So far, my experience at Simpson University has been great. I have grown in my relationship with God and people more. I discovered my strengths and I am growing in my weaknesses. I love that class sizes are small because it creates a environment where significant relationships are built between faculty and students. Most professors are really passionate about doing their job well. Community is key at Simpson.

Simpson University is fantastic when it comes to community and being included in the campus life. However, the sports teams are lacking talent both in players and coaches and not every major program is excellent. If you want to be a Nurse come to Simpson. The Nursing professors are excellent and want you to learn. Same with the Bible/Seminary Major. On the other hand, the Political Science major lacks support and students. Overall, Simpson is a great Christian college that sends out excellent missionaries who spread the word of God, but as far as sports and some Majors, Simpson is lacking.
Simpson University is located in Northern California. The university offers a variety of 4 year degrees including in Psychology, Business, Nursing, etc. Additionally, it boasts of a year, accelerated program for returning adult students, called ASPIRE. The teachers are knowledgeable, and approachable. Moreover, tuition is remarkably affordable to any individual looking to further their academic success.
