(Philadelphia, PA) Moore College of Art & Design is featured in a July 13 article in USATodayCollege, “3 Reasons Why a Women’s College Could be Perfect for You.”

In the article, student correspondent Lauren Ingeno highlights the importance and relevance of women’s colleges in the United States. Ingeno interviews Rebecca Collins, 21, a Moore fashion design student, who is quoted as saying she's the last person anyone expected to go to an all women’s college, but after three years at the first and only women’s arts school in the nation, couldn’t be happier.

“It just puts you in an environment where you’re a lot more focused on what you’re learning and your future career,” she said about all women colleges, adding that her decision to attend Moore was the fact that it combines art, design and business into its fashion program and is very career-oriented.

Moore College of Art & Design prides itself on preparing students for careers in art and design. Moore is the only independent art and design college to require internships in all majors and to support each student with an Internship Fellowship. Last year, Moore began awarding $1,000 Internship Fellowships to all juniors during the summer they are completing their internships. In February, the College announced five new endowed Penny Fox Internship Fellowships, providing $3,000 to each student.
