Boston is a cosmopolitan city, with fascinating historical sites, outstanding cultural institutions, and a gamut of retail shops, restaurants, and nightclubs. It's also the ultimate college town. With more than 300,000 college students, there's a never-ending buzz of social activities and events throughout the year.

If you like to explore, you'll find that Simmons is ideally situated for tapping into the city's immense offerings. The campus is within walking distance of fifteen other colleges, and is located next door to two of Boston's finest art museums as well as the renowned Longwood medical and research district, which includes Harvard Medical School. Bus and subway transportation stops are just minutes away from the Simmons residence halls.

Bring a calendar when you come to Simmons. You're sure to have an active social life. There's always something going on. In addition to athletics, co-curricular activities, and more than 50 student organizations, Simmons traditions and events include ice cream socials, Friday teas, the Simmons Cup, May Day, a Mr. Simmons contest, and Culture Shock — a multicultural extravaganza that includes food, fashion, dance, and more.
