Simmons is an women's center college located in Boston! The community in Simmons is different compared to a co-ed higher learning institution! PLAN is alright, I thought the Simmons Explore part of PLAN was a waste of time, but the Boston Course is amazing. However some might have different views on the Boston Course. I really like the Boston Course because the class easily introduce me to the city with the few field trips we have. Which was very helpful for me, not being from Massachusetts.
There is a lot to do and participate in and the classes are not that overwhelming.
The students are very accepting for the most part! Republicans are a minority though so be watch out!
Not much of a party scene within the campus, but you can attend parties at other colleges if you know the right people. We also have Machine nearby with +18 nights on Fridays.
However, I feel that Simmons needs room for improvement which is why I give 4 stars.
The location of Simmons College couldn't be better! At first i was hesitant to go to a women's centered school, but after completing my first semester, i absolutely love the school and know it was the right choice for me. The classes aren't unbearably difficult, and I've made some really great friends. Biggest recommendation- tour the school, do an interview before applying, and go to office hours/tutoring once you're in college. Wonderful school- I am very happy
Campus housing is awesome because all Simmons students live on the same res campus, and our dining hall is on res campus! The rooms are average dorm size and have a big, beautiful window that let a lot of sunshine and light in, making the room feel bigger. The rooms and dorms are very clean and the halls and lounges are spacious and updated! The quad in the residence campus is beautiful and so fun to study and just hang with friends at. It's also super convenient having the dining hall and athletic facility right next to my dorm. I also feel extremely safe on campus, always!
