Overall Experience: I love the career and internship workshops that they have. In terms of resources there are so many people available to help students in any domain. the librarians are incredible as well when it comes to research. The teachers are there to help outside of the classroom and additionally there is a great academic advising team, the tutoring center. Every month there are many activities and events that they do to help students relieve stress, cope with new changes, educate them on taking care of themselves etc. I love my school!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not had much experience with on campus safety as I am a graduate student. I feel safe on campus and I have not had any issues.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my MAT program. I feel as if they professors are knowledgeable and understanding that most students work full time. As a grad student, I don't have much insight into campus life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: if you feel safe when walking from academic to residence you can always contact Public safety and get escorted. THeres security in front of my dorm hall. The gates of Residence campus close at a certain time each night and I feel pretty safe walking around the city and campus.

Campus Housing: My hall is very close. We all support each other. There are a few activities going on throughout the semester set-up by the RA's. The dorms are not the biggest but we have adequate space. Its not far from academic campus and the cost during the Fall and Spring semester is around the same or below current prices in the neighborhood.

Athletics: My school is known for its crew team and field-hockey team. There's also swimming, crosscountry and softball I beleive. I know of quite a few students who play sports, but sports are not a big part of our campus life and school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have a small close knit community. My professors are extremely nice, helpful, dedicated about their classes and fair. My school is pretty open-minded and located in a great part of town with many job opportunities related to my major and field of study.

Health & Safety: Simmons is one of a few colleges with a police force that is all certified by the State of Massachusetts. There are security cameras in both the academic and residential campus, emergency telephones, and officers always on duty 24 hours a day. The gates on academic campus are locked between 11PM and 5AM in the morning with the exception of a police officer always sitting next to the one consistently unlocked gate. Boston's major hospitals are bordering the college which means the area surrounding Simmons is quite safe as well. I feel extremely comfortable on campus and think the college has done a spectacular job keeping its students safe.

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.
