Simmons .:L.J:. Community
Anyone else hear the guy having a screaming match with someone outside on the quad at 5:30 am? Anyone know what was up with that?

My name's Marti & I'm going to be starting at GSLIS on Wednesday (yikes!) in the dual history/archives program. I don't know why I never thought to look for a Simmons comm before, but yeah... Here it is.
Looking forward to life in Boston and whatnot!
i know this question is a little out there, but i was wondering if anyone could tell me a little more about north hall? i'm moving in on the 29th, but i have no idea what the rooms look like/are like. it would be amaaazing if someone had any photos, but descriptions would be great.

Hello again! I was wondering what areas of boston are the best to live in (and cheapest/closest). Where do you guys live? I want to get an apartment with my boyfriend and we're hoping to find a one bedroom or big studio for like 1300 or less. I don't want to have to travel for hours to get to school, but I also don't want to live next to a bunch of shopping plazas or something. I've been looking into brighton, allston, and jamaica plains mostly. What do you guys think?
I was just re-reading my simmons info form and I just noticed something about the MAT program for the first time. The full year teaching interns get a stipend? Wow. I mean, I could be getting excited for no reason, but could someone please tell me exactly what that includes? I'd be very grateful!
This is kind of a stupid question, but.. what are the approximate dimensions for dorms? I'm in Morse and wondering what kind of space I'll have. I know I can't bring everything (and I'm not planning to!) but a slight idea of how much space I'll have would be great. I'll be in a double, by the way.
I've got one other question. I know I've heard that you can get your bed lofted if it isn't already, but how do you actually get it done? Is there someone at Simmons you have to contact or something? And does anyone know if the beds in Morse are lofted, or does it depend on the room? Thanks :D
Hi! I'm a freshman this year and I'm planning on majoring in nursing. I'm from Connecticut, but I actually grew up in Wisconsin. Moving to the east coast was quite a culture shock!
Anyway, I've got a couple questions that I couldn't find under memories. Is there an EMS building on campus? (I'm a certified EMT in CT, but I'm hopefully switching my registration to MA before I move.) If there is one, is it mostly student run? Also, are members volunteer only or are they paid?
What are some dorm essentials to bring? (I'm in Morse Hall.) I know there's a list of what to bring on the Simmons website, but I was talking to my roommates about whether or not to rent a microfridge vs. buying a minifridge and microwave separately, etc. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I'm applying to Simmons for the dual master's program in teaching elementary and children's literature. I have a few questions ... in some of the other schools I looked at all the grad classes were at night. Is that true there too? Has anyone done the teaching practicum? It seems like a great opportunity. I bet you couldn't have a job, take classes, and do the practicum. It also seems like financial aid is better there too than some of the other schools I was looking into. What do you guys think? Do they actually still have grants and stuff for grad students?
Bianca Jagger: worst commencement speaker ever Y/N?
Sorry, I'm getting desperate :/ I need someone to take my place immediately!!!
Staying in Boston for the summer? Need a place to stay? I'm subletting my room in a huge 5 bedroom apartment for the summer- May, June, July and August! The location is Brookline, very close to Coolidge Corner and Washington Square. Safe neighborhood, close to a lot of shops and restaurants, and a 15-25 minute T ride away from BU. Also perfect for BC, Emmanuel, Newbury, and Simmons students! The rent is $700 and that includes heat and hot water. The electricity is split between 5 people and barely amounts to anything. Wireless internet is available, cable TV is free... The place is huge, the bedroom is big and is already furnished. Also has two bathrooms with a nicely sized kitchen. I'm leaving the 7th of May.. move in anytime you want after that; it could be day of or any other time in may. Stay til the last week of August!
Subletter can be male or female; roommates don't care. Roommates are relaxed and won't bother much.
My roommates are all college students, aged 19-21.
Interested? Have questions?
I'm flexible and we can work something out. If the price doesn't work out, we can negotiate something! Please contact me. I need to find a subletter soon, because I'm leaving in a week.
