"A. B. ran our program, and he was a great advocate for Special Education. The program made it accessible to complete my masters degree while teaching full time. It was a great experience, and they made sure to keep the program up to date as the state changed their requirements, allowing me to graduate with my SEI endorsement."

"I love Simmons, it has top notch education! I love the girls, and the whole community. However the only downside is the tuition, and they do not give much grace. You pay for what you get, and I definitely feel it's worth it. I love the city there are so many things to do and to see! It's a great place to learn inside and outside of the class."

"Overall, Simmons afforded me opportunities that would have been difficult to access at larger universities. My professors and advisors went out of their way to accommodate my interests going so far as to offer me independent study credits in my sophomore year so that I could get ahead in order to study abroad during my junior year. When I had difficulty finding a senior internship while abroad, my professors made contact with the organizations on my behalf to arrange for interviews upon my return to the US. That being said, as a women's college, there is a heavy emphasis on gender. At times, it could feel stifling as I tend to have more conservative political beliefs that were not widely accepted by my peers in some courses. The lack of men also leads to certain viewpoints being underrepresented in seminar courses. The lack of men also leads to easier discussion on heavily gendered topics such as birth control and feminist activism so there are costs and benefits to the women's college environment. My professors pushed us to excel and the small courses meant that they knew every student in the classroom fairly well. The small size also meant that some courses were only offered every other year and course selections were limited. However, the close proximity of other colleges in the consortium allows for easy cross registration."

"Tell us about your college experience.The school was a pretty good fit for me. It's a small school with all female students so it was easier to develop a tightly knit community. I liked the location. Lot's of available internships nearby."
