Academic advisors who actually give great advice
Academic advising isn’t just an occasional, check-the-box formality at Simon’s Rock.
It’s a serious, essential, ongoing relationship. You’ll meet with an advisor every
week to plan and talk about coursework, tackle academic challenges, celebrate achievements,
and explore intellectual directions—your advisor has the time and the commitment it
takes to really understand what’s going on in your life, in and out of the classroom.
Peer tutors who have been in your shoes
Our peer tutors have already taken the courses they tutor (earning a 3.3 or higher),
have been recommended by faculty, and are closely supervised. So they know the ins
and outs of particular courses, and even of particular professors.

Dedicated support staff who uphold our commitment to equal access
The Director of Accessibility and Academic Support works individually with students
with disabilities to assure that they have equal access to the full range of opportunities
at the College.
Librarians who pay special attention to your individual needs
Our librarians are notoriously helpful. Whether you need assistance finding your way
into a thorny research project, or you simply have to get your hands on a hard-to-find
book, our library staff will help make sure your paper or project is everything you
want it to be. No one-size-fits-all solutions here, we take pride in working with
you to find the resources and information that fit your specific needs. (And if you’re
just looking for a quiet place to study, we know how to stay out of your way, too!)
Special support staff who provide a warm welcome to International Students
Our commitment to international diversity means Simon’s Rock provides a full range
of support services to make sure that international students feel at home here, so
they can thrive—both personally and academically.
Academic Support Staff
Bottom line: no one at Simon's Rock flies under the radar. While you may have more
freedom here than at home or at boarding school, our entire staff works together to
make sure that you can’t get lost here. Your advisors are always in close communication
with your professors and Residence staff. We care about you as a person, and about
making every moment matter.
