Traditions at Schreiner University

Sung to the tune of "On, Wisconsin," Schreiner's fight song lyrics were written mid-century by Sam Junkin, who was then a Schreiner student but destined to become the college's third president. “On, Wisconsin!" was regarded by John Philip Sousa as "the finest of college marching songs."  Click here to play mp3

Every month SU's president asks students to join him for breakfast, where they talk about school, pets, parking, and anything else that may come up, in a comfortable, casual setting.

Brown-Bag Lunches

Throughout the year, some of the University's Trustees meet with students over a brown-bag lunch to talk, whether it's related to school or not.

The Ancient and Honorable Order of the Campus
"The Order" was originally established in 1926 and currently serves as Schreiner's traditions council. It is an elite group of 12 students—one for each member of Schreiner's first graduating class—whose primary goal is to preserve and promote Schreiner's rich history and traditions. The Order hosts events and spirit rallies throughout the year and aims to enrich each student's Mountaineer experience. The Order embodies three foundational principles: pride, scholarship and teamwork.
