Laura Finley Hasenbank, Freshman - "I’ve always known that I wanted to have a creative major in college and O’More has given me that and more. My amazing professors have met me where I struggle and pushed me in my strengths. The classroom is truly a supportive and collaborative environment, and each studio space is so inspiring. As a Freshman, I’ve already held an internship position and doors have opened to incredible opportunities with the help of my fashion professors. I feel like an important part of something so special here at O’More and creativity is cultivated daily in the Hitch building."
Marian Anderson, Senior - "The O'More College has stretched and grown me in so many ways. Throughout my four years here, I have learned how to creatively think, problem-solve, and foster community. The small class sizes have allowed me to cultivate strong relationships with professors and peers and have pushed me to grow as a designer. Every semester I have felt so supported by the tight-knit community of O'More, and I credit my professors and peers for helping me land dream fashion design internships. As a senior, I feel so grateful for my time here, and I'm excited to graduate, feeling empowered to take on the fashion industry."
