Hi ladies, my name is Abigail. I'm a sophomore at Moore. I am majoring in Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture, and a minor in Graphic Design. I'm from Louisville, Kentucky, so my first thought about living in Philadelphia by myself were intimidating. But, with the great young women of Moore, and the exciting new city around me, it soon became my second home. Moore's values of excellence, professionalism, leadership, spirit and respect are those of an honorable and historic legacy. Moore has already made me become a stronger leader in the arts. I participate in the Emerging Leader in the Arts program and am a Visionary Woman's Scholar. These advantages, among many more, help me to become connected to a network of women artists and designers that will serve me throughout my professional and personal life.
Besides classes and leadership meetings, I keep busy with my new internship at the Barnes Foundation, and cooking yummy homemade food in my new apartment in Center City. At Moore I love being truly immersed in the arts the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Barnes Foundation are close by, as well as the amazing Moore galleries like The Goldie Paley Gallery, the Levy Gallery, and the Student Run Gallery. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through the admissions office. If you are interested in seeing what I am currently working on, or reading more about what my experience at Moore is like, check out my art at www.abigailbrillart.tumblr.com
Hi, my name is Karla Coriat. I am a senior studying Graphic design. I am originally from Iquitos, Peru, but I have lived in Sarasota, Florida my whole life. I think the best decision I have ever made was to go to Moore, and to live in Philadelphia. I can truly say that it has made me see things from a totally different perspective. The exposure I have had as an artist and designer in Philadelphia, and at Moore, is remarkable. As soon as I visited Moore back in 2008 I knew this was where I wanted to be. I felt at home, and I could recognize the sense of community as soon as I stepped in. I really enjoy Moore for its amazing faculty, the one on one interaction and relationships we can build with our professors, and the community. I have met the most incredible friends at Moore, friends I will have forever. One of my favorite moments at Moore was when I had the honor of winning a Leadership Fellowship, which allowed me travel back to Peru and volunteer with a non-profit organization for The Belen Project. This experience forced me to grow into the woman I am today, challenged me in ways that I didn't expect, and led me into the path I want to lead in the future. I wouldn't have been able to experience this without Moore.
Hey there, ladies! My name’s Blakely, and I’m a Junior Illustration major with the intent to minor in Fine Arts at Moore. Going to the right college was always incredibly important to me, and Moore fit the bill. I love my classes, teachers, what we learn, and how we learn it! Innovation is what drew me here, and the comfortable, close community is what welcomed me and encouraged me to stay. There’s always a familiar face or name to greet in the hallway, as well as someone to offer a helping hand. I come from muggy and humid Boca Raton in Southern Florida (about an hour north of Miami) and coming from tropical suburbia, Philadelphia is like a dream to me. I believe that it’s the perfect city for any student or artist (or even both!). Plus, nothing beats having real seasons! At Moore, we’re given the tools to reach our goals, and it’s with these opportunities and experiences that I look forward to my future. Hope to see you soon!!
Howdy! My name is Lydia Knopp and I hail from Kansas City, Kansas. I am so grateful to be an Ambassador at Moore and promise to provide an honest, in-depth look at the unique student experience. I am currently a junior double majoring in Graphic Design and Curatorial Studies--enjoying every minute of it! Other than classwork, I’ve taken advantage of the other opportunities to get involved including an assortment of clubs, Student Government, and Student Leadership Board. As far as Philadelphia is concerned, having the city as my campus places stellar resources at my fingertips and constantly expands my ideas of art and what art can “do.” The City of Brotherly Love also entertains a variety of other interests including dance, music, culture, community, and food, that all help to complete a well-rounded college experience! I’m thankful for my parents, teachers, and the Admissions Office who’ve empowered me to become a Moore student. I am happy to share this experience and encouragement with anyone who will listen. Best of luck and I look forward to meeting you!
Hello everyone! My name is Tori Lattanzi and I am a fine arts junior with a double minor in business and textiles. I transferred to Moore from a county college in south jersey. I decided to switch to Moore because I wanted to go somewhere that would make me feel at home but also help me achieve the professional career in the arts that I dreamed to obtain. As a transfer student, I was able to become a business scholar in the arts, a scholarship program that helps transfer women to be more business savvy while beginning their careers. This program gave me confidence to apply for leadership positions like Residence Life staff and the Retention Committee. In addition, I was opened up to the fellowship opportunities given here and managed to receive the Frieda Ferenbacher leadership fellowship. This year I am happy to now be a part of the admissions team to help welcome perspective and new students. Moore has been able to give me everything I could ask for and more in my college experience. From the leadership opportunities to the sense of community, the city life to the classroom structure, transferring to Moore has been one of my best decisions.
