Scholarships: I was very disappointed in my interaction with Financial Aid. Emails went unanswered, it was like pulling teeth to get answers to my questions and I was left to really fend for myself when it came to figuring out how to get my full package.

Campus Food: The campus dining options are very good and consistent, however there is not much in the way of variety. By the end of the semester I am usually pretty bored with what I can purchase at school.

Academics: Being an MBA student at Simmons is definitely a bright spot on my resume. The program is well respected in the area and the alumni network is very strong. The Career Expo was much more aimed at undergrads, which was disappointing for the graduate students I talked to.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy Simmons College and the education is extremely valuable. As a graduate student most of my time that is spent on campus is spent studying and not socializing. I think that the food offerings and the campus buildings are modern and well maintained. The people that work at Simmons clearly love the school and what they do.

5 College Junior

Majors: There are only 18 schools in the country with a masters program in behavior analysis and Simmons is among the top. The program has been around for 20 years and provides and intense, but well rounded education. I feel confident in my abilities to find a good job in my field after I graduate.

Local Area: Simmons is located in a beautiful area of boston, however as a commuter I wish they had more on campus storage so I could leave campus and walk around freely without worrying about my school books and computer or having to lug them around boston with me.

Academics: Every class is small so you get a lot of individual attention if you need it and professors know everyone by name. Classes are not just lecture, participation is encouraged.

Scholarships: This is only by personal experience. The Financial Aid office works very hard in rewarding everyone what they deserve. They are very accessible.

Health & Safety: Health & Safety at Simmons is top priority. We have great campus security. All buildings at certain points lock and the only way to get in is with your student ID. If its late out and you find yourself having to walk in the dark, just call security, and they will gladly escort you to your vehicle or across campus. Overall A+

Weather: For me I came to Simmons after going to school in NH therefore I find the weather to be delightful. Summers are hot, and winters are gross. Don't expect the school to close though unless its a big storm. Overall though the weather is manageable and all buildings are fairly close together. Though the walk to the dorms is a little longer.

Athletics: I don't engage in the sports life at Simmons at all, and don't hear much about it. Since I'm a graduate student I am separate from that whole scene, but I know that a lot of undergrads come to Simmons to participate in sports. From what I know there isn't a lot of exciting teams.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love being a Social Work student. The professors are extremely knowledgable and passionate about what they're teaching. The workload is manageable but also challenging and it feels like I am really being challenged to learn and grow as a person instead of just packing in knowledge. We have great conversations and the readings are things I actually want to do for homework, so it does not feel like a chore.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Simmons is right near a lot of great bars in Fenway, so there is a lot to do. There are a few really great places a 10 minute walk from school, and the school itself is located really close to the T. It's also right next to the two best art museums in Boston. Im not sure if the nightlife would be as good for undergrads, but there is a lot of arts and culture stuff to do around the area.

Academics: Simmons professors are all very qualified. They work in their fields and are highly educated. They put a lot of time into their lectures and provide the students with the materials needed to be successful. The nursing program is fantastic and I cannot wait to begin clinical.

5 College Junior

Academics: Simmons is a huge nursing school. Most of the students at Simmons are enrolled in nursing. It has great clinical affiliations and the staff within the nursing program are excellent. They not only share great information, but also experience from their own time working as a nurse. The courses and workload are very challenging, but the students and faculty help each other to succeed.

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Simmons College is not big. Nobody really drinks on campus and if they do it is in their rooms. I have never been peer pressured, nor have I witnessed it. I have only seen one incident where people were caught drinking and the policy was greatly enforced by the RAs, public safety and administration.

Students Often Come From

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.
