution that specializes in producing well rounded business leaders, it allows us to feel like young entrepreneurs with hands on experiences every step of the way. With the city as our campus, we are surrounded by and exposed to NYC's most fashionable people and places. I love being involved in the college's student life activities, clubs and organizations.

I have a laptop but when I don't want to bring it I can always get on a computer. On occasion the system goes down
College Freshman 2012-12-14T03:28:23Z
Overall I like my professors. I took one class at my Community College before I came and it didn't compare, lim was better. My classes are interesting and most of my professors have had jobs in what they teach.
College Freshman 2012-12-14T03:24:17Z
Classes are good, not interested in online but know I can take them if I want to.
