Jeff works in Admissions at Simmons. He answered a few questions!

Where are you from? Where did you go to college?

I'm from Presque Isle, Maine. I went to University of Maine at Presque Isle and got my BS in elementary education and secondary education in 1995. 

What's your favorite thing about Simmons?

The location. Being in the heart of Boston in the Fenway neighborhood provides a unique living and learning environment for our students. I love coming to work here every day.

What's your favorite part of your job?

Working with the entire Simmons community to create great campus events that showcase the amazing opportunities available to students -- and helping them envision themselves as a student on our campus.

What should students look for when choosing a college?

A place where they will be challenged and supported. A place where they can grow and explore. A place that presents opportunities that are as unique and individualized as the personal and professional goals they have set for themselves.

If we visited your office, what would we see?

Pre-event preparations or post-event clean-up, pictures of my family and a jar of Peanut M&M's.

What's your favorite thing to do in Boston?

Visiting the Harbor Islands.

Favorite book? Favorite movie?  Favorite artist?

My favorite book is 1984, my favorite movie is Sense & Sensibility and my favorite artist is Casting Crowns.

What's your dream vacation?

A lounge chair by the lake at my family's cabin in Maine, 75 degrees and sunny -- and no bugs.
