Welcome from Simpson College President Jay Simmons

Welcome to Simpson College!  As the parent of a new student at Simpson, be assured that all of us are pleased to have you join the Simpson College community.  We look forward to working with you and with your student in the years ahead.

As a newcomer to Simpson myself, I have been impressed in a thousand different ways by the quality and caliber of this College. For example, regardless of your student’s course of study, he or she will begin working with an unusually dedicated and talented faculty.  The programs our faculty have built are designed to ensure that our students receive the highest level of preparation in their chosen course of study.  Simpson graduates are extremely well prepared for the workplace or graduate school by the time they receive their baccalaureate degrees.

The quality of our physical facilities is excellent.  Simpson has a longstanding commitment to maintaining superior academic, athletic, and residential spaces for the benefit of our students.  For example, your student will enjoy a completely renovated fitness center, which should open in time for the spring semester.  Similarly, the Kent Campus Center offers Simpson students one of the most attractive facilities in the region.

Finally, as untold numbers of our alumni will attest, Simpson College possesses an extraordinary sense of community. Your student will enjoy lifelong friendships, not only with fellow classmates, but with faculty and staff who celebrate the success of our students.  The mentoring relationships that develop between students and members of the faculty and staff represent a hallmark of the Simpson experience.

Again, on behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, welcome to Simpson College.  All of us look forward to working with you.