Hello Ladies! My name is Abigail McGinnes and I am a senior at Moore! I am studying Interior Design with a minor in Business with the hopes of someday owning my very own design company. Coming from a small rural town in southern Pennsylvania, I was unsure of whether the city was right for me. Now, having been in Philadelphia for a few years, I can definitely say that all of the possibilities are endless and it is the perfect place for a young female art student. My time at Moore has been rewarding so far and I am looking forward to gaining even more knowledge and skills within this last year! All of the teachers have so much to share with us and I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. Through being involved in scholarship programs and leadership positions, I have gained a lot of real world experience and built confidence in myself that will help me succeed in whatever I choose to do in the future. Here at Moore, we are provided with all of the resources that we need to become the people we are meant to be.
Hey ladies! I’m Davinica and I’m a Junior Illustration major and Creative Writing minor. The moment I walked into Moore I knew this was my new home. I come from both the Berkshires (rural Massachusetts) and Rhode Island, so I was definitely not used to the city my first year. I’m starting to adjust and I’m in love with the different restaurants (so many places for good sushi) and museums just within a short walk from Moore. In my free time I love to go to the gym, do yoga at the PMA on Wednesdays, and play Apples to Apples with my friends. Center City Philadelphia is perfect for an art student who wants culture and easy access to the city without being too overwhelmed. I love that almost all of my teachers and I are on a first name basis and they even talk to me over the breaks. The close-knit community is one of the main things that drew me to Moore. I have always been focused on getting a career in the arts and I love the fact that Moore has pushed me further than I could even dream. During my sophomore year, and with some encouragement from teachers, I’ve decided I want to get my Masters in Architecture after I graduate.
I’m a Visionary Woman Scholar and part of the Emerging Leaders in the Arts program. Through the ELA program I have done an internship with the Center for Architecture and this year I will be doing a mentorship with architectural illustrator Kirk Fromm and another artist in my field. Moore has so many leadership opportunities that have made my experience here so much more meaningful. Currently, I’m an RA in Sartain Hall and one of my main goals is helping girls feel like they have a home away from home. Now in my second year of Residence Life, I realized that the family I’ve found with my team, the connections with RAs all over the country, and the visible improvement of my leadership skills have given me an experience I will always treasure.

Hi, my name is Lydia and I am a junior student at Moore. I am majoring in Fine Arts: 3D with a minor in Textile Design. During my freshman and sophomore years I learned many new skills and became very comfortable in my new home of Philadelphia. This year, I am thrilled to have my own studio on campus and work on my own ideas. Each of my teachers demonstrates intelligent and inspirational qualities, which make each class exciting and helps me to be a better student. My favorite class this semester is Surface in Art and Design in which I will be studying Shibori techniques. I am also happy to be taking Advanced Woodblock Printing and Junior Metals Studio. I am excited to see where my new classes will take me and what they will guide me towards as a future career. Moore makes me feel at home and I am always doing crazy new things in and out of the classroom. Out of the classroom, my friends and I love to go dancing and visit the neighboring universities. We enjoy the events on the Parkway such as College Day on the Parkway and Dîner en Blanc. This year will be full of wonderful and exhilarating opportunities at Moore College!
Hey ladies and parents! My name is Christine Tilton. I’m a Senior at Moore. I am majoring in Curatorial Studies with a minor in Photography & Digital Arts and Business. I'm so excited to work on my senior thesis in curatorial studies and finish off my time at Moore! Through my internship this past summer I got to work at the Print Center. I got a taste for what it would be like to work in a small non-profit photography and print gallery. The importance of the whole city as our campus was a huge driving force as to why I wanted to attend Moore. I am from Maine so the jump from small town woods to the big city was a big change. I have loved every step and continue to find new and exciting activities in the city. Philadelphia has so much to offer and Moore creates a perfect bridge connecting the student body with the city.
