McCreery - Sterling CollegeMcCreery Hall, built in 1957, is located on the northeast corner of campus and enjoys a picturesque view of Cooper Hall. This female dorm houses about one hundred women among five wings. The yummy aroma of baking often fills the hall from our well-used kitchen. According to campus legend, the McCreery water is said to contribute to the amount of engagements among McCreery Hall women. "Don't drink the water!" is a well-known slogan among the girls! For the young ladies who do get engaged while at Sterling, a traditional ring ceremony is given in our main lobby to congratulate the special lady. Sterling ladies enjoy the fellowship and companionship of McCreery Hall...come join the McCreery family!

Most McCreery residents live two to a room, although a few residents have single rooms. Each resident is provided with a twin-sized bed, mattress (mattress may be regular twin size or extra-long twin size), closet, desk with desk light, bookshelves and desk chair. Also provided are built-in storage units, mirrors, bulletin boards, and mini-blinds. McCreery Hall offers various community areas: three lobbies with televisions and study areas, a prayer room, a laundry facility, bathrooms and a kitchen.


In the past we have been able to let students loft beds, but due to liability issues and student safety, we cannot allow the beds to be lofted. Please contact Student Life if you have questions at 620-278-4232.

McCreery Hall Resident Director

Samantha Couture - Sterling CollegeSamantha Couture

My name is Samantha Couture, and I am the Resident Director of McCreery Hall. I married my best friend, Jonah Couture, in January of 2019. We moved from Colorado back in January of 2021 for Jonah to be the head cross country/track and field coach here at the college. Since then we have had two boys, Hudson and Elliott. We have the privilege of living along side our residents and athletes here in McCreery, however Jonah is also an RD of Campbell hall. We are so grateful for the opportunity to serve the college in various roles and to do life with Sterling College students.
