Schreiner University Reviews
I loved the campus! My tour guide was amazing and I really love the small school setting. Everything was extremely nice and I could see that being my future home.
It is too expensive even with the scholarships that are offered. Although they say that over 90% of students come with financial aid, many people aren't able to afford studying here so they end up transfering to other schools.
Schreiner lacks communication throughout the departments. They make unsuccessful change and are afraid to expand. This small town college allows you to make personal connections, however, these connections can become clique-ish and political. There is a lot of gossip at the school. Small class sizes can be a plus, however, this does not allow flexibility on attendance and hinders flexibility in class scheduling making it difficult to work and go to school. The school is good for personal networking and growing professionally within the community. Student involvement events are also few and far between and the campus is not very commuter friendly.
I went there for a program and the place was very beautiful. It seemed to hold a lot of tradition and history. The classrooms were slightly cramped and technology was limited however.
I enjoy Schreiner University so much. The school provides a like home environment with self driven students to become apart of the community. They offer so many opportunity for students to be involved around campus. From their sports, to many student activity events and their intermediate sports, Scheiner University really stands out from any other private school. If anything I could change, I wish the school would become a D-II division sports school.
What I liked about Schreiner University is the outdoor landscape of the area. It’s a small school which is great for people who want to connect with their professors on a one on one basis. The people are very nice when meeting you for the first time. What I like to see change is the cost of attendance because that could be offsetting for people who cannot afford it.
Overall, I have had an excellent experience with Schreiner. Being a commuter I was worried I was not going to feel apart of the school, however after joining various activities I am. I am currently on Career Advisory Board and the competitive cheerleading team. When I was a freshman, they had no spirit team and I was a little disappointed, however, since then they have now started a program.
The teachers are allows there to help and have a genuine interest in the progress and success of the students. The food is fantastic, we even have our own Starbucks on campus. The college is very involved in the community and our campus is always getting new resources, buildings and materials. The only bad thing i have to say is how slow the resources centers such as the Accounting services office are to do anything. It is almost impossible to talk to anyone because they always seem to be closed on at lunch, and when you do get stuff to them it can take over a month to get any type of confirmation or reply back, which is killer on deadlines.
When I was touring the college with my parents everyone was telling us about how great this school is. How the food is amazing, the dorms are great, and the people are just so nice! Yeah, that was not completely true. The food sucks. They rarely have edible food in the diner. The freshman dorms are either really loud or the pipes are so bad that every 5 minutes the water gets really hot. A lot of the people here are really snobby or don't actually want to do their jobs and help you.
I have grown a lot in my time at Schreiner University. I have been provided opportunity after opportunity to become a better me. I have been able to be a leader in many organizations, and give back to my school's community. I have had the pleasure of working on campus, and the staff you work with are phenomenal. The professors are outstanding and really do care for the students. No school is perfect so of course there are areas that can be worked on, but the school has done tremendous amount in the past 2 years to get the school well equipped for its students. At times it seems like there may not be anything to do, but there is always something happening on campus, and Fredericksburg is 30 minutes away and San Antonio is 45 minutes away. I always tell people "You get out what you put in". This statement is so true on our campus, and I am excited to say I will be graduating from such as wonderful school.
Schreiner is an amazing campus. It is both, beautiful and safe. Everywhere you go, you see people you know. It is such a tight community and the professors really do care about you and your grades. If you are looking for a true home away from home, Schreiner University is the way to go!
I like Schreiner University for various amount of reasons. The atmosphere is very polite and helpful, everywhere you go you will always be treated with respect and have someone always being polite. Also another reason why I like Schreiner is how small the class size is, you are able to have that one on one with your professor and learn materials better.
Schreiner University is a great school to attend too if you are interested in a small school and prefer a one on one feel to the teacher. I am very happy with my decision to attend to Schreiner. The people here are very kind and the environment is very positive. Also there is little to no drama, making Schreiner a very calm school. Overall, Schreiner University is a great school.
I like that Schreiner University is a small campus that provides various opportunities for growth and a student that wants to be involved has that chance to do so. The professors really do care about the welfare of the students and the campus does provide the right opportunities for success. Even though that the campus is expensive the finance department did help me discover various ways for me to earn money to pay for school. The campus is surrounded by the beautiful hill country with lots of deer and very good river spots to have fun at.
While the stunning scenery is nice, there is little to do at schreiner, and not much to learn. They have lost accreditation as a pre-nursing program. Their budget is spread thin between a diverse range of majors that their professors are questionable at best and facilities are greatly underfunded. The Town surrounding population is predominantly over the age of fifty and the closest larger population is an hour and a half away. In reality, schreiner would do better as a junior college for student to gain an associates degree or get their basic completed there.
I like that Schreiner University is really dedicated to their students. For example there are student tutoring sessions, professors make their office hours welcoming to any student that might have questions or concerns. It is really a welcoming place.
I've been at Schreiner for almost 2 full years now and I've made the most of my college experience. Since the classes are so small, it is easy to get the one on one help from professors many need during this stressful and confusing time in our lives. There are so many ways to get involved and make your mark on campus. Schreiner University has amazing faculty and staff that are here for us and are dedicated to making our 4 years, as quick and easy as possible. Schreiner truly is my home away from home.
