Diversity: Simmons prides itself on being diverse, but because it is such a small school, it is easy to see that it is not at all diverse.

Diversity: I think Simmons is doing a good job of trying to diversify the campus. I have seen a big increase in the number of minorities and different ethnic students on campus since I first started at Simmons.

Niche User

Diversity: I feel that the campus is very diverse in many ways. And I feel that Simmons tries to make everyone know about how diverse they are.

Niche User

Diversity: I don't think Simmons is at all diverse.

Niche User

Diversity: There are students of all different ethnicities at Simmons. I find the campus to be very diverse.

Niche User

Diversity: It is extremely diverse. While you're at Simmons, you get used to the diversity and don't realize it, but, for example, when I did my internship at CT Supreme Court, it was a big contrast for me. I realized how much I appreciate Simmons for the variety of people you meet.

Niche User

Diversity: International students, Boston-raised students, nationwide students-we have everything!

Niche User

Diversity: I think it depends on the person's definition of diversity. It could be better in some aspects. I would like to see more diversity as far as racial appearances; but again, it depends on the person's definition of diversity.

Diversity: Simmons, like all colleges and universities, has been historically closed to minority groups in the U.S. In other areas, such as geographical diversity, Simmons could also do better. Most students are from the New England area.

Niche User

Diversity: The campus is relatively diverse. We're not talking U.N. diverse, but you'll see and know people from lots of different backgrounds.

Niche User

Diversity: I'll give Simmons an `A' for effort.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: Unfortunately, there are not any guys, unless they are grad students, students from other schools, security officers, staff, or someone else that is not an undergrad.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: What men?! The men of Boston are fun, but there are none on campus.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: There are no guys, and it sucks! But the girls are great, and I love having women-only classes.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: Well, it's an all-girl school, except for the graduate programs. Mainly, the only guys you see on campus are employees or boyfriends. But there are many good-looking guys around Simmons at Wentworth and Northeastern! There is a good-size lesbian population on campus, too, so if you're into girls, then there are plenty of people for you to socialize with!

Guys & Girls: There are all ranges of girls here. Politically speaking, we are mostly Democrats or intense liberals, but there are Republicans if you know where to look.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: Guys? What guys? It's great being in Boston and at an all-girl's school. I feel that you get the great education from this women's college but can meet anyone and everyone from the surrounding colleges.

Guys & Girls: Well, since there are no men, I can't really say. As for the women, I think in general, they're pretty attractive.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: There are no guys, except for graduate students. The girls are primarily great, with a few snobs here and there, but it's like that anywhere. The community at Simmons is like nothing I've seen anywhere else. As soon as you make an effort to get involved at Simmons, you will have more friends than you know what to do with, and you will find support like you've never had before. I made wonderful friends at Simmons. And yes, we're all hot, and we'll tell you that to your face, too.

Guys & Girls: There are no guys on campus because Simmons is an all-girl school. Just like any other college, there are many types of girls on campus, not just one specific group.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: The girls are mostly nice. You'll meet people from everywhere-everyone's so different, and yet we all get along nicely! Any guys you see are most likely taken, though-they are the boyfriend or whatever else of someone on campus.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: Well, being an all-women's college, there aren't many guys on campus. Of course, there will be the occasional male or two in one of your classes, being part of the Colleges of the Fenways, and you will see the male graduate student in passing, but for the most part, to find guys, you'll need to wander off campus. Don't worry, Wentworth and MIT boys are always willing to hang out with Simmons girls. The girls here, for the most part, will talk to everyone. But of course, you will run into the drama that seems to be like high school that some girls just haven't grown out of yet.

Guys & Girls: I try not to pay attention since I have a boyfriend of my own, but you find a lot of good-looking ones that you can't keep your eyes off of. It also depends on where you go. MIT boys might seem a bit nerdy, but then you have guys from Northeastern, BU, and Boston College. You can't complain that you can't find one. Being an all-girl's school has its benefits when it comes to finding a guy. Girls on campus are friendly, great to hang out with to go shopping, to party with, or just to chill and have a girl's night in.

It is the mix of extracurriculars, academics, environment, and nurturing that leads Simmons women to enjoy their experience. The surprising amount of transfers into the College supports the claims of students. Students who have survived their first year, with all its ups and downs and acclimations, seem to be happy with their decision. Dix Scholars, the older undergraduates on campus, are welcomed just as much as students coming into school at the traditional age. Community is valued, and the support benefits all undergraduates. Close-knit relationships with faculty and instructors catapult students into their professions and evoke tears when it comes time to graduate and say good-bye.

Being in Boston provides professional opportunities for its students when it comes to picking internships and finding jobs after graduation. The urban environment fills a social gap that the absence of Greek life or men on campus could create. The winters pose a challenge to out-of-state students not used to the area’s rough and extremely cold Nor’easters. The weather is not the only environmental challenge. Though the all-women’s environment often takes getting used to, students are generally happy about their decision and excited by the chances of involvement and leadership that not being in a coeducational situation provides. Students at neighboring institutions often share horror stories about being just a number in their school’s eyes—this can’t be said about Simmons. This is not your typical college experience. Students come here to study and experiment with their identity, growing socially and academically. Simmons students don’t just come to school to party, but to become women.
