What advice would you give to students considering Simmons?

Think critically about what you want out of your college experience, but also keep an open mind. It can be difficult to know what a college is like until you’ve been on campus for a few months. Embrace the unexpected and allow yourself to explore all kinds of fields of studyorganizations, and groups of friends.
