Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
