Moore College of Art & Design Reviews

Although the academics are stellar, the rest of the college experience that you'll see at Moore is far below average. The social scene is hostile and unfriendly, and girls who walk by each other don't even say hello or smile at one another. Everyone kind of views each other as competition. That being said, there's a certain kind of girl who goes here. Eccentric, odd, and they have a hard time being social. A lot of girls who come here are homeschooled or have a strange education background, so their social skills are not as good as they should be. Besides it being concerning for the college experience, you have to be good at communicating in the art world, and that's not something that you're taught here. It puts the girls at a serious disadvantage, because they focus so much on the studio aspect, and not so much on business or networking yourself.
Review Moore College of Art & Design
I think one of the great things about Moore is the size. It is very small, so therefore it is extremely close-knit. Everybody knows and helps each other. The professors are always ready to help you with whatever you need, and the studio spaces are very nice to use. The campus is small, but it is very homely and a wond Raul place to learn your craft. I have enjoyed my first year spent at Moore, and I look forward to the next two I am going to spend there.
As a transfer student at Moore College of Art and Design, the transition from my former community college was made very easy. They also accept transfer credits from many institutions which is very helpful. The community of students and faculty there is supportive and willing to help you with whatever you need. Moore also gives you free access to many of the museums in Philadelphia so that you have plenty of resources and inspiration.
