What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
When coming to college try not to room with someone you have known before! Its such a great experience to live with someone you don't know, experience something completely new!
PS. Sit in the front row... I know in high school it might have been dorky, but you really do learn better and professors see that you take their class seriously!
Ashley from Sterling, KS
1) Visit Campus! Sterling is a great place but it's not for everyone. I felt at home on my campus visit and it sold me on Sterling.
2) If you are from out of state be open to change and a different culture.
3) Understand that it's a Christian College, with that comes a lot of great things but also means that Sterling has different rules than other colleges. Chapels are required, and there are certain visitation hours that the opposite can be in your dorm. For a Christian College the visitation hours are not super strict, and 14 chapels a semester is not difficult to get at all.
4) Don't count Sterling out until you have received your total financial aid package. Scholarships, grants, and loans can make Sterling very affordable for certain people.
Matt from Orange County, CA
Realize that who you are surrounding yourself with will make all the difference in the world. The people are what makes the college experience so special. I believe Sterling College does it best by inviting the most quality people to come aboard and enjoy everything it has to offer. It has so much to offer! Ministries, sports teams, leadership, events, and so much more. I would seriously take a step to check out this college.
Kara from Lone Tree, CO
This school is very open. So don't be afraid to take risks and be open to other people. They will love and care for you and will be there through your lowest valleys and high mountains. Go in with a positive mindset and everything else with fall into place.
Yolanda from Anchorage, AK
Be prepared to be around Christian students, both the judgmental and accepting kind, but also be prepared for non-Christian students. Go into it with an open mind.
Stephany from Sterling, KS
It is an absolutely amazing school to attend and I would never go back and change my decision to be here.
Haley from Whittier, CA
Visit the Campus while school is in session. Come with questions on areas of interest to you. If you want to play sports tryout you'll probably make it.
