Most Helpful Review for Simpson College

The best thing about Simpson is the relationships you can have with the professors. The biggest class I was in this past semester had 35 students in it. Having small class sizes makes discussions easier, but, on the downside, professors know when you're missing. They care about you, and expect you to take their classes seriously.

    Simpson College is an all-around great private school that allows for personal connections with professor, plenty of opportunities, and is a great learning environment. The benefits of a small college are so great, and my experience at Simpson has been nothing short of great.

    Simpson is great if you want a personal education at an affordable price. Scholarships are offered to practically everyone. The facullty is not the best of the best however they will know your name. A good school if you are looking for the cheapest price with a decent product.

    Simpson is a great place to get your college experience if you're looking for a school that will make you feel important rather than just another number. The faculty are all very friendly and understanding, and the students are the same way. If you're looking for a school that cares about you as an individual, choose Simpson.

    Simpson College is a small college that packs a lot of fun in a small area. The campus may be small but the academic rigor will keep you plenty types of worn out. The professors are more than willing to do anything for you because they want to see you succeed.

    The professors will definitely make you work for your grades. The professors have lots of office time where you can see them for just about anything you need. It is a small campus and not at all overwhelming.

    Simpson College is a great school to attend if you are going for a small community or a student-teacher connection. The classes range from 15-40 students (and there is always an open spot in class). Simpson provides their students with the education and help needed to make it to their future goals.

    Simpson College is one of the greatest colleges in the world! It has everything from friendly students, helpful teachers to a peaceful setting a small home town. Simpson is the place to be for all those students interested in making it real once they get out in whatever major they choose.

    Simpson is a small college in a small town. If you are from a big city or are aching for the big city life, then this may not be the college for you. However, I am personally from a big city and have found that a break in a small town like Indianola is nice. But for those days when you are eager to see a little more than what Indianola has to offer, Des Moines is only about 15 minutes away.

    Simpson is small which is both good and bad. You can have great relationships with your professors. However, many students go home during the weekends.
