Sterling College is offering an opportunity for prospective students and their families to visit campus, explore its academic offerings and eat lunch in its nationally-recognized dining hall by hosting a Summer Open House on Saturday, June 9th from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on its campus in Craftsbury Common.

Known for its “Working Hands, Working Minds” motto and mission of environmental stewardship, Sterling is ranked #3 in Sierra Magazine’s annual “Cool Schools” list of America’s most environmentally-minded colleges and universities.

Open House includes a tour of campus, where participants will visit residence halls, classrooms and the Rian Fried Center for Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems, the college farm where 30% of Sterling’s food is grown. Open House visitors will participate in short workshops about Sterling College’s innovative Bachelor of Arts degree program. These faculty-led workshops will explore majors in Ecology, Environmental Humanities, Outdoor Education, Sustainable Agriculture, Sustainable Food Systems as well as the Self-Design Major option.

Sterling College is currently accepting applications from first-year and transfer students for the upcoming Fall 2018 Semester, which begins on August 26th, as well as for the Spring 2019 entry term, which begins in January. Financial Aid is available for new students, and staff will be available during Open House for individual consultations about college affordability. Interested attendees may register online at
