Simpson Foundations

Simpson College realizes that making the transition from high school to college can present a challenge for students. For those looking for a bit more direction and support, Simpson Foundations can be a right choice designed for first-year students during their first semester at the college.

During the first semester, those participating in Simpson Foundations will be paired with a professional staff member who will serve as their mentor during the semester. Each student will have an individualized plan of progress will also participate in a variety of workshops and events designed to help them have a successful college experience.

As part of Simpson Foundations, students will be expected to participate in scheduled meetings with their mentor, attend workshops/events, complete academic progress forms, and work toward the achievement of their plan. By successfully completing the requirements, students will receive one credit toward graduation and have the opportunity to learn more about what it means to be a successful student at Simpson College.

Simpson College believes in doing all it can for students so they can reach their potential. Simpson Foundations helps students get started in the right direction by providing a holistic approach to the challenges a student might face as they begin a new chapter in their lives.

Enrollment in the program is limited each Fall semester and by invitation only. For more information, please contact Todd Little, director, Hawley Academic Resource & Advising Center (515-961-1524, todd.little@simpson.edu).
