Student Life

Object Type: Folder
In Folder: Photograph Collections


Activism—engaging in action or involvement as a means of achieving political, social, or economic goals—has remained an important facet of the Simmons experience throughout the College’s history. From the establishment of the Student Guild by the first class to attend Simmons, to campus involvement in the anti-war and civil rights movements of the 1960s, to advocating for equality and fairness for all members of the community, Simmons students have driven change in important ways. You can find out more about activism at Simmons University by visiting our Activism @ Simmons digital exhibit:

Since the founding of Simmons University, traditions have played a large role in the Simmons student experience. During the early years, Simmons traditions included events such as the Faculty-Student Baseball Game, the Freshman Frolic, Founder's Day, the Ghost Walk, the Freshman-Junior Wedding, May Day, and the Olde English Dinner. These traditions acted as a way for the small student body to come together as a community, building camaraderie within each class and providing opportunities for social engagement throughout the academic year. Please note that during many of these traditions, students dressed up in costumes, sometimes depicting cultural dress or reference that might be considered offensive. To accurately depict the history of traditions at Simmons, photographs containing offensive content are included within these photosets.
