Sterling College - Kansas Reviews
I love sterling because of the people, and the relationships you build with peers, faculty, and athletic family. It’s a positive environment that helps one grow in their faith in their own way. The Athletic aspect of sterling is very energetic everyone supports everyone in any activity. The campus life is great, filled with many different activities through the year. I’ve loved my time here at sterling so far and I’ve already grown so much as a person. I’m excited for the future at sterling college.
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.
