Life at Moore
At Moore, we’re better together.
Join a culture of inclusion, warmth, support and inspiration. Buzzwords? Yes. Accurate about Moore? Absolutely. Taking the creative risks to push boundaries and excel requires respect, trust and support. You'll get those things every day from your peers, faculty and Moore's staff, which will help you carve out a path to career success and personal and artistic growth.
"Moore gave me something that other schools didn't: a sense of knowing. The people here know what they want, what they’re after, and I wanted to be in a place where we all want to become artists and designers and change our industries."
—CHRISTA FAAS '21, Graphic Design
We're not going to sugarcoat it: The coursework at Moore isn’t easy, but the ethos of acceptance and encouragement that permeates our beautiful urban campus and the lifelong friends you'll meet make the journey some of the best years ever.
Join a club—or join two! Enjoy the campus. Absorb life and culture in Philadelphia. At Moore, it's all here, waiting for you.
Let's Break It Down.
Academics are important but we know the college experience is also about your day-to-day life: where you'll hang out with your new friends, what restaurants you'll try, what activities and events you'll attend and, of course, where you'll be sleeping and doing your laundry! We guarantee you'll love everyday life at Moore.
Everything from your dorm room to where you can go to go to get your occasional Frappuccino fix. We'll tell you about how to get around campus and what it's like to live in our residence halls.
See how you'll get to shape your own experience outside of the classroom, and be surrounded by creative, like-minded people who want to make and do cool things—just like you.
Right outside our doors is the city of Philadelphia. Take advantage of it! Art and culture is everywhere, and you'll never have to go to the same restaurant twice—unless you want to, of course.
You'll spend a lot of your time at Moore in our beautiful, newly renovated Connelly Library! Enjoy the views of Aviator Park, access the Margaret Minik Writers Studio, and geek out over our massive collection of art and design books, periodicals and other resources.
