See what students say:

Academics

At Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas, you get “the personal touch.” Because Schreiner is small, “classes offer more student-teacher interaction and cohesion.” The “knowledgeable, intelligent, worldly professors” are “published researchers, and have a lot to offer academically.” Faculty “work hard…every time we step into a classroom and…during office hours if you need help understanding something in greater detail.” Schreiner also provides a number of “resources that enable its students to achieve their goals,” including a “STEM Zone, filled with study materials relating to STEM courses” that help students better understand the concepts they are learning in class, “success coaches that advise students on how to organize and balance their schedule,” a Tutoring Center, and “an amazing LSS program for students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.” The President of the college is “accessible,” and “attends events put on by the Student Government Association in which he hears the students’ concerns and has open dialogue with us.” Other notable offerings include the “Greystone Preparatory School at Schreiner University, a program for re-applicants to the federal service academies,” a “campus ministry program,” plenty of “opportunities for research and study abroad,” and “networking opportunities” through alumni.

Student Body

Schreiner attracts “students from all over the state” who are “friendly” and “supportive.” The student population is “diverse for such a small campus in the middle of the Texas Hill country.” Students tend to be “quiet” and less social than at some schools, but “friendly,” and “always there to help you.” Students have a “great campus life” and “opportunities to make meaningful friendships with others by being in learning communities,” which include STEM students, “a global scholars group, and a religious group, as well.” You don’t have to be in a learning community, but “it is encouraged.” There is economic diversity, with students “from low-income households…attending Schreiner University with the aid of scholarships.” And there is camaraderie between classes, as well. One first-year student who started off in upper level classes says, “It was a bit intimidating being in a room full of juniors. However, these upperclassmen eventually became my mentors and tutors. They helped me better transition into the college life and showed me ways to get involved.”

Campus Life

The atmosphere at Schreiner University “can almost be described as...quaint,” one student says. “Shrubbery encloses the outdoor walkways” and “students are often seen riding retro-style bikes along the sidewalks.” Campus life is shaped by a “small” and “beautiful” campus that invites “being outside,” participating in events put on by one of “over fifty recognized student organizations,” “volunteering,” or just “spending time with friends.” But students often get out “to discover parts of Kerrville,” “go to San Antonio” on weekends, “swimming or paddle boarding at the local river,” getting some time in with the pups at the “local dog parks,” “hiking,” “or movie nights with friends.” Athletics are big at Schreiner, with “a lot of varsity sports to choose from and participate in, as well as a blossoming intramural league system.” A lot of people “take advantage of the Lions Den and sports centers.”
