Simpson University is a great university that's also a small college. The environment at this college is a very christian welcoming school. The school is located in Redding, California that is surrounded by wildlife, and fun outdoor activities for the weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Simpson University is great because there are small class sizes so the faculty really get to know you, everything is close by, and it is a very safe campus. I feel completely safe walking outside at night by myself. The best thing about this University is the World Serve Missions. If you come to this college you for sure need to join. It is a life changing experience. Little campus with a lot of love.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Simpson University is a place where students feel they belong and can form meaningful relationships with nearly every person on campus -- staff or student. The fact that as a student, there is an opportunity to develop personal relationships with all of one's professors is not something commonly seen around campuses today -- This is another perk of the school. Simpson's values and mission statement include, but are not limited to Community, Excellence, Accountability, Integrity, and Service. The previously listed traits held by each student on campus, including athletes, and staff. All of these components affect each student personally as it helps round each and everyone to hold all of these values and strive to be the best person they can be every day, all while becoming closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. Simpson University is a place committed to giving each student a lifetime of meaningful experiences, relationships, and shaping each student's mind and character as a whole.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When discussing Simpson with a group of current students, you may get a lot of mixed reviews. Some may tell you how much they love being a red hawk while others will just tell you to run away. The problem is, the school and the way you view it is heavily based on your outlook. If you have a positive attitude, you will find things you love. You will make connections and have tons of activities to join in on. You will also thrive in your classes, because honestly, they’re not that hard. But if you go into Simpson with a bad attitude then you’re setting yourself up for failure. This is a private Christian school, so obviously there are going to be rules and it’s not going to be a fun party school experience like you might expect. But you will meet amazing people and hear great stories. You will feel loved and cared for by staff and faculty and even have fun at their school functions. This school goes out of this way to make you feel like home, and they do a great job at doing it. However, just like many other campuses, there are issues. There are a couple things that students dislike (food options, financial aid, sports, etc.) Luckily, the staff at the college is always responsive and does it’s best to listen to students complaints and actually make a change about it. Simpson truly is a great school with a mission to serve God and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small but loving Christian education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy Simpson and it's small environment, however it is not for everyone. Major specific classes are usually only offered at one time which means if you would life to graduate on time, you don't have much wiggle room in your schedule. It is very expensive, but the financial aid office tries to help as much as possible. The professors are great at their job and you'll always learn. The only downside is the food. Lack of diversity in the cafeteria but there are lots of places nearby to eat. All in all it's a good school with good Christian students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Simpson University is an amazing school to study at. It is a fairly small school with class sizes not exceeding 50. The food is decent on most days and the coffee shop provides great service. What I enjoy most about Simpson is the community. There is an overwhelming sense of belonging among the students. It feels like home away from home.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person seeking excellence within a small, yet beautiful campus, possessing small classrooms, passionate professors, and a loving community should attend Simpson University. Simpson is fully accredited through WASC and CCCU, and therefore provides a degree equal to a public post-secondary education institution.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

When I convey to my friends the perks and benefits of Simpson University, I reveal my experiences with my professors, who have an authentic heart for their students. They do not make the courses easy by any means; however, it is their desire to work alongside their students to teach them how to graduate successfully from college in order to go into their future career as fully developed individuals.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I know that you have worked hard to get here. You have had some good times doing it too. You have made new friends and pushed yourself farther that you thought you could. So don't stop now. Remember your dream and take it for a ride because you never know where it will lead. Set up good study habits and a kick butt sleep schedule (trust me you will need it). But do not be afraid to have some fun. Do not get overwhelmed by the amounts of endless schoolwork and worry. Kick back and let go every once in a while. Also remember to smile. It has been proven that when people smile they seem more attractive, more confident, and way more friendly. If you smile, you will be sure to make friends. Have fun and don't let the fear of this new world come raining down on you. Keep your eyes on your dream and shoot for the stars.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish that they bookstore would have given us better options for book shopping. While they did offer both rentals and purchases, the prices of the books were over the top. Most of the students continued throuhout the school year to look for their textbooks online to help save moeny.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Simpson Unversity prides itself in being a campus of community. While most of the campus does indeed live as a community, their seems to be certain groups that segregate themselves from the rest of us. For a campus that pushes for unity, it sure does always look like it.
