The Global Scholars Living and Learning Community is ideal for first-year students who are interested in international travel and culture and want to become world citizens in our increasingly globalized society. Open to students from any major, this selective program provides its students with a broadened worldview through special courses, cultural events, and international travel.
The Global Scholars enjoy a close-knit community. Global Scholars live together in Schreiner’s recently built Baldwin Hall and each student has a fellow Global Scholar as a roommate. This community even has its own lounge/study room!
As part of the Global Scholars, students will engage in a variety of activities both on and off campus. These range from small events, like international film, food, and game nights, to hosting celebrations of world cultures for the entire campus. Past events have highlighted Italy, China, Turkey, Ireland, Kenya, Russia, and India, to name a few.
The summer after their freshmen year, the Global Scholars will travel as a group to a location abroad. Schreiner University provides Global Scholars a scholarship to reduce the cost of the study abroad trip. This funding allows students to pursue study abroad at a lower cost than standard study abroad programs on campus. Participants also receive credit hours toward their degree at Schreiner University as part of the program
