The Student Government Association is responsible for choosing and supporting most student events at Simmons. Hot, fresh cooked meals are offered twice weekly, and snacks are available daily in the student lounge area, which also houses a pool table. Popular annual events at Simmons include a festive barbecue, an open mic dinner and the graduation banquet. Simmons students participate in a variety of community service activities ranging from social advocacy to feeding the hungry. Other events, such as this year’s Chili Cook-Off, have not yet become traditions. All students are encouraged to join the student government association and help shape future activities.
