    I love living at Simpson. Most of the students are within four hours of their homes. Luckily, I am only 20 minutes away. I love this because I am close enough to home to see my friends, but I don't have to stay at school. There are normally enough things to do on campus between forum events, CAB activities, and sporting events. You just have to get out and do things.
