Am learning a lot
Schreiner University has offered me everything I can ask for in a college or university. The faculty on campus make it their mission that you understand the course work and they will personally assist you in any way they can. SU has taught me so much in the short time that I have been a student. I cannot even express how much the school has helped me grow in my personal goals.
Am enjoying being here
I could not ask for a better university. Everyone on the campus, the students, professors, deans, and administration, are friendly. Schreiner's slogan, Learning by Heart is only half of what SU offers you; it offers you not just friends but a family. You not only grow by educational means but as well as socially, through Greek Life, Volunteer opportunities, Campus events and even dorm hall activities. I truly is amazing the kind of people that you will find here at Schreiner University, it's like no where else.
Bang for the buck
Schreiner has one of the best Financial Aid programs I came across when researching different colleges and universities. Majority of the students at Schreiner University has in some shape or form a type of financial aid whether it be through scholarships, grants, or loans. Besides the bang for the buck on education, SU actively exercises healthier living. For this reason, SU has a complete fitness center that holds anything from dance classes, full access gym, raquet ball and tennis courts, and several fitness classes all free to the students. Along with all these fitness and healthy living classes and resources, Schreiner offers medical/clinical services (they have a nurse and doctor who are always happy to help when you are feeling ill and under the weather). What else could you ask for?
Tips for prospective students
Don't be afraid to ask questions. You will truly be amazed of how many new people and friends you will meet here at Schreiner. Be prepared to get the ball rolling once you start classes. Also just be yourself no one knows you so you don't have to act like someone else.
Great for these types of students
If you are wanting to go into the fields: Business, Graphic Design, Music/ Theatre, Science/medical, and Exercise Sciences; Schreiner has outstanding performances in all of these. Also if you don't know just what you want at the momemt SU is a good place to start.

Am learning a lot
I've learn that professor does negotiate here on not only assignments, but also exam dates. For example, I was suppose to have 3 finals on the same day, but I'd email my professor and he was able to let me take it early. There are help if you are struggling in school. At Schreiner we have the writing center to help with essay; the peer tutoring to help with any other subjects and best of all we have tutoring for the specific class.
Am enjoying being here
I grew up in California a big difference from this school. I knew if I want to success I have to exclude myself from all the partying. It gets lonely at times, but there's always groups to join or activities to do. We have a midnight dinner before finals: that's when the professor cooks for the students.
Bang for the buck
It's pricey for this university compare to some other colleges, but 90% of incoming students gets scholarship, including myself. The price is worth it because you get the extra help from professors and one-on-one attention; you are not just a number. When you come up to professor they know exactly who you are and how they can help you.
Tips for prospective students
Be able to do your own work at your own time. It's a competition out there even if they don't say it. Study as much as you can. Don't delay it because you will end up with a low GPA. Don't be surprise not achieving an A because for some class you are lucky to get a C!
Great for these types of students
students wanting to have a one-on-one attention from professor. Remember, you pay for your education so it need to be worth it.

Schreiner is very hands-on in it's learning, it really is, learning by the heart, as their slogan reads. Classes are small and designed to help each student as an individual, not as a number as some other larger schools would.
Am enjoying being here
I love being here at SU, there are so many things to do, and be part of. Greek life, Theatre, Art, all sorts of clubs to join. There really is something for every type of person here on campus. If there's not, the best thing about it, you can always suggest something, and even start up your own group. No one feels like an outsider, SU is really like having a family. A home away from home.
Bang for the buck
Classes are personalized. They're too the point, and really do try to prepare you for whatever field you plan to on pursuing. Many professors hold the title of Doctor in their field. Using real life experiences in place of theories. Schreiner's offers whatever they can to their students to make sure they recieve the education, students pay for.
Tips for prospective students
If you are looking at SU, consider yourself as a person. Do you enjoy one on one attention? Do you enjoy being a part of a group? If you want to receive an education that will really take you places then SU is perfect for you. It's small enough to have personalized attention, yet large enough to have the college experience, with it's sports teams, and it's academia.
Great for these types of students
Students who thrive in small group settings. Students who enjoy being connected to other people. Students who value a quality education while still being able to accomplish more than theories. Schreiner is great for students who are committed to education and value a quality school.

Small, quiet community with small classes and friendly staff. Pretty campus, good food, nice dorms. Within short driving distance from major cities (Austin and San Antonio are both about an hour and a half away) and there are nice parks and rivers w/ free equipment check out.
Tips for prospective students
Apply and register early, class sizes are small so therefore limited in how many they can take.
Academic Rigor
It's small but will challenge you enough.
Dorm Life
Pretty friendly and relaxed, mostly clean.
Food and Dining
Diner on campus with changing menu and other option that is open till 11:00pm with a fresh grill.
What to do for fun
Parks, campus activities, drive to nearby major cities.
Bang for the buck
Pretty economical for the price.

It is a very good school, especially if you prefer having smaller classes and your professors knowing who you are. There are so many ways you can get help here if you need it that you don't necissarily find in larger schools. Schreiner has a lot going for it.
Tips for prospective students
If you think you could highly benefit from having better contact with your professors and you don't mind having the small town and school thing, this is the place for you. If you don't want to go to the professor for help in course work, there's other options for you also.
Academic Rigor
I'd say it's about normal for college, at least as far as what I know of college. Some of it depends on the professor, as it usually would.
Dorm Life
It depends on what dorm you live in. Most of the dorms or on campus apartments don't really have as much of a family style thing going on that you might see in some dorms on other campuses, but it isn't necissarily a bad thing. It's just that you don't see as many people as often.
Food and Dining
It's alright. I wouldn't call it the best food in the world, but it's better than cafateria food in most high schools. What gets offered does get kind of repetative after awhile.
What to do for fun
I'll go to events that are happening on campus. There are Resident Assistent (RA) events and Student Activites Bored (SAB) events. One of the big things I like to go to when I can is the bingo games SAB hold throughout the year. You can win prizes at a number of events.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
One of the oldest buildings on campus, Delaney Hall, is supposed to be haunted, although most people haven't really ever had much encounters with the resedent ghosts.
Great for these types of students
Those that don't mind small towns and not having massive amounts of things to do. Also those who feel they could benefit from having support in area's that are often not offered in bigger schools.
Clubs and Activities
There are different sports like clubs and evening classes (for those who chose to attend), a campus ministry group, you can rent a canoe and go canoeing along a local river...there are several other student led groups on campus.
Greek Life
2 fraternities and 2 sororities
Campus Safety
There isn't ever any real danger most of the time. Although, if you do feel unsafe walking around anywhere, you could call campus security to escort you somewhere.
