Please join us for Fall Open House, and get to know the remarkable Sterling College community. Open House is scheduled for April 29–May 1, with campus tours, academic workshops, a student panel, a community meeting, and other activities. We will also provide opportunities for individual meetings with faculty members, admission counselors, and learning support staff.
Early October is one of the most beautiful times of year to visit the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, and the fall foliage will be glorious. In addition to the informational side of Open House, you can expect to have a lot of fun! Enjoy bird walks with President Matthew Allen Derr, check out the Craftsbury Farmers’ Market, and of course, enjoy incredible meals in our dining hall.
Whether you’re a high school student creating your college list, a student at another college who is thinking of transferring to Sterling, a parent of a prospective student, a sibling, or a friend, you are welcome at Open House, and we can’t wait to meet you.
Open House coincides with Family Weekend, when families of current students visit campus, and with Alumni Weekend, so you will have the opportunity to connect with many members of the extended Sterling community. You can also check out traditional events like the Family Weekend Talent Show, and the Sterling Alumni v. Sterling Students Kickball Game.
