Simpson University Reviews
Not only is Simpson in a beautiful location, it maintains high standards in academic excellence, offers a low student to teacher ratio so there's a personal experience, has a new president with great vision and a welcoming personality, is growing in its athletic programs, and has a state-of-the-art science building and highly ranked nursing program. I'm proud to be an alum of SU!
Simpson University is a small Christian school in Redding, California. I am a member of the women's basketball team and I love my teammates and the coaching staff. Simpson's faculty are genuinely, good-hearted people who want the best for their students. Small class sizes allow for personal connections and real relationships with peers and professors. I am very thankful for Simpson University and its Christian environment which allows me to be submerged in a culture that I can thrive in and connects me with people who have similar values. I pray this school continues to grow financially and increase in students as I know we are coming out of a major slump from previous years. Overall, Simpson University provides an incredible environment if you are looking for a small, close knit Christian school to pursue your educational and/or athletic goals.
Simpson University is a private school that truly cares about the well-being and education of each of their students. The professors there are committed to student success and invest time and energy into making sure that each student gets the classes they need on time and have all of the resources they may find useful to do well in class. In the Sciences and Music Department, as I have experienced, the professors are passionate, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable about their subject. If you are willing or interested in a faith focused school, I would highly recommend Simpson.
