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 Parents 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.

Parents Day offers many specially planned events and activities, including the Welcome Breakfast, campus tours, faculty presentations, a resource fair, and a special Fall Dance Showcase by the FIT Dance Company.

We hope you can join us and the many other families in building your FIT pride and strengthening your connection to the college and your student. We look forward to seeing you at Parents Day!
