Reason for coming to Simpson: "I chose Simpson University because I love the small campus feel, and the environment around the school seems very mellow. I also love the way that the student-to-professor ratio isn't as big as other schools. I am also excited to start putting my life is God's hands again and believe in all things happen for a reason."
