3 College Senior

Academics: They have room for improvement, they offer criminal justice classes on and off campus, the better more interesting classes are off campus. This is a problem for student athletes, and students with out transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a variety of majors available at Simpson College. If you aren't one hundred percent sure if you want any of the majors, you can also create your own major. I love the campus because it is smaller, and it is easy to get to classes. All the professors I've had have been great because they care about the students. I also love all the study abroad options that are available especially with May Term.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I attend Simpson College, and I am an Elementary Education major. The professors in the program are wonderful. They are all there for you for your classes and on a personal level if needed. There is a elementary school right next to campus, so field experience is very easy to complete. I could go straight to my field experience after a class, and I didn't have to worry about driving or getting a ride. It is very easy to graduate in time, even if you are unsure of your major freshmen year.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm majoring in Psychology currently at Simpson College and i am fairly dissatisfied with my experience. The classes i would like to take are never available. However, when i do get to chat with the psychology professors i notice that they are very cool people.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Best professors ever in my major. Not so good in the general ed classes.
