Now is the time


Are you still searching for your best college fit?

Simpson College has a place for you, along with this promise: We are committed to your success.

Here are some of the factors that set Simpson apart:

  • Small class sizes. Why is that important? You will get the one-on-one instruction and guidance that will help you thrive. Professors, not teaching instructors, will get to know you, your hopes and dreams and will show you how to achieve them.
  • We offer 82 undergraduate majors and minors. But here’s the best part: We will help you choose an area of study by giving you the opportunity to sample a variety of academic disciplines and other pursuits. You don’t have to major in music here to sing with the choir.
  • Our Engaged Citizenship Curriculum has gained national attention because it provides Simpson students with the skills graduate schools and employers are seeking. We will help you think critically, communicate effectively and solve problems creatively.
  • Our students go places. You can study abroad for a full semester or for a three-week May term.
  • Our Guaranteed Internship program offers qualified students the opportunity to gain real-world experience while on campus. We can do this because of our proximity to Des Moines and our relationship with leaders in the metropolitan community.
  • We compete.  Simpson athletes excel at the NCAA Division III level in the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. And we offer a host of intramural sports and recreation opportunities.
  • We serve others. It’s a Simpson College tradition. Our students are committed to making the world a better place, one person at a time.
  • We have fun! We want your Simpson Experience to be enjoyable and rewarding. You will make friends here that you will keep your entire life.

The search is over. You found the right place. Your success story starts here.

We hope you will visit the beautiful Simpson College campus and check us out.
