Boston Welcome Day

A Warm Welcome to New Students!

We are excited to extend an invitation to the Spring 2020 New Student Welcome Day, which will be held on the Boston campus on Thursday, January 9, 2020, from 8:30am-4:00pm in the Kotzen Room in Lefavour Hall. View the agenda in advance. This is a day for you to visit campus, meet faculty, get to know and network with SLIS students and student leaders, take tours, make new friends, and simply get acquainted with all the Boston campus has to offer. While you’re on campus, you can pick up your student ID (see instructions below), visit the college bookstore, and, if you are interested, sign up for a locker in the Palace Road Building. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be served. Feel free to stop by Simmons any time between 8:30am and 4:00pm on January 9.

Students who have deposited will receive an email about Welcome Day two to three weeks prior to the event. If you have any questions, please contact

How to Obtain your Simmons ID

Prior to visiting Simmons on Welcome Day, we encourage you to submit a photo online to be used for your Simmons ID (note: you will need to sign in with your Simmons username and password to submit your photo online). If you submit a photo before December 10, 2019 your ID card will be available to pick up on Welcome Day. If you are not able to submit a photo ahead of time, you can visit the Campus Card Office to have a student ID card created for you while you wait. The Campus Card Office is located in room P-107 on the first floor of the Palace Road Building.
