I love Simmons! Best choice I have made so far! Professors are very helpful and really care about your success. There's a real sense of community and the campus is very pretty. The location is awesome, there's always something to do!

My professors are so approachable and actually encourage it. They love when I have questions about class and homework and that I had the courage to ask. The teaching is very much interactive. The professors are involved in student organizations and events.
