Hue looks back as we move forward

This academic year marks FIT’s 70th anniversary. As institutions go, 70 is relatively young. But the college has come a long way from that tiny trade school back in 1944—100 students in borrowed space in the Central High School of Needle Trades—to the FIT of today, an internationally renowned college with a ten-building campus, nearly 10,000 students, 48 associate, bachelor’s, and master’s programs, and thousands of successful alumni who infuse the industry with energy and insight.

But some important principles remain the same. A commitment to innovation and excellence, as well as close ties to industry, are still defining qualities of FIT. The seeds that were planted in 1944 continue to bear fruit, and enable the college to shape its own future, taking exciting new directions while honoring our best traditions.

Hue is pleased to share this inspiring collection of milestones and achievements, not to mention pure nostalgia.

While FIT’s past has been very, very good, our best days are still to come.
