1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Simmons is an all-women's college. They say you will see guys on campus and be able to meet guys. They lied. The only guys girls will meet would be hookups at parties.

Guys & Girls: Simmons College is an all-female school. The only guys you'll see are the graduates and maybe some students from the surrounding colleges, such as Wentworth, Emmanuel, etc. The students aren't so bad. If you're in the nursing program then you don't really see much of other students outside of your program. The students are like any college students; they dress however they want and date whoever they want.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: This is an all-women's college. A lot of complaints I've heard is you're not likely to find your perfect mate just casually walking to the dining hall. This is where you'd really have to go out and make your own luck. If you're gay, be careful about dating in the social scene here. Classes are small, and news will travel.

Simmons women are extremely independent and focused, and the all-women environment creates a bond among students who are all experiencing college life together. And the brightness of students is highlighted by passion for their fields of study. Simmons is not about finding a husband or wife, which encourages students to focus more on their education than what to wear—students are not pressured into dressing to impress anyone but themselves. Everyone seems to have their own style and approach to their appearance as they begin crafting the rest of their college and adult identity. Although it is an all-women’s college, Simmons is not a nunnery, and Boston offers opportunities to meet all kinds of people.

Students looking for guys will have to focus their attention elsewhere. Many Simmons students find guys at other colleges in the area. Many girls are in long-term relationships, and some are even engaged to people at home. On weekends, there are many more guys on campus picking up a date. There are a couple of male graduate students on the Residence Campus in North Hall, but they quickly seem to become just another one of your classmates. The women on campus are respectful of one another, although arguments arise on the Residence Campus when shampoo disappears. And no, everyone on the campus does not explode with PMS at the same time. Student cliques are intense, with different groups enjoying different scenes. Majors and student activities groups often separate the community in both positive and negative ways.

Social Scene
The Residence Campus is quiet during the week, filled with students intent on their studies. However, once the weekend approaches, the voices of girls on the quad become much louder later into the night. Parties rarely occur on campus; students visit neighboring schools and bars and return home to the campus when done.
Hookups or Relationships?
Weekends at Simmons have been dubbed "Hotel Simmons," when boyfriends and male counterparts suddenly fill the dormitories.

Dress Code
Boston's metropolitan feel reflects in the fashion of the area and of Simmons. Students come to class in a variety of fashions, ranging from H&M to Louis Vuitton. The lack of men and long study nights influences student comfort in coming to class in pajamas. The unpredictability of the weather makes it difficult to dress in anything but layers. When it comes to dressing up for a night on the town, the dorm rooms turn to runways. News to the non-New Englander: don't be surprised to see flip-flops in the winter.
