I really think that a successful college is one that promotes and develops opportunities outside of the classroom and Simpson does a phenomenal job giving students every opportunity to be successful, however they define success. Everyone has a different picture of what a successful life will be, and Simpson really helped me find which pieces of the puzzle I needed to put together to work on my picture.

I started my education in Simpson's adult and continuing education program before my children were born. After receiving my associate’s degree at a community college, I chose to come back to Simpson to complete my bachelor's degree because of this outstanding program.
The education I am receiving at Simpson has helped me grow as an individual and will make me more valuable in the workforce. I could say a lot more because I have really enjoyed my Simpson experience. Each class I've taken has challenged me in a different way, and I've met some great people along the way - both students and instructors.
