Favorite Simpson Memory: My favorite Simpson memory is my graduation day. I walked across the stage 30-years after my father as he is a Simpson alum. My father had always spoke highly of his time at Simpson and I grew up hearing about all the campus activities, legends and traditions. I knew very quickly I wanted to make my own memories at Simpson and he was very happy I made the decision to continue his legacy. It was an incredible moment to walk across the stage and see my dad in the audience and eventually place my degree next to his. It is one of the greatest moments of my life and one I will never forget!

Favorite Simpson Tradition: Homecoming and Family Weekend is always a great time on campus! These are the days I enjoyed the most because my family would come down and I would have a chance to tell them all about my Simpson experience, the organizations I was involved in, the classes I was taking and have them meet my roommates and friends.

Simpson Insider Tip: GET INVOLVED! Simpson has over 75 clubs and organizations and 8 fraternities and sororities and we truly mean it when we say we have something for everyone! Getting involved in student organizations will help you in the long run and teach you how to be a community leader, make connections with people and truly understand how to be a positive force for change in your community.
