While there is no Greek life on campus, students joke that sometimes Simmons feels like a giant sorority. Years ago, there were rumors that a student was trying to start her own sorority, but her efforts were met with the general question “Why?” Simmons already possesses the closeness that a sorority might offer. Instead of sororities, student organizations seem to offer social niches. With more than 40 organizations, you are bound to find a group of girls with a common interest. Each dorm develops its own character, similar to other school’s sororities. At the end of each year, there is even a field day known as Simmons Cup, where each dorm competes against one another for bragging rights. At one time, each dorm was assigned a fraternity partner from Northeastern or Boston College, but this tradition has since dissolved. Instead, the close proximity of Simmons to Boston’s other colleges gives students access to Boston University and Northeastern fraternities.
A quick walk down Commonwealth Avenue on a weekend night is enough for a fraternity fix and has become almost an institution in the first-year student’s list of experiences. Many fraternity party promoters often pass out fliers on the Residence Campus. Simmons used to have a rich tradition of alumna meeting their spouses at MIT mixers, but such organized activity no longer comes from the administration. Simmons traditions include events, like formals and field days, to make sure students aren’t missing anything.
