Terri Van Kirk Position: Administrative Assistant for the Admission Office

Hometown: San Angelo, Texas

How long have you been with Schreiner?  Where were you prior? I've been at Schreiner since 1996.  I worked for the Howard College Nursing program before Schreiner.  They had an off campus program here in Kerrville.

What do you like best about Schreiner University?  I really enjoy the people here at Schreiner.  Everyone is so friendly and helpful.  You really feel welcome.

What do you like best about your position at Schreiner? The Office of Admission and Financial Aid is a great place to work.  Our staff is wonderful and really works great as a team.  I really enjoy it when the office comes together on a massive bulk mail project.  It turns out to be a lot of fun.

What Schreiner events do you enjoy?  I really enjoy dive-in movie night at the pool.  That's fun.  Also, any event that brings potential students on campus is great. 

Favorite food:  Steak, potatoes and chocolate would have to be my most favorite. But I'd never turn down Krispy Kreme donut.

Favorite books:  I also take classes part-time at Schreiner so I don't have much time for pleasure reading.  When I read it's textbooks.

Favorite vacation spot:  I love going to the beach.  Port Aransas, South Padre, Cozumel or anywhere there is sand, water and sun.

What do you like to do during your weekends?  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I usually go out of town a couple of weekends each month.

Is there any particular advice you would give to students?  Take advantage of all the opportunities available at Schreiner.  Make the most out of your life at college.  Take a travel class.  It's a wonderful experience you will never forget.
