    Simmons is located in Boston, MA and it is awesome! The residence campus is a short walk away from the academic campus. Also, there are so many other schools around that you can always find something to do and meet new people. Being in Boston is great because you never get bored and don't have to go to a party every night.

    Sometimes being at an all girls school can cause a little drama amongst friends, but once you find the right people you are home free.

    The school is located in the heart of Boston. It gives students a lot of awesome opportunities to learn and discover themselves. The school itself does not have much interesting activities thou. Most students here are serious in their academic performance. So don't expect you'll see a drinking party every weekend on campus. The school has a really strict alcohol rules. You don't have to worry you don't have anything to do on weekend when you roommate is out. There are a lot places to go, such as North End, BU, Harvard Square, etc., you sure will fine something to do. School works will keep you busy all the time so be ready for that

    As with most places, there are good and there are bad people. You have to pick and choose your friends, as not all the girls attending the school are friendly. But there's a wide variety of folks so you're guaranteed to find a social group, even if you're a wallflower. The location is ideal, and both campuses are within walking distance of public transportation, the Landmark Center, and the Museum of Fine Arts. The academic campus even neighbors the Isabella Gardener Museum. Anything you could possibly need is no more than a T rideor a walk away.

    Simmons was a great stater school as a freshman and I really go to know myself over time. Although there are some tough ties they help you get through it. Living in the city is a blast and there is stuff to do all the time. Overall a great experience.
