Moore is rather small but comfortable for people who enjoy familiarity. There are plenty of museums surrounding the school which is awesome if you want to draw something funky. You can go to the Academy of Natural sciences and Franklin institute for free and there are parks, fountains, and the central library that you can go to relax. There are also restrurants and fast-food places you can go to and if you don't feel like going the curly fries and parmesian chicken they have in the cafitiera is pretty good. There are plenty of work places within the school and a commuter hotel for five bucks. Always keep an eye out for events and talks. Especially the talks, the people they put up tend to blow your mind.

The majors are pretty straightforward and helpful to someone who is indecisive. Art education is included as well, so it's nice for wannabe teachers who don't actually want to fall into one category.

Guys & Girls:
The girls are generally pretty helpful. You'll find the quiet students who keep to themselves, and occasionally you'll run into the girl who loves to chat and help everyone (that's me!) It's a women's college, so there are no guys.

I receive a good amount of financial aid, but not so many scholarships. However, the scholarships that I have received have been very helpful.

Moore finds the perfect internship for each woman attending. Though the school is expensive, its worth it. You have to be good with keeping time and being diligent with your work. I have 3 three internships now and i couldnt have gotten them with out my school. Im a bloggers assistant, and junior stylist, and a pr manager for a start up studio. Oh and did i mention im only a freshman?

One thing about Moore is that it keeps your future in mind. Each class is designed to hone on your skills and bring them to the next level. Im not very math savvy but thanks to Moore, I don't need to be. Foundation year was tough for me but only because Im so excited to get into my major! Moore has taught me skills that Im using now in my internships and jobs. Moore is preparing me for the real world.

I am a fine arts major and I love the program here at Moore. We are challenged and have the ability to explore our own art. We are encouraged to attend artist talks and explore galleries in the city. The professors all work in the field of art and have years of experience in the art world. They are all relate-able and create a wonderful network for students to begin to get their art out in the world. The sequences of classes are very beneficial and help prepare you for future years.

A lot of students commute, but the buses are usually late, and the company that runs around the school has apparently recently increased the cost. I am glad I do not have to commute.

It is very easy to enroll in a major, as long as you do it quickly enough. Even then, if classes fill up too quickly, the academic adviser is very eager to help, and very prompt.

What I loved about my school was that it did have it's guidelines, but it also allowed us to think for ourselves and share our thoughts with others. The teachers are great, you get to know them personally since the classes aren't huge, so you develop a strong bond with your professors. The thing they are most strict about is due dates, assignments, and time management. Being in an art school requires you to finish tasks by certain date so that they can later be reviews in crits, by your teachers and peers.

I loved going out to eat in Philadelphia. There are many great restaurants and small owned business that are great! The food is always delicious, I ended up creating my own list of places that I would visit often. I also love eating out in Philly in the spring/summer because a lot of places start setting up tables outside and it is just beautiful. Philly is not a crowded city, but there are always people walking around, it's a great environment for eating out on a sunny day.

I love Philadelphia, it is a great city that offers plenty of culture, and love for the arts. Living in center City was a great experience, met great people, and got to explore a city that has so much to offer. There is always something to do in Philly; wether it is first fridays, shopping, going out to eat, ice skating, walking in the park, going to the museum, going to south street or simply making a quick trip to the art supply store. School itself always kept me busy but whenever I had a chance to do something, it was always easy to come up with places to go and things to do. I also love the city at night, great skyline, bright lights, and there is always people outside.

Along with dozens of restaurants, there are food carts all around the campus. So its very possible to find something you're craving outside of the cafeteria.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T07:23:49Z
Everything is really centered around the one building so you never have to go far to get anywhere. People are always friendly and want to say hi to you when you walk by. There are also a lot of programs to join and participate in. They do a good job of getting students to really want to go to our school.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T07:21:48Z
You really can't be cold blooded, but you have to expect that coming to Philly. It snows and it rains a lot more than I was used to, but I can count on classes being cancelled if the buses don't run, so I know I can get to school if I need to or not.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T07:19:04Z
Being in the center of a city is such a thrilling thing. There are so many experiences to discover and a lot of people to just observe. Being right near the Franklin Institute and the gallery is just a bonus. The studios are huge and the 24hour access every other day really helps when finishing up work.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T07:16:48Z
There is never a time when there are huge numbers of students in the labs and each lab has enough computers for everyone. That is one benefit of a small college. It is also pretty neat to be a Mac school. Can't beat that.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T07:13:38Z
Finding an apartment is easy enough, the school even helps with people looking for roommates, but living in the city is expensive. It always will be, and of course safety is sometimes questionable, but the school does what it can to prepare its students.

Moore College and Art of Design offers a variety of majors that suits anyone. I am currenly an interior design major and considering minoring in Buisness. Moore allows you the freedom to be flexible wit your schedule because ultimately it's the student's choice to do whatever they please. I absolutely love my major becasue I am so deeply passionate about this. I can honestly see myself being interior designer once school is over. Moore guides and helps along the way in making sure you are the best you can be. They provide you the professionalism you need in the buisness world while also challenging to think outside the box and become an creative thinker

The way I get to and from Moore is by the way of public transportation. I take what we Philadelphian's call the public transportation system. I catch a bus and a train to get to and from Moore. I'm in the process of getting my licence so transportation for me would only be used from a car. However, I'm pretty much satisfied with public transportation. It's cost effective and the buses and trains run pretty frequently.

The food here is very good. Unlike most colleges Moore College of Art and Design provides students and faculty with healthy and enjoyable meals. I personally enjoy their special theme days where they base their dishes off of cultural experience. It's very cool and unique and sets them apart from any other intutition. I don't live on campus so I dont regularly eat in Moore's cafe but when I do, the food is exceptinonal. However, when I begin venture out and try the restaurants around Moore, they seem to have more of a fast food taste. Everything is cooked inn grease which makes the food unhealthy to eat and unappetizing.

I dont live on campus so I wouldnt be able to accurately answer this question.

I don't see a lot of drug use at school, but I'm sure there's students who do drink and such. It's common in schools

Health & Safety:
Security guards the entrance and entry is only permitted with an ID. the only criticism i have is that with entry to one floor of the dorms a guest is free to roam about the residency with minimal security.

While the majority of students are white i believe that there's a good balance of other races as well. Politically nearly everyone is a democrat (come on its philadelphia). As far as religion goes ive met a few religious christians and the school has a Jewish Artist's club. I feel like the majority of people that go to Moore have alot of money but at the same time there are many people here on scholarship that come from middle class or lower backgrounds.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
