Moore officially welcomed the undergraduate Class of 2015 at the BFA Convocation 2011 on August 25 in the Great Hall. The convocation speaker was Moore alumna Renee Reeser Zelnick ’89, fashion illustration, an illustrator and storyboard artist.

This year’s 148 incoming students hail from across the US and around the globe. They represent 20 different states, including Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

A number of students are coming from even farther away. Joining Moore’s community also are international students coming from as far away as British Columbia, South Korea and Israel. This year’s class includes 11 Visionary Woman Scholars, first-year students who demonstrate exceptional artistic and academic potential.

A college-wide picnic followed Convocation welcoming new and returning undergraduates and faculty for the 2011-2012 academic year.
