The best thing about Simpson is the relationships you can have with the professors. The biggest class I was in this past semester had 35 students in it. Having small class sizes makes discussions easier, but, on the downside, professors know when you're missing. They care about you, and expect you to take their classes seriously.

A small school with a beautiful campus which is a great place to get individual attention. Teachers are cooperative and excited to help you understand the material. Getting to know people is easy since everyone is so friendly and the school is so small.» Read More
It appears to be full of activities when you visit, but in reality it is a suitcase campus, which leaves you with nothing to do on weekends. The small campus makes it easy to get anywhere in 5 minutes. The teachers know you on a first name basis and are willing to help and meet with you out of class.» Read More
Simpson College is lacking in the College Experience I was hoping for when I applied to be a student, there is nothing College about it. 75% of their students, including me, go home every weekend because there are no activities to do on the weekends and the food here is mediocre at it's best. The only good thing about Simpson is the campus is small, so walking to class isn't a big deal.» Read More
