Schreiner University
Kerrville, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)


An independent and coeducational university, Schreiner has a colorful history rich with Texas heritage and traditions beginning in 1923.

Schreiner was founded in that year when a Hill Country rancher, merchant and former Texas Ranger, Captain Charles Schreiner , asked the Presbyterian Church to help him put bricks, mortar, and people around a dream he had nurtured for many years. He donated land along the Guadalupe River and together they established "facilities for high grade instruction and military training to boys and young men as preparation for college and university work."

Not a Presbyterian himself, it is said that Captain Schreiner chose to work with the Presbyterians because their charter most closely resembled the constitution of the United States.

Schreiner's first students came in 1923 from remote ranching communities. But news of the prep school and nurturing atmosphere spread quickly. Soon scores of young men from varied background, from the Southwest and several Central and South American countries, gathered in Kerrville to earn high school diplomas and junior college degrees.

By 1971 the military training was discontinued and the school became fully coeducational.

In 1973 Schreiner phased out its high school and strengthened its college curricula.

And in 1981 the college became a four-year institution. Only a decade after becoming a four-year institution, Schreiner College was listed as one of the top regional liberal arts colleges in the western United States by the prestigious U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Colleges Guide.

In February 2001, the Board of Trustees voted to change from Schreiner College to Schreiner University.

Schreiner University has had only five presidents in its history: James J. Delaney served from 1923 to 1950; Andrew Edington served from 1950 to 1971; Sam M. Junkin served from 1971 to 1996; and Dr. J. Thompson Biggers served from 1996 to January 2000. Junkin was named interim president in January 2000 and served in that role until May 2001. Dr. Charles T. Summerlin was named Schreiner's fifth president on June 1, 2001.

Here are 5 reasons why Schreiner may be the right place for you:

1. Small University

When you ask students what they like most about Schreiner, they always mention that they like the small, personal atmosphere and the small class sizes. Schreiner University is a small university and we like it that way. With approximately 1,000 students on campus and a 13:1 student to faculty ratio, students get the attention they deserve.

Students can:

Tailor a major to meet future employment goals
Design an internship or senior capstone project
Take a select course in a self-paced format (personalized instruction)
Work with an advisor or the Career Services Center to determine the best major to pursue
Get tutoring in any class for FREE
Park on campus for FREE

Schreiner professors take a special interest in students' needs and learning styles. It's also important to mention that while other universities employ graduate students and Teaching Assistants (TA's) to teach their classes, at Schreiner all of our classes are taught by actual professors, most of whom hold the highest degrees in their field. So, while your peers at larger universities will never even meet their professors, at Schreiner you'll know yours by their first names!

2. Big Education

Schreiner may be small in size, but you'll receive a big education. Schreiner offers 27 majors, and graduates in our pre-professional majors like pre-law, pre-med, pre-veterinary and pre-dentistry have over a 95% acceptance rate into prestigious graduate-level programs in their area of study. Plus, US News and World Report called Schreiner one of the best values in regional liberal arts universities of the western US.

3. Affordability

Our Financial Aid office is dedicated to making a Schreiner education affordable for any student. Although Schreiner is a private Texas university, the actual difference in tuition and fees between Schreiner University and the average major public school in Texas is only $1950. We'll work with you to find the money for college that you need. Financial aid at Schreiner University begins with our institutional merit scholarship. Every full-time undergraduate freshman receives a merit scholarship upon acceptance. The amount of this scholarship is determined by the studentís all-round high school performance. For Fall 2008, the average institutional merit scholarship was $7,496. See a case study on the affordability of Schreiner tuition here.

4. The University Experience

First-year students at Schreiner never feel left out or alone. Before the school year even begins, freshmen bond during Mountaineer Days and Welcome Week. During these orientation days, students attend seminars where they learn about themselves and others.

Ice-breakers, hikes, river rafting, the ropes course and team building activities like the "human-knot" and "Texas skis" help students form a lasting relationship with one another that will last for years after graduation. Peer Advisors are upperclassmen that guide you through your transition through your first year at college.

5. The Texas Hill Country

Schreiner University is nestled in the midst of the beautiful Texas hill country, which provides an excellent backdrop for the 170-acre campus facility. At Schreiner, white-tailed deer roam the campus, professors often teach under the shade trees by the river and a host of outdoor activities await outdoor adventurers.

Kerrville is a resort town of approximately 20,425 residents. It's large enough to provide the conveniences of nearby shopping centers, theatres, cultural art museums and popular restaurants in a safe, relaxed setting. San Antonio, the ninth largest city in the US, is less than an hour's drive away, and Austin is only an hour-and-a-half away.

Schreiner has campus activities, sports and a supportive local community that's compelling. Why not see it for yourself. Schedule a campus visit with your admission counselor and plan to stay in Kerrville to experience the local flavor.
