Sterling College

One week from today, students will climb into busses and venture far off-campus to undertake a quintessential Sterling endeavor: Expedition! Their four days journeying back to campus through the snowy woods will shape their Sterling experience in much the same way that Expedition itself shapes Sterling. Please support our students and the College by joining an amazing group of parents and alumni that has created the inaugural Expedition challenge by matching all donations from parents and alumni to the Sterling Fund during Expedition from December 15 to 18. You can make a pledge by emailing Topher Bordeau, or give to the College during Expedition through the link in our bio. #expeditionchallenge #reachyourpeak
