SIMPSON REVIEW

I love Simpson's sense of community. They also offered me great financial aid. The psychology program has wonderful professors and will set me up to attend graduate school. It is also a Christian school which is important to me.


Course Curriculum - 

Simpson's course curriculum has good information. Sometimes I feel that the level isn't high enough for a university setting. Otherwise, I love my classes and am happy to be pursuing a degree in Psychology.
