Craftsbury Common is one of the most beautiful villages in all of Vermont, and a popular destination in all seasons. Many family members of Sterling College students visit Craftsbury every year for Family Weekend, and some even continue visiting long after the student has graduated. There is a special magic to this community that is refreshing for visitors, and keeps people coming back year after year.
Our next Family Weekend is scheduled for October 8th, 2016!
Family Weekend is a great opportunity for you to:
- Catch up with your Sterling College student
- Meet faculty and staff
- Learn about the ecology of northern Vermont
- Experience our approach to environmental stewardship education.
We love welcoming families to campus! Family Weekend often coincides with Open House for prospective students, allowing current family members to mingle with families who are checking out Sterling College for the first time.
All events and meals are free of charge, although you will need to arrange your own accommodation for the weekend.
The traditional Family Weekend Talent Show is always a highlight of the year. You are encouraged to perform, but of course participation is optional.
There’s a lot to explore here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, but we’re also close enough to Quebec to make a quick jaunt across the border feasible. Be sure to pack your passport if you plan to make a trip into Canada.
