Alicia M.

Hometown:
Since my father was in the Air-force I consider many places my hometown. I was born in Abilene, Texas but have moved around the world. My second hometown would be Turkey because my mother is Turkish and it has been a huge factor in my life. I grew up spending a majority of my life in Turkey either visiting every chance we got or actually living there.

Classification: I am a sophomore this year at Schreiner University.

Major: I am working towards getting my BSN.

Why did you choose Schreiner?
I chose Schreiner because I knew I wanted to become a nurse and they have an exceptional nursing program. Everything they offered from the student to teacher ratio, the free tutoring for any class and all the activities held on campus. They also just started a wrestling program and I knew I wanted to be apart of an up and coming program. The beautiful campus was also a huge plus.

How has Schreiner helped you reach your goals?
Like I stated before Schreiner offers free tutoring and the student to teacher ratio is very reasonable. With the free tutoring I can go in and get help and not worry about falling behind. All the teacher and staff at Schreiner want the best for you so they will go out of their way to help you.

What advice would you give to an incoming Freshman?
Some of the best advice I could give the freshman would be to learn how to manage your time. Do not wait till the last minute to do all your homework and study for all your quizzes and tests. Do not be afraid to reach out for help if you don’t get certain topics or are not sure about a decision. Everybody is willing to help so make sure you reach out.

Where is your favorite study spot?
My favorite study spot is in the back of the library in one the study rooms.

Favorite restaurant in Kerrville?
Chili’s

What Athletic sport/program are you in and why did you join?
I am in the Wrestling program because I wrestled in high school and fell in love with the sport. When I heard of the up and coming program I knew I wanted to be apart of it.

Favorite Campus Events?
My favorite campus event was the beach bingo. You get to win amazing prizes and also have fun with a bunch of your close friends and have the opportunity to meet new people. Other events that came close are the open mics that Schreiner holds, the intramural games and the food parties the individual dorms put together.
