Sterling College - Kansas Reviews

Really enjoyed the small class sizes and care the faculty took to connect with and guide students. Everyone felt genuinely like family (students, faculty, staff) and were extremely supportive. Never felt proselytized to, although it is a Christian school. But it made me feel like I had a choice to learn more, rather than a requirement to be religious. Everything (the college and the town) had that small town feel - supportive and friendly. But small towns also don't have much to do. I was always pretty happy to interact with the student community and stayed busy and happy. But it is not a busy city, by any means. So to each their own.

Sterling College overall is a decent school. Like other schools, there are things that I enjoyed and things I would like to see change. Some of the things I liked about the college were the student to teacher ratio. Sterling College has small class sizes, making it easier for professors to connect to students on a personal level. One thing I would like to see change at Sterling College is the friendliness of the Administration. Some of the faculty and staff members were not the most enjoyable people to be around, and it makes the Sterling College experience less enjoyable for the students.
Attending Sterling College in Kansas has been a very pleasant experience. The campus is small and well kept, and the food is decent (for being college cafeteria food). The housing is not exactly state of the art, but it is safe and well-kept. The classes are small, allowing for more personalized attention from professors. The campus is very involved, with plenty of groups and activities for all types of people. While being a non-denominational Christian college that requires some religious courses, the faculty and staff do not ostracize or penalize anyone for choosing another path in life. The only downsides to the college are the location (Kansas has little to do, and small town Kansas has less) and the cost. The private school is fairly expensive to attend. However, all things considered, it is definitely a worthwhile college to look into as an upcoming freshman in college.
