Dix Scholars

Welcome to Simmons and congratulations on taking your education to the next level! We realize that the challenge of returning to school later in life requires particular support systems and skills development. The Office of the Dean for Student Life has created tailored support and advising for you, encouraging and supporting you as you work to attain your goals, while recognizing your need to balance student life, work, family, and numerous other obligations. We also work to foster a student support network for adult students so that current and new Dix Scholars can meet together, share experiences, support one another, and relax!

Ways to Connect

Meet up with other Dix Scholars to chat, study, or just kick back between classes. The Dix Scholars lounge, located on the lower level of the Main Campus Building (MCB C-005), is available to you at any time.

Connect with other Dix Scholars by through the Dix Scholars Association.
