Welcome New Mountaineers!

At Schreiner University we believe that orientation is essential in assisting new students with their transition into college. During Mountaineer Days Orientation (freshmen orientation) and TNT Orientation (transfer non-traditional orientation) new students meet with faculty advisors to review course offerings, learn about campus services and programs, and meet a variety of people from faculty and administrators to other new and current Schreiner students. Orientation will prepare you to become a true MOUNTAINEER.
