Mason Rich

Hey! My name is Mason Rich, and I am currently a freshman at Sterling College! I am from Sterling, KS, and I love the small-town community here. That is one of the reasons why I chose SC. The biggest reason SC is the place for me is because of its Christ-centered focus and message. Being a freshman, I haven't experienced much of the college lifestyle yet, but I know that SC is where I can grow and make tons of memories.

Will Dutton

Hi, my name is Will Dutton, and I am an excited, incoming freshman majoring in communication with an emphasis in Sports broadcasting. Sterling has been my home my entire life, but that didn't at all affect my college decision. Over the years I've been blessed to see students thrive in athletic events, on stage, and in the local community. That wouldn't be possible without so many caring, and compassionate people on campus. Over the summer I worked for the Housekeeping staff here. It was my first time with "behind the scenes" people at the college. I can honestly say that they were some of the kindest, and most hard-working people I've met. They may have small jobs, but they relish their roles in keeping the college clean and interacting with students. That's the vibe I've gotten from everyone on campus -- a genuine interest in people and a desire to help others become more like Christ.

Sterling is a great place to do all the things that you want to do at college. I have great communication skills and am not shy. I am hoping to bring energy to the ambassador club.

Hello! My name is Emma Birky, I am a junior majoring in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. I am from Colorado Springs, CO which is about 6 hours away from Sterling, KS. I visited many other small Christian colleges all along the mid-west.

I love how the professors know me and that at SC we are a big family who love and support each other. During the past three years on campus I have been involved with the Freshman Activities Board as the Treasurer, Campus Activities Board as the Event Coordinator, and this year I am a Resident Assistant in McCreery Hall.

Britt Bowman

Hello! My name is Britt Bowman and I am a senior at Sterling College majoring in Christian ministries with an emphasis in youth and worship leadership. I am from the Kansas City area (Olathe to be exact), so it is only about a three and a half hour drive from my home to Sterling, Kansas. Sterling originally grabbed my attention because they offered both sides of my major and the other colleges I visited only offered one or the other. When I visited, I immediately fell in love with the school. From the start, it felt like home. The environment is one-of-a-kind, the people are loving and friendly and the professors are extremely available and invested in you personally; you aren't just another face in the crowd. My favorite part of Sterling College is definitely the people: the students, professors and other employees. They have become my family. I have had the opportunity to be involved on campus as a Sterling College student ambassador and in ministry teams. I am so thankful the Lord brought me here.
