I was at Moore College of Art & Design over the summer of 2018 for a pre-college art program. My one month experience there was amazing! The people I met are still my current friends, and the staff and teachers are definitely qualified. They taught me how to construct my art portfolio for future art colleges, and how an artist never stops learning, even professionals. On Friday's we went to art museums and saw beautiful work by the masters. Saturday's we got to go on field trips to see more of Philadelphia, and I personally experienced the city life since I'm from Texas. There was always something new to see, and one never got bored. I would experience it all again if I could.

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 visited Moore College of Art and Design for their month-long SADI (Summer Art and Design Institute). It was a wonderful experience and all the staff, admissions people, and professors were very helpful. Even being a quieter person myself, I not only asked them questions but I also candidly talked with them regarding their own experiences in art. All the classrooms and dorms are in a few connected buildings, so you never have to go outside in order to change classes or go to your room. There is also only one way to get into the campus, and there is a guard by that door 24/7, so I felt very safe. Also, I appreciate the fact that all elevators and classroom doors were all locked by a keycard scanner, so that was an extra level of security.
The students I encountered were all very friendly. The "party scene" is nonexistent (at least in the program I was in), but I know a few of the girls hung out in each others rooms or hung out in the Penthouse.
