"Located in the beautiful and affordable Redding, California, Simpson University provided a wonderful place to discover both the great outdoors, and the path to my future vocation. Small class sizes meant that we had great access to caring professors who were able to invest a great deal of their time and energy into helping us learn and succeed both inside the classroom, and in our lives as individuals. I was shaped not only as an intellectual, but also as a person, and I know that without the investment of my professors in my life, I would never have discovered my calling as a Bible scholar, and would not have the amazing career I have today."

"Overall, it was a successful experiences with professors who career and class sizes that created a personal experience. The cost of tuition is very high with minimal scholarships. This is a small school and doesn't have a lot of extra curricular activities to be involved in. However, it is in a beautifully peaceful location."

"I loved going to Simpson University so much that I signed up to do the graduate program in teaching at there campus. The stuff and students are so supporting of one another and just makes you feel good knowing you have a ton of support. I would recommend this school to everyone, the education is amazing but the community is what makes it the best."

"The faculty are very knowledgeable in their fields and really put in the effort to help you learn the material, not just talk at you from the lecturn. The class sizes are smaller so there is more one on one attention."

"It provide a comprehensive graduate program, with accessibility and support, but doesn't provide substantial scholarships for that program for a financially compromised student. I am 53 years old with two dependent sons in college and minimal hours at my job. My human services field does not provide adequate wages to cover my cost of living and to make affordable payments toward mountainous school loan debt. I need serious help or a reference to legitimate resources for scholarship assistance."

"I think that Simpson University has the most incredible and knowledgeable professors; not only are they helpful and kind, but they really have experience in what they teach and they care about the students on a personal and professional level. I always felt that I was taken care of and there are a variety of courses and majors offered. Unlike other schools, I think that you can really feel the spirituality and care for faith at Simpson."

"Pros of my graduate program are the experienced educators on the faculty. The educators have real field experience and use it accordingly in their teaching. The cons of my graduate program is the lack of knowledge that the faculty have on music education."

"The credential program is relatively brief compared to other programs, but thorough. I feel that Simpson well prepares its credential candidates for the teaching profession as much as possible. They will help you find a Master Teacher for Student Teaching; professors are always willing to work with you and help you better yourself as a teacher; administration and faculty are available to their students; and the quality of the professors' teaching is both efficient and insightful."
