    Simon's Rock is a bit like the island of misfit toys. Many of the students who come here left high school because they were more motivated and engaged than their peers, so a lot of people make very special connections with both students and faculty. However, it is college and with that comes a lot of stress and adjustment. Ultimately, it is up to you to make your experience at Simon's Rock enjoyable.
