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.
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.
