Welcome, GMC students

Smooth Transition. Immediate Traction.

Green Mountain College and Sterling College have been leaders in environmental stewardship and sustainability education here in Vermont and throughout New England for decades, and we have a long history of collaborating on statewide initiatives. No two colleges in Vermont are more similar in habits and habitats. We feel sure you will feel right at home at Sterling, and we will do everything in our power to make the transition as seamless as possible– academically, financially, and in all other ways.

Welcome to our community.  We think you’ll like it here.

 

Visit Sterling

In a world where colleges, like big box stores, look increasingly alike, Sterling is unlike any other school in the nation. Which is why you need to visit.

Breathe the fresh, mountain air on our rural Vermont campus. Watch our draft horses at work and tour our woodlands, greenhouses, classrooms, and studios. Relish a farm-to-table lunch with Sterling faculty and students.

See for yourself that it’s possible to learn in a place where you can live your values. Schedule a visit now. (And wear your work boots.)
