Leadership Meet and Greets

Leaders in the Simmons community have intimate sessions with Honors students to inspire, guide, and share their experiences on empowerment and leadership.

Mentoring Program

All first year Honors students are assigned a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Mentor. Mentors provide students with an outlook on dorm life, living in Boston, the Simmons community, classes, surviving freshman year, etc. They will also be able to answer any questions that students have during the summer before they get to Simmons.

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) mentoring program is a paid leadership opportunity for sophomores and juniors in the Honors Program. Students will build important communication and leadership skills while gaining visibility at Simmons and fostering a sense of community within the program. 

Honors Advisors

Honors students have dedicated academic advisors to help them chart their course through Simmons.

Honors Suite

All Honors students have access to the Honors Suite. The Honors Suite has a dedicated work space perfect for quiet study as well as a comfortable lounge for group meetings, socialization, and activities planning. Coffee and tea are available as well as office supplies and a lending library.


Honors students in the first year typically live with other Honors students in an Honors living and learning community. After the first year, Honors students may opt to remain with Honors students.

Professional Coaching

A select group of Honors students will be chosen to work one-on-one over the course of a semester with professional leadership coaches, building on individual capabilities and strengths in order to achieve success in the classroom, in the workplace, and beyond.
