Moore College of Art & Design Reviews
I love being able to get the opportunity to live in the city while going to school! The environment (being the city and on-campus areas) is beautiful, which makes it very inspiring for an artist. The campus isn't very heavily populated, which I for one enjoy because it means my classes are smaller and I for one tend to do better in smaller groups.
Moore is a great art college if you're looking for diversity and a smaller college community. A lot of the students who go here are quirky, nice, and generally accepting of others, although questionable drama is always bound to happen. Regardless, most of the professors do care about you as long as you're willing to level with them. You will have at least one whose class you hate, and at least 1-3 that you will absolutely love. If you are an illustration or fashion major, I would highly recommend this school. Otherwise, this school still has a great location, great connections, and great facilities. No matter what, you will feel salty leaving this school with a huge debt to pay off, but if you put it in the work you'll be able to learn a lot from the experience.
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.
