Sterling is a great place to school, but you have to know what you're getting into. It's really small, (140 undergrads as of 2017), so anonymity is not possible around here. Craftsbury is a great town, but be prepared to make your own fun in the long winter months. The students are great, and there's more diversity of thought than you might think from a school that appears to market so heavily to hippies. Classes are never more than 12 people, so teachers are super available, but that also means you will be around them constantly. We all eat together here, and everything's pretty informal. Also, be ready to work! Chores and Work Program will keep you busy, which can occasionally be stressful, especially when you have to get up at 6am and feed the pigs. Sterling definitely isn't for everyone, but the people that it is for will find a permanent home here in Craftsbury Common.

I like Sterling College because it is very hands on and has a great community. There are about 150 students here which makes for close friendships and a tight-knit community. It is a working College which means that you get money off your tuition every semester for helping run various parts of the school. The academics are pretty good, although things are pretty relaxed depending on the professor and I have found the course work to be only somewhat challenging. The college community comes together every week for a "community meeting" in which we share council reports, issues and awareness-es, and affirmations. This is cool because students are part of the decision making of the college. Two Student representatives are on every council.
We grow 25% of our food here on the Sterling Farm. Overall it is a very hands on campus, and students are given a lot of support and freedom.
It was a small school in a beautiful area. I enjoyed learning in an outdoor environment. Small class size was a blessing and a curse!
