Student Life

Parent Information

Welcome Sterling College Family & Friends!

You and your family are entering an exciting time. It’s time to help your student plan for their future and make some important choices.

For students, choosing Sterling College is the first step along the path to success. SC is an excellent choice for any student who wants to be challenged academically and be prepared for today’s highly competitive workplace. It’s a perfect place for students to spread their wings, to grow spiritually, and get involved in campus activities.

Study Hall

Study hall, which can be located in Mabee Library--or in a location determined by the coach, or study hall supervisor--is intended to provide structured study time. While all students are welcome to sign-up voluntarily (some benefit from the accountability provided by study hall), study hall is required for those on academic probation and for some student-athletes (as determined by the coaches).

Student Life Services

The fundamental purpose of the Student Life Office is to support the mission of Sterling College by facilitating the holistic development of students and by advancing the needs of the student body.

Sterling College's Assessment Results from the Higher Learning Commission

For colleges, the official news that they have been approved for reaccreditation is much like the diplomas their students receive during graduation: the "piece of paper" stands for a lot of hard work.

But it also symbolizes progress and success, which is why, when Sterling College's President Dr. Paul J. Maurer announced last week that the College had received an official 10-year reaccreditation, he said, "This is a truly significant moment for Sterling College. Join me in giving thanks to God for his goodness."

On the Spot Improv


To be a creative outlet for members and supporters of all things improvised. We aim at bringing the art of improv to light here at Sterling College, and provide another means of theatrical entertainment to the student body.

Musicians at Sterling College


Our mission is to bring music to the college and beyond. Naturally there are so many ways to do this, but we would like to include more student participation, such as getting a small quartet for an event. Through music, we hope to bring people together and facilitate an environment conductive for learning of one's self and the spirit.


To promote music within the student body. By the time we leave this place, we would love to see many of the community band members involved, and maybe a few ensembles would rise up from that.
