Favorite Simpson Memory: Gosh, it’s so hard to only pick one great Simpson memory! One that definitely stands out to me is from freshman year when my roommates and I bundled up during an ice & snow storm, bought some cheap sleds, and went for some wild rides down the hill behind the Simpson baseball complex. We watched movies all night to wake up the next morning to learn that classes had been cancelled for the first time in nearly eight years! Another amazing experience was watching our Simpson football team beat Central at Pella in 2008 – once again we were fighting the freezing temps!

Favorite Simpson Tradition: While it’s not a long-standing tradition like Campus Day, Yell Like Hell or Stand Around, one of my favorite things to do was to cheer on the Simpson women’s basketball team in Cowles Fieldhouse. I had many friends play and shine on that basketball court – it was always exciting when basketball season started!

Simpson Insider Tip: Always get involved, participate in the service activities and support your classmates and friends at the athletic events! You’ll be glad you did when it’s all said and done!
