"I was sorry to read of some poor experiences detailed from a couple of years ago. I'm graduating in two terms and am thrilled with my Simmons experience so far. Perhaps program changes recently occurred? I do agree the placement officers could use some human services training and earnestly listen to students (better than mine did). I found placement the weakest link in the program. As well, placement is not related to professor duties. So far, all professors are highly credentialed and hold diverse and fascinating clinical backgrounds shared in the classroom. Sometimes the async work feels a little mundane-not a lot of dynamic visuals-yet the content is packed with relevant educational information. I also find the content timely, especially the social justice, cultural considerations, and systemic-level change considerations interwoven daily . The clinical professors are dynamite. Theoretical frameworks, interventions, and assessment and diagnosis content is wildly comprehensive. Personally, I highly recommend the program!"

"Simmons University provides an excellent education in the sciences for women looking to pursue this field. The classes within the program covered a variety of topics in both biology and chemistry. The professors were heavily involved and interested in their students. The organic chemistry courses at Simmons were tough, but the professors were helpful and fair. They were very invested in students understanding of the chemistry, and those courses were some of the most rewarding courses I took at Simmons. The biology professors were equally engaged with their students and enthusiastic about. the subjects they taught. The variety of courses I was able to take in the biology program was very fun, including: animal behavior, zoology, genetics, plant biology, animal physiology, and more. In addition to courses, Simmons provides opportunities for girls to get more involved in laboratory work, professors' research, and other extracurricular activities or internships within the sciences. The Simmons campus is very close to the residential campus, and all centrally located-- all classes are on the one academic campus. Simmons additionally is located conveniently in the Fenway area, where there is plenty of shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and transportation.The Simmons community overall is very welcoming and empowering. I would recommend this school to any woman."

"I loved being able to get a degree online. It allowed me still be able to work full time. In the field of social work being able to share a class with students from all over the US was enriching. I appreciated the bond that I had with my classmates. I didnt think I could have a bind with an online cohort, but Simmons made it easy with its structure. Classes were once a week online and we had to sign in and have video and audio. It allowed us to interact with one another and see each other on a weekly basis. I made a lot of life long friends. I also gained perspective from people in areas that differ from mine which created a broader scope for learning and understanding."
