The Global Scholars Living and Learning Community is ideal for first-year students who want to become “movers and shakers” in our increasingly globalized world. Open to students from any major, this selective program intends to provide its students with a broadened worldview, while also fostering a close-knit community in Schreiner’s newly renovated Delaney Residence Hall.
As part of this Living and Learning Community during their freshmen year, students will engage in activities ranging from group discussions on world affairs to hosting campus events that celebrate world cultures. Students will also take one course each semester with an international focus (both fulfill general education requirements) and attend international and cultural events throughout the region. Academic success is a priority for this community, so none of these activities will pull too much time from students’ studies.
After spending their first year at Schreiner year increasing their global awareness, the Global Scholars will truly become world citizens after studying abroad in Asia. The community will travel together the summer after freshmen year to Hannam University in Daejeon, South Korea, where they will attend the Korean Studies Summer Program for three weeks (tentatively scheduled for mid-June to early July). While at Hannam University, the Global Scholars will study the culture of one of America’s most valued allies both in and out of the classroom. Highlights of the trip include visits to the DMZ (the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea), the Hanbat Arboretum, and Gyeongbok Palace (built in 1395). Benefiting from a partnership between Schreiner University and Hannam University, the cost to each Global Scholar will be no more than $2000. This estimate includes airfare, transportation in Korea, program tuition, and room and board.
The goal of the Global Scholars community is to give freshmen a lively introduction to collegiate life, while also preparing them for their future careers in a competitive global job market.
You may be a good fit for Global Scholars if you:
- Are interested in studying abroad
- Are already a news junkie or simply wish you knew more about the world
- Want to be more competitive for prestigious scholarships like the Fulbright
- Want to attend a competitive graduate program
- Are interested in an international career
