The classes and professors are the only good thing about Moore. The students here are terrible. It’s very cliquey and I have encountered several instances of bullying within the college. Everyone here is extremely anti-social/ depressed. The school makes very little effort in improving the mental health of the students and it shows! Many of the girls don’t leave their rooms/beds and the environment here can be hostile. Also, it’s hard to make friends if you have no interest in PC gaming/ Anime.

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.
