Meet Allison Tremblay, a Nursing major from the class of 2015, who is also part of the Simmons College Tobacco Free Committee. We had the chance to ask Allison a few questions about Tobacco Free Simmons and what she's excited for this school year!
What did you do this summer?
I spent the summer working at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston as a Patient Care Assistant in the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Unit. I learned a lot and loved it! I spent my days off exercising and relaxing by the pool.
How did you get involved with the Tobacco Free Committee?
I became involved with the Tobacco Free Simmons Committee in Fall 2013 when Dean Judy Beal came into my nursing class asking for SNHS students to become student leaders and help her make Simmons become tobacco free. I emailed her after class that day and have been working closely with her ever since. I attended a statewide "Become Tobacco Free!" symposium at UMass Medical Center with Dean Beal in October, where we learned the steps to become a tobacco free campus. With the information gathered from this conference and the help of many members of the Simmons community, we were able to make Tobacco Free Simmons a reality.

Watch: Hear from #Sims17.

With the school year now officially underway we thought it would be great to meet and introduce some of the newest members of the Simmons community, our incoming class of 2017. We all know that starting a new chapter can be nerve racking and even a bit scary, but there is also a lot of optimism and hopefulness. We thought hearing from them would at least calm some fears and build excitement.

Woman on Campus, Sarah Galvez '14 got behind the camera to meet and talk to a few students around the residence and main campus. These students shared their reasons for attending Simmons, what most excites them about attending school in Boston and of course what they will miss about being home. It's not too surprising what these women already have in common.

Make sure to welcome these students if you see them around and help to foster their already budding Simmons pride. Also good luck first years with your first semester at Simmons!




Watch: Women from Cote D' Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Sudan participate in Simmons's "Changing the Face of Leadership" program.

Earlier this summer, Simmons hosted the "Women Changing the Face of Leadership Program", a program designed and funded by the Study of the U.S. Branch at the U.S Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and we introduced program participants. Twenty-five enthusiatic women brightened up the Simmons College campus, with their willingness and eagerness to change their lives and the lives of others.

The program included four weeks of classes at Simmons taught by faculty from the Simmons School of Management, the Department of Political Science and International Relations, the Department of History, and the Simmons School of Social Work, along with several educational tours. It also included a week visiting popular historic sites and tourist attractions in Atlanta, GA. and Washington DC. The 25 women participated in the Study of the U.S Institute on Women's Leadership closing conference, shared their experiences and networked with women from all over the Middle East, Asia and other African countries.

During the program, I was able to sit with a few of the women, who described some of their favorite and most inspiring parts of their experience, what they would love to take back to their home countries, and what they learned about leadership.

For the second year, Simmons is hosting "The Study of the U.S Institute on Women's Leadership" program, more affectionately called Women Changing the Face of Leadership (WCFL). This five-week program, sponsored by the U.S State Department, brings together 20 women from five African nations and five Simmons students, with the goal of strengthening global awareness and developing future leaders. The women from Africa are all undergraduate students from varying universities in Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Sudan.

The program, now in it's 4th week, has included volunteer projects with Boys and Girls Club, Women's Lunch Place, Project Projection and field trips to various local historic sites, such as the Massachusetts State House and the Women's Heritage Trail in downtown Boston. In addition to participating in thought-provoking classroom discussions and lessons with Simmons faculty, the participants have met powerful and inspirational women, such as State Representative for Needham Denise Garlick and Simmons alumnae Oby Ukadike, co-founder of The WAWA Project. The African students also got the opportunity to completely submerse themselves in American culture during a weekend-long home stay visit with Simmons community members.

The program will continue to foster and cultivate their leadership potentials with even more activities and explorations. The final week of the program includes travel to Atlanta and Washington DC where they will tour several other historic sights and present their plans for becoming future leaders. A few of these amazing women were kind enough to share with me their thoughts on leadership, as well as some of their highlights of the experience so far, view the slideshow to see what they had to say.
