Sterling Alumni Reunion & Presidential Inauguration
October 11-13, 2013
Come join us for a Sterling Alumni Reunion!
We're celebrating 55 years of Sterling. If you attended or worked at Sterling at any time from 1958 on, we would love to see you here in Craftsbury Common from October 11-13, 2013.
Registration & Accommodations
Please register online. If you have any questions about the reunion or the registration process, please contact Sydney Flowers '01, Director of Alumni Relations.
As classes are being held during this time, we cannot offer dormitory housing. However, you are welcome to camp at Sterling. If you plan on camping, please indicate this on the registration form.
The Craftsbury Outdoor Center and the Highland Lodge are offering discounted rooms to people attending the Alumni Reunion and/or Inauguration. Be sure to mention Sterling College when you make your reservations to receive the discounted rates.
