O'More College of Design says
O'More College of Design is an institution of higher education that believes in providing a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum while also training designers for meaningful professional careers that positively impact the world we live in.
Over the course of four years, our students are exposed to a unique academic experience - a quality art and design education that emphasizes individual attention, intensive hands-on experience, global awareness and service to humanity. The College promotes partnerships with the local, regional and international communities through exhibits, programs, continuing education, service projects and opportunities to travel. We prepare students to think critically and imaginatively, to become responsible citizens, and to develop a pattern of lifelong learning.

O'More College of Design is the realization of a vision - one that started with Mrs. Eloise Pitts O'More in 1970 - an institution of higher education that intellectually and expressively prepares students to become innovative designers with the capacity to create authentic beauty. We instill purposeful design, thereby helping students become successful professionals.
The objective is to inspire each student to become purpose driven: Constantly discovering, persistently cultivating, and perpetually sharing the gift of inventive thinking and purposeful design; someone who pushes the boundaries of creativity, with a respect for our history and time-tested tradition; someone who believes he or she can impact change through innovation and sets a strategic course, with the full confidence to succeed; and someone who finds meaning in the process of growth and spends a lifetime exploring the ultimate classroom - the world.
The College, now more than 40 years young, continues to add new spaces, new programs and new opportunities. It's the perfect time to become a part of our community - to experience O'More for yourself and make it your own.
