"This school is HORRIBLE! Do NOT come here! I had SO many issues during my one and (thankfully) only semester there. If you want proper financial aid, you have to hassle them to give it to you, otherwise they just push loans. Also, if you submit a financial aid re-evalutation, you need to keep contacting them to make sure they ACTUALLY DO IT! I didn't do this and I didn't find out if they were going to give me enough money until the day before payments were due because they forgot about it. They also don't care for the dorms properly. The paint job is horrible for an art school and I didn't have a properly working shower for half the semester. They only fixed it because I pointed out my suitemate had a mold allergy and could DIE if they didn't fix it. The girls at this school are also incredibly nasty and radical. I got harassed for having a boyfriend and not being LGBT! If you're not LGBT, you're going to struggle to fit in. The school is just incredibly irresponsible. I'm still having issues with them even after I dropped out. For example, I never got my 1098-T form and I got an email that I wasn't the only one with this issue. Apparently some students were receiving other student's forms, WHICH CONTAIN SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION! Also, they charge way more than just tuition. On top of the $400 for the art kit, professors can make you spend up to $50 in additional supplies in foundation classes and all other classes have NO CAPS!!!! I could go on and on about why you want to avoid this college, but please just AVOID THIS SCHOOL!!"

"I wish I could go back and go somewhere else. Working in the industry now I see how much more other people know. It is really disheartening when things that are standard for them I never learned. I know the program has slightly changed since I left so it is possibly better now and going to an all women's college is something I am so glad I have and would not want to give up."

"Studio Art at the graduate level is a very small, new program, 6 years old. This is both a pro and a con as the faculty fine tune the program to meet our needs. The campus community is learning what to do with graduate students. Small class size, very individualized, open program allows for growth in any direction."

"Moore is a small school and coming from a larger school for undergrad I can definitely now appreciate a smaller class and getting the one on one attention that I need; especially in dealing with subject matters that are new to me. Moore is traditionally and all girls school at the undergraduate level, but is mixed at the graduate level. So being one of the only men in the school can be fun at times yet challenging at other times. Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Moore and look forward to more great experiences at this institution."
