- Benefits of a Womans College
At Simmons we recognize that there are many stereotypes about single sex institutions—they're elitist, lack social opportunities, don't prepare students for the 'real world'. Yet students at Simmons will tell you that attending a women's college is an unrivaled educational experience, where emphasis is placed upon leadership, individuality, and mentor relationships. And yes, a lively social life does exist as well!
