Scholarships: I was very disappointed in my interaction with Financial Aid. Emails went unanswered, it was like pulling teeth to get answers to my questions and I was left to really fend for myself when it came to figuring out how to get my full package.

Campus Dining: The campus dining options are very good and consistent, however there is not much in the way of variety. By the end of the semester I am usually pretty bored with what I can purchase at school.

Academics: Being an MBA student at Simmons is definitely a bright spot on my resume. The program is well respected in the area and the alumni network is very strong. The Career Expo was much more aimed at undergrads, which was disappointing for the graduate students I talked to.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy Simmons College and the education is extremely valuable. As a graduate student most of my time that is spent on campus is spent studying and not socializing. I think that the food offerings and the campus buildings are modern and well maintained. The people that work at Simmons clearly love the school and what they do.

5 College Junior

Majors: There are only 18 schools in the country with a masters program in behavior analysis and Simmons is among the top. The program has been around for 20 years and provides and intense, but well rounded education. I feel confident in my abilities to find a good job in my field after I graduate.

Local Atmosphere: Simmons is located in a beautiful area of boston, however as a commuter I wish they had more on campus storage so I could leave campus and walk around freely without worrying about my school books and computer or having to lug them around boston with me.

Academics: Every class is small so you get a lot of individual attention if you need it and professors know everyone by name. Classes are not just lecture, participation is encouraged.

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.
