Simpson has made the transition from high school smooth and exciting. It's situated in such a beautiful area that provides numerous adventure opportunities. The classes are challenging and hands on. My professors have fostered and nurtured my love for Biology. I've developed some incredible relationships with people and I know that I have grown and improved as a person. Most importantly, I'm happy with the person I've become.
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.
