Sterling College - Kansas Reviews

I really enjoy the atmosphere of the college. Everyone is so kind, helpful, selfless, and loving. The college is the foundation of the community where everyone is willing to come together for prayer, sports, and family gatherings. The professors are willing to give some tutoring hours for students. Tutoring is free and the library has a writing center where writing assignments are peer-edited. Plus, the professors are willing to get to know and understand their students. The college truly cares about the well-being of their students and staff. There are chapel services provided every Wednesday and Sunday, prayer services very on dates, and many spiritual guidance opportunities available. If anyone is looking for a spiritual, quiet, small town, and caring undergrad college, Sterling College is the college for you.
Review Your College
In reality, there were not many pros to this college experience as I had hoped for, but the main one I truly enjoyed were some of the professors and the Christian service obtainable for all students. My advisor was an amazing individual who helped make the path towards my master's an easier road to travel, yet some professors lack that dedication towards their students. I would change the diversity and preference given to certain students. The staff and athletic coaching staff can also improve on their quality of interaction with their students.
Living on campus comes with experiencing college the right way, just because you get to live with your closest friends/teammates and you get to meet people. There are some downfalls to it all, and that's depending on where you dorm. Theres always that one dormitory that no one likes because it's either "too old" and the community showers can get disgusting. Opposed to the dorms that you get your own bathroom, and don't have to worry about other peoples fallen hair or wearing sandals in the shower because you don't want to even know what you could be stepping on. The social atmosphere at Sterling could be better just because we don't really have a "hang out" spot, where people can go and socialize, play a few games, or watch tv together. The cost for dorms are pretty fair, I believe. Just because I talked to people from schools in the area and their prices just sound ridiculous. The housing process, is pretty fair as well because it all depends if you're a good student and you get your things done on time. It's also based on what class you're in and that's also fair.
