2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Never any parties here, some parties at Harvard/MIT/Northeastern. Legal nightlife is only fun if you're 21. Nothing much else to do at night, otherwise.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Simmons has no parties, and girls go off campus to party.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not a ton of racial diversity, but MAN is it diverse with the sexual orientation. We have an very large LGBTQIA community.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Plenty of girls go out to Harvard, MIT, Northeastern to party and do drugs, but I've never seen it here. It's easy to avoid.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I play for the soccer team. It was the perfect way to get used to campus early because we moved in early for pre-season. The team is like a family. The coach is amazing!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Simmons College is the best. The professors are top notch and really care about the students. I would definitely choose Simmons again!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety has two locations on campus, at the academic campus as well as on the resident campus. A Blue Light system is in place for safety on both campuses and the resident campus in enclosed with gates that all lock at 11pm except for 1 gate that is tap card access.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small but that is what I love. With a small size Professors really get the opportunity to get to know each student which really helps to foster a great community and learning environment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Going to clinical and interns, the instructors are often very pleased and welcoming to having a Simmons Student.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Rooms do tend to be small however the lottery system is an easy process and most everyone gets the facilities they request. The suites (2,3,4 or 5 person) are great!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Simmons is a D3 school. Common sports include women's basketball, field hockey, lacross, volleyball, crew, tennis, softball, and track and field. The Colleges of the Fenway are a group of 7 Colleges around the area (Simmons is a part of the COF) and intramural sports is very big through this organization and allows for students to be competitive with other schools that may not be in our varsity sports league.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Awesome School of Nursing and Health Sciences. I am fortunate to be in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program which is a 6 year accelerated program. All of the professors are dedicated to the success of their students.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Everyone is generally pretty safe, and those that aren't don't force it on you, nobody does.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no night life at school. there is some in boston but simmons itself is very quiet.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: NONE. THERE IS NO PARTY LIFE. lots of alternative club programs though

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We have a lot of race issues and a lot of religious issues on campus. Muslims and brown skinned people are not accepted as they should be.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some profs know what they are doing, some do not. The academics are not supreme quality but I don't think many of the students are either. myself included.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Unless you live in Peabody, it is great, we have gates surrounding and public safety does their job. If you live in Peabody, its crappy, you can't have friends in your dorm cause security won't let them. And since the gates close before the library, if you are walking home late, you have to walk through a long dark alleyway by yourself, and public safety gets pissy if you ask them for an escort.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors know all about it, others are completely clueless. Some freshman classes are kinda big, but the upperclassmen classes are much smaller and it is nice. You begin to have a relationship with your professors

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some programs are really successful, others are not. The Social Work program is really good and well formatted, and very popular with employers.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't get to live on campus because they ran out of room. In addition, my dorm is the worst out of all of them. There is also a large drug problem in my dorm and it is majority men that live there outside of my school.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Every year people try to bring greek life to campus, and every year it gets kick back and fails miserable.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Those that are involved in the varsity athletics love them, and they number many. However, you don't really attend sporting events unless you are involved or they are your close friend or roommate. Some of the facilities suck, like the track. And others are really nice like the spin studio. We only have one dance room, which is a problem for our dance team. It would be better to have more especially for programs.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The people and community are great but they liberal arts program is not so great.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is extremely safe. Public safety will walk you from res to academic and back and we get emails when anything involving our safety happens.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
