4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a nice facility that was just completed last year that everyone can use, there a time blocks that aren't available when being used by teams, but they're really easy to access.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast food places that you can find all over the country.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There are certain things that they are more strict on than others, but they're not too outrageous.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties here are small, which I like. There are sometimes that they can get a little crazy, but it's not too bad.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It went pretty smoothly, we contacted the Financial Aid office while we were on Campus for a visit or figuring out registration and they took care of it for us and only requested that we send them the information that they needed. It's also really easy to get a financial aid voucher to use for books, all you have to do is call them and they send it over.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a ton of options, I usually just eat in Kent, but you can eat at Tyler's or Pfieffer. There is also Red Mango if you want a smoothie or fresh fruit. Each place has options, but after a while, just like anywhere else, you start to get bored of eating the same things everyday. The places we have in Kent can get a little pricey for a meal plan if you don't watch what you choose, and can take a while to get your food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Once you get to live in the apartments is when things get better! Living in the freshmen dorms is nice first year because you're around people your age and can just walk down the halls and find open doors, and you have communal bathrooms. I didn't live in the second year areas, but they're pretty much the same expect there are less people sharing a bathroom. After your first two years, or if you live wit upperclassmen and area a sophomore, you can live in the apartments and these are nice because they have everything you need, most have a dishwasher, but all of them come with furniture and a fridge.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: overall, the food is pretty good but it can get boring after a while

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: we have heat and air conditioning so that is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food at Simpson College is not bad, however there are very limited options. You have three options that always have the same things every day. It would be nice to have a few more options to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I think that campus housing is viewed as very important here at Simpson College. All students are actually required to live on campus unless they petition to live off campus. Here at Simpson, living campus is viewed so highly because they want students to socialize and get the full college experience.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are supported at our school by some people. However, I think we would be more successful if more people showed support.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: We have three different places to eat at. They all have different things to offer with a variety of items to pick from. I liked to spend my flex money on snack foods or hot chocolate.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Before my senior year in high school, I didn't know what it would take to get financial aid. My best tip is to apply early as well as to apply for many scholarships.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The workload seems just right and has awesome flexibility with classes that are available. I believe an internship is required in order to graduate, and help is offered to help find a place.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are the best! They are always available to help out with whatever problems arise. My professors have helped me find classes that are just right for me and offer support.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a great way to make lasting friends.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have many options to help keep everyone safe!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Much like most college housing options, most of the rooms resemble white brick jail cells. However, there is room enough to be comfortable in even the smallest of rooms. The apartments give students more options and space to live with but are understandably more expensive.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: These are students who will respond kindly when greeting, assuming you haven't already met the bunch that'll treat you like you grew up together before having spoken with you.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Not matter the outcome of the game, there is often much support and spirit for the team. Dance and cheer teams as well as pepband also participate at varsity football and baskteball.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: 'Parties' typically take place in fraternity a limited number of rooms within fraternity housing or in theme houses. Registered parties, which require a guest list and security are hosted by different organizations on an average of about once a month. CAB also hold campus dances or formals once a semester.

3 College Junior

Administration: Simpson is very strict about it's Academic Dishonesty Code. Recently policies have included allowing for co-ed living within housing units, provided you're not in a romantic relationship with your roommates.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Simpson is based in the smallish town of Indianola, making up about a 1/10th of the cities population. While there isn't much for self-entertainment beyond the restaurants and bars of the square, it is less than 30 minutes from all the hustle and bustle of Des Moines, where you can probably find just about anything you are looking for.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: There are three NPC sororities, 4 IFC fraternities and a developing latina sorority on campus. They work together to do service projects on campus and around the community, host events for campus and participate together in a mock-olympics/field day style Greek Week. Hazing is extremely frowned upon and to my knowledge, from being greek, nearly nonexistent on campus. The Greek community does face the burden of facing Hollywood's stereotypes about what it means to be Greek, but truthfully, the experience is you receive from Greek life on Simpson's campus is what you personally choose to make it for yourself. There is an everlasting bond of friendship and fraternity among Simpson's members.
