"When I came to Simpson, I never thought I'd be studying philosophy, but I soon found ethics to be one of my favorite areas of study. I really love the free-thinking atmosphere and how the study of ethics really engages critical thinking, which leads to countless new perspectives on all sorts of topics, even ones about which I thought I already knew. Overall, I am studying ethics and philosophy because I love the field and because it helps me become a well-rounded individual who truly thinks outside the box." -Matt Nichols
