Playing at Simpson gives you access to some of the best athletic facilities in the Iowa Conference and the Midwest.
Two seasons into his career at Simpson, Ryan Sander has returned the Storm to a top-tier force in the Iowa Conference.
New in 2011, Simpson replaced the track and turf inside Bill Buxton Stadium to provide student-athletes the opportunity to compete on the nation’s finest playing surfaces. Installed on the field was a FieldTurf Revolution playing surface, the first of its kind to appear in the Midwest. The track is a full-pour, 10-millimeter track from Beynon, the same surface found at the University of Iowa. Simpson’s main indoor facilities, the Carse Fitness Center and the Cowles Center, house a variety of different amenities for training, strength and conditioning and recreation. Simpson’s indoor facilities include a 5,000 square-foot weight room, a competition fieldhouse for basketball and volleyball, racquetball courts, a wrestling room, a 25-meter swimming pool, locker rooms and indoor batting cages. Other outdoor venues include Dick and Nancy Buxton Memorial Tennis Courts, McBride Baseball Field and the Simpson Softball Complex. Simpson’s golf teams practice and compete at the Indianola Country Club.
KENT CAMPUS CENTER
In the fall of 2010, Simpson’s board of trustees voted unanimously to construct a new $14 million student center. The Kent Campus Center will house a coffee shop, alternative eating options, space for concerts, banquets, meetings and additional office space for campus departments, including the Center for Vocation and Integrative Learning. Construction is set to begin in Summer 2011 with an expected completion date of Fall 2012.

BUILDING LEADERSHIP SKILLS NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Simpson is one of only two Division III schools in Iowa to participate in the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills program. Some of the highlights of Simpson’s program include: • Academic assistance through study tables for first-year students and tutors for individual subjects • Leadership, character and professional development through seminars and guest speakers • Community service opportunities with the Special Olympics and other agencies that provide programming for students with special needs • Mentoring program that provides support for first-year students by pairing them with an upper-class student SAAC The Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is one way for you to get involved in athletics beyond your sports team. As a SAAC member, you’ll be a part of a leadership group that provides a voice for studentathletes at the college and within the NCAA. SAAC members are focused on fostering positive images of athletes and often plan activities on campus. In the past, athletes on the committee have planned Spirit Day, National Student-Athlete Day and community service events.
