Overall Experience: So far Simmons has been an amazing experience. I love the atmosphere, the support from professors and faculty, the beautiful campus and location (Boston is the best!!), and overall how accomodating the school is to everyone and their needs. I feel so connected with all of the girls and staff at my school and have never felt so welcome anywhere else. I could not imagine myself going anywhere else.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Job/internship prospects are great, if you really work with advisors and professors it is easy to find a quality internship or job in Boston, and to make connections. The alumni network is also very extensive and involved, and love finding Simmons recruits. The career center is also excellent and always willing to help students. Overall, Simmons isn't yet a well known school, however it has so many resources and people willing to help you if you put in the effort to take advantage of the opportunities available.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have awesome campus security and safety. Due to it being an all girls' college, Simmons dorms, residence quad, and bathrooms all feel much safer in general as many times there are no men in our buildings. Simmons is very much a dry campus so if you are looking to go out, it's easy to do so, but there is not much drugs or alcohol on campus. Campus security is great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is awesome because all Simmons students live on the same res campus, and our dining hall is on res campus! The rooms are average dorm size and have a big, beautiful window that let a lot of sunshine and light in, making the room feel bigger. The rooms and dorms are very clean and the halls and lounges are spacious and updated! The quad in the residence campus is beautiful and so fun to study and just hang with friends at. It's also super convenient having the dining hall and athletic facility right next to my dorm. I also feel extremely safe on campus, always!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at Simmons are not the most important to students as we are a Division III school, however a lot of students enjoy participating in various intramurals and team sports at Simmons and at other schools in the Colleges of the Fenway consortium as a way to meet friends and stay active. The athletic facilities at Simmons are awesome and open to everyone, including students from other Colleges of the Fenway. Overall, team perfomance is not always the best, but teams are always very happy and supportive of one another.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Immediately upon first meeting Simmons faculty and current students, I felt so welcomed and comfortable. Every staff member and professor truly wants all students to succeed and work hard to reach their full potential. Instead of being competitive with one another, all of the students treat each other as family. It is the most supportive and nurturing environment, open to anyone of any race, ethnicity, and sexuality. Everyone can be their true selves at Simmons. It is so easy to see why Simmons Alumni are so successful.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Strict policies on drugs and alcohol.

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.
