Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield was the site of FIT’s six 2023 undergraduate commencement ceremonies, held on May 24 and 25. The sun shone, mostly; the trees showed off their fresh spring colors, birds sang. On one morning, in the only bit of drama to mark an otherwise stellar day, a red-tailed hawk, off its game, failed to capture a passing pigeon. A variety of notable speakers shared their wisdom from the stage with the more than 3,700 graduates and their families and friends.
The live stream of School of Graduate Studies Commencement ceremony, held at FIT's Haft Theater.
The graduates received recognition in the following programs: Art Market Studies; Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management; Exhibition and Experience Design; Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice; Fashion Design; Global Fashion Management; Illustration
