Sharon - 02/07/2022

The campus and atmosphere are nice. It's only 30 minutes away from where I'm currently living. Though I would like to spread my wings and attend school in a new place, it's comforting knowing I can be close to family if I choose to be. The rooms are okay, for such a large all included tuition I expected a little more, but I guess that's just how college dorms are.

julissa - 10/30/2021

I think Schreiner is a great school. It is a private University so it is a smaller campus. Having a smaller campus means you get more one on one from professors. I also like the tight knit communities you can form. I do have to take out various loans in order to come here, but when I think about the level of education I am receiving f makes it worth it. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The school provides text books. There are multiple places to get food on campus so it's never boring. The school likes to hold certain activities like karaoke nights, coffee houses ect.. The school is only an hour away from San Antonio which provides big city life for weekend adventures. Overall I have really enjoyed my experience with Schreiner and I wish other people knew more about it.

Lauren

It is a really wonderful place. The smaller campus and student body is awesome because you can meet practically everyone, staff too, and instantly feel a bond. The staff are amazing and literally saved my life, allowed me to get well and now come back. Everyone genuinely cares about each other, creating a great environment to learn and live in.

Schreiner University is an amazing school. All professors show interest in what they do and are always there when you need them. Schreiner makes you feel at home and like part of a family.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    I believe that the best thing at Schreiner Univeristy that I have personally experinced is the social connections that are made across our small campus. Every student feels like they have a place amongst the others because we are all viewed at as individuals, not as specific ID numbers walking around. The connections between the students are powerful bonds of friendship, fun, and teamwork. The connections between the teachers and students are the best that any college can offer. If a student has trouble in a subject, a teacher will do anything in their power for that student to succeed.
