Emily Kerbstat, Precollege Saturday Live and Summer Live Student
FIT Freshman, Textile Surface Design
To me, FIT is… WONDERFUL!
I took a total of 6 courses during Saturday Live and Summer Live. The courses I took were mostly the textile design program offerings, however I also branched out and took other courses to sample different majors at FIT. My favorite class was the Textile Design for Portfolio class because it helped me put together a portfolio, which I feel I could have never been able to do on my own. In the class, I found it extremely helpful to be able to talk to an instructor who knew the ways in which a portfolio should be presented and what FIT would be looking for when I applied to the college. This class gave me the confidence I needed when showing my portfolio and it helped me find my strengths. I included many of my projects that I created during my precollege classes in my portfolio. I feel that I had a secret advantage from the other applicants because my related directly to my major.
I am extremely happy at FIT and thankful to Precollege Program for helping me find my place here at FIT.
