Favorite Simpson Memory: I have so many great memories at Simpson; it’s difficult to choose just one! One experience that I will always remember is my trip to Ghana, Africa for a May Term class. During this trip, I was able to completely immerse myself in another culture, on another continent, for three whole weeks. It was a life-changing experience. I will always remember going on a safari with my friends and classmates, and seeing elephants and crocodiles in the wild. We also got to witness the birth of a baboon, only 15 feet away from our hotel room! I learned so much from this trip, and being able to share this experience with friends and professors from Simpson made it truly unforgettable.

Favorite Simpson Tradition: My favorite Simpson tradition is Yell Like Hell! Everyone on campus can feel the team spirit at that event, and it sets the tone for the rest of the Homecoming festivities.

Simpson Insider’s Tip: Take advantage of your time here! Your professors are tremendous resources, and could play a huge part in helping you with your career outside of Simpson. Also, you will meet people that you will be friends with for the rest of your life. Take advantage of seeing your best friends every day, because the time passes quickly.
