Celebrating 125 Years

On November 1, 1887, Sterling College opened its doors and set out on a mission to create a vigorous collegiate institution in a central location. One hundred and twenty-five years later, Sterling College is still continually committed to that very end. We hope that you will join us during this 2012-13 year as we celebrate our commitment to Christ-centered education in the Great Plains.
