Step singing is one of the oldest and dearest Simmons traditions. Held in both the spring and the fall, this event took place weekly, weather permitting, at the South Hall colonnade on campus. At this location the underclassman would gather at sunset and wait for the Seniors to come marching from the North Hall doorway. Once the Seniors had arrived and were assembled on the steps the entertainment would begin. The four classes would amuse each other with class songs and original compositions written by the song leaders. "We're just the girls from good old Simmons-C" was a particular favorite for the classes to sing.
In addition to traditional and school songs the classes would also have theme nights. One such event was a Victory night step singing in 1944. On this night popular war songs were sung, including "Victory Polka," "Over There," and "Air Corps Hymn."
