The great people out weigh the judgmental ones making it a great place to go to school.

I have visited Simpson twice and I love it. It is very welcoming. I felt accepted, and cared for while walking around. The smallness of the campus really provides a sense of community and family feel, unlike the huge campuses where no one knows anyone.

Simpson University is a very inclusive school. The staff is inviting to all new entries and the students are glad to make new acquaintances. They have plenty of opportunities for students to enjoy their stay at the university, as well as learning to balance their personal lives with school work. The environment lets the students know that they are not alone in their endeavors.
