    I love Moore for what it has to offer educationally. The classrooms and teachers are all exactly what I wanted when I thought of my dream college. There is A LOT of breathing room in the building and I never felt crowded once while I was in the building. The only negative aspect to me was certain issues in my dorming situation with my suitemate that were not able to be resolved, but now that I am in my own apartment I am perfectly content!

    I love my fellow students at Moore and they really make me feel comfortable away from home. It is like a big family and it is nice to be constantly be surrounded by other artists who can learn from you and also teach you new things. I definitely do not regret going to an art school and I am grateful for all the wonderful experiences I have had at Moore. I am always enjoying the city location and the amazing opportunities available right outside Moore.

    I absolutely love my school. I love the area that I'm in also. Being in Philadelphia is a great location for school. There is so much to do and it's very easy to get around. I can definitely say that Philly is a very walkable city. Moore is located in a very nice area of the city where there isn't a lot of crime. We're located in the museum district so there's lots to see and do. Also we're in close vicinity to New York City and Washington DC so it is perfect for day trips into the nations capitol or to the big apple to get some fabric shopping done for class.
