Favorite Simpson Memory: One of my favorite memories is seeing one of the very first students I advised, walk across the stage at commencement and receive the Trustees award.

Favorite Simpson Tradition: During a home football game you may find your history professor running the chains. At Simpson, the entire campus community and sometimes their spouses, pitch in to make good things happen for students. I enjoy being a member of the Simpson Guild and helping out at the concession stands during athletic events to raise money for scholarships while my husband cooks burgers at the grill.

Simpson Insider’s Tip: Take some time early in the process to visit with me about how your credits will transfer. If we have your FAFSA information as well, you may be able to walk away from campus knowing how long and how much.

“To me, the best thing about Simpson College is the people. This is a devoted caring community and from the first day I walked on campus, I knew this was a good place.”
