INDIANOLA — Caleb Wolff, whose parents are Troy and Heather Wolff, of Baxter, is studying abroad in London this semester through Simpson College in Indianola.

The faculty-led semester abroad program partners with the University of Roehampton, located in the southwest part of London. Students take some of their classes at the University while other classes are taught by the Simpson faculty member who accompanies them. This is the 20th anniversary of Simpson offering a semester-long study abroad program in London.

Simpson College is located in Indianola, Iowa, a short drive from Iowa’s capital city of Des Moines. Simpson College was founded in 1860 by members of the United Methodist Church.

Simpson has approximately 1,300 full time undergraduate students and approximately 400 part time students. Simpson also has campuses in West Des Moines and Ankeny serving primarily adult learners. Simpson offers 80 majors and minors, is a member of the NCAA Division III Iowa Athletic Conference, hosts eight Greek houses on campus and sponsors many extracurricular options for student involvement.
