Student Activities Events

An opportunity to engage

Throughout the year, the Student Activities Office plans co-curricular programs, fun events, and educational workshops. They vary from campus to campus depending on the organizations in the local community. It’s a great way for students to meet people from different majors.

Exclusive On-Campus Events:

DEBUT Runway Show

Students from all FIDM campuses are encouraged to attend, free of charge, the DEBUT Runway Show, which is held in Los Angeles each winter quarter. DEBUT showcases graduates' work from FIDM's Advanced Study Fashion Design and Theatre Costume Design programs, as well as the work of Interior Design, Fashion Design, and Textile Design students.

Media Lounge Screenings

Free screenings from the Library’s runway and designer documentary collections are held weekly in the Library Media Lounge. Special requests are welcome. The Lounge is also a great place for students to relax and watch television, or a title of their choice from a selection of over 6,000 titles.

Coinciding with National Library Week, the FIDM Library schedules guest speakers throughout the month of April to talk about new books, industry trends, and other important subjects relevant to the fashion and beauty industries. Events are free and open to all students. Lunch is provided.
