WHAT I LIKED

The only part of Simmons University I have enjoyed so far are a few of my academic classes. I really enjoy learning about psychology.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls and food are not great. There also aren't very many actual clubs, only associations that are for specific people.

WHAT I LIKED

Simmons University offers a great educational program. All of the courses are very intensive and challenging, but very rewarding as well. As a psychology major, the professors in the department are incredibly kind, passionate, and well-versed about what they teach. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in studying psychology in Boston!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While I love Simmons, the amenities are far from perfect. The exterior of our residential campus is picturesque and covered in trees—absolutely stunning. However, the interior of the residential/dorm buildings is a bit of an issue. I appreciate that we have people come in to clean the buildings regularly and make the bathrooms spotless! However, it seems that everything is just falling apart in the buildings: flickering lights, no hot water, faulty fire alarms. The biggest issue I had was the food in the dining hall. The staff is absolutely AMAZING, they are so sweet; however, the food is not the best. I felt like I could barely eat while on campus, so I ended up ordering takeout majority of the time.

WHAT I LIKED

I like that I feel supported at Simmons as a woman that is interested in the medical field. I chose Simmons because I knew I would have more opportunities than at a typical co-ed school. The professors at Simmons are supportive and inclusive.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The academic campus is under construction right now which makes it hard to study in between classes, especially while we don't have a library. The communication skills of different offices at Simmons could also improve greatly.

WHAT I LIKED

I like how the classes are much smaller, therefore there is a greater opportunity to communicate with your professors and mentors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school is quite small, very hard to make connections with the outside world career-wise.
