1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hullo styleforum,

    I'm in high school and have started thinking about college. I might visit some schools when I'm out east this summer. Anyway, I'm interested in majoring in philosophy or theology at one of the Ivies or Amherst/Williams/Swarthmore/etc. Anyhow, I'm somewhat interested in doing a minor in some sort of fashion design, just for the fun of it.

    Brown has a dual enrollment with RISD, which I'll look into. I know Columbia has joint-degree programs with NYC schools like Jewish Theological and Julliard, but do any such programs exist with FIT or Parsons? I was also wondering if there were any fashion courses at Yale Graduate School of Art that undergrads could audit. Any info on the programs I mentioned or even ones I didn't?

    While I'd prefer to go to school on the east coast, I'm open to getting a solid liberal arts education elsewhere in the country as well.

    Thanks much,
    wmmk

    I may be biased but shoot for RISD. You won't be sorry.

    A friend who's designing now went the Brown-RISD route. Seems to me to be the best way to go in terms of formal schooling, though there is much to be said for being in NYC/Columbia.

    FWIW, I had a friend who majored in Fashion design at Cornell while I was there. Don't know too much about the program other than that it exists though.
