Colleges of the Fenway provides opportunities for students

Simmons College is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway (COF), a collaboration between six academic institutions in Boston's Fenway neighborhood. The COF gives students the opportunity to engage and interact with other students, organizations, and classes at participating colleges.

If you are an undergraduate student at Simmons, Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Wentworth Institute of Technology, or Wheelock College, you can cross register and take up to two classes per semester at any of these six institutions at no extra tuition costs.

Students at these institutions also can sign out books from other college's libraries. There are numerous existing activities for COF students, including a Colleges of the Fenway jazz band, orchestra, dance project, theatre project, chorus, and intramural sports teams.

Aside from offering more than 40 undergraduate majors, numerous clubs and organizations, and an array of fulfilling experiences, as a member of the COF Simmons is committed to providing students with the largest array of academic and social experiences possible.

Simmons College President Helen Drinan talks about this commitment:

"The idea was to provide more options for students in the area than any of us as individual colleges could provide on a stand-alone basis."

The February 1 application deadline for traditional undergraduate students is fast approaching. Contact an admission counselor with any questions and learn more about being part of this reputable consortium.
