Fiber Science & Apparel Design, (FSAD) features two unique student organizations that serve as resources for FSAD students:
The Cornell Fashion Collective was formed to give Cornell students with apparel interests a chance to express their creativity outside of the classroom by producing a fashion show every spring.
CFIN: Cornell Fashion Industry Network is a student run organization at Cornell University. CFIN works to bring members of the fashion industry to Cornell to discuss their career paths and industry experiences. Students are able to connect with these speakers to gain insight about entering the apparel world.
Additionally, students in FSAD are active members of many other Cornell extra curricular activities such as athletics, political groups, theater and the arts, and social organizations. Many FSAD students study abroad for one or two semesters in places such as London, Paris, Florence, Milan, Japan, and Hong Kong. Further, students often work during the summer or the winter break in small and large fashion-related firms in cities such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.
