Extracurricular Engagement


Graduating from a small-town Iowa high school boasting a class size of 32, Treye Teske ’24 says he “fell in love with the small community vibe” at Simpson. Having also visited some much larger universities in Iowa during his college search, he felt much more at home at Simpson.

“It’s one community here — it really is. It’s this idea that anyone can be part of anything, and everyone works together to get you as involved as you want to be.”

The former basketball player turned varsity volleyballer serves as Senior Class president and president of his SAE fraternity, while being actively engaged in many other student clubs and organizations.

“I have always given a 100 percent to everything I’ve been involved in at Simpson,” said Teske. “It’s helped me discover different aspects about myself and other people. Learning about leadership, team building, and working as a community is really big for me—especially as I prepare for a career in law enforcement.”

His recent internship with the Johnston Police Department is among the many Simpson experiences that have positioned him to realize his aspirations.

“How close we are to Des Moines and all the connections we have there has really helped me propel and get my foot in the door in many different areas. Being part of my fraternity has helped me to grow, too. I think Simpson does an amazing job preparing you for your future.”
