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 a great school if you are planning on being a music, education, or theater theater major. The professors truly care about you, but they will not seek you out. During a tour, the tour guides will try to convince you that Simpson is not a suit case college, but most of the students are from Des Moines or Ankeny so many go home on the weekends.

    Small campus and very quiet. I got a personal tour while classes were in session which was cool. Met with an admissions advisor who answered all of my questions.

    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.
