I believe that Saint Xavier University is a great school to attend. For me, before I had moved away, Saint Xavier was very close to home, so I did commute for the first two years of my college experience, then I had recently started dorming. The school was very welcoming and kind towards both their residents and their commuters. The school gives an equal opportunity for both commuters and residents to really be apart of and involved with the school. In addition, in many schools you are just a number in a class room, or just a seat taken in a class, whereas at Saint Xavier, the professors actually get to know who you are. You get to become someone inside the classroom and outside. It truly is a great school to attend.
It's okay. Just get involved and you'll feel great.
My overall opinion of Saint Xavier University is that its a really good school because of the size of student and resources. I love the resources in this school because they is a lot to choose from for example the learning center where they tutor students. Also i like the size of student for each class because the most will be 35 so the proffers will actually know your name and help you with work.

I originally chose Columbia College as my first choice, SXU as my second and was accepted to both. Due to financial setbacks I chose to attend Saint Xavier University and I can honestly say that it was probably the best decision I've ever made. This is my fourth year here at SXU and I will be here one more year after. No school is perfect, they all have heir own set of pros and cons; but Saint Xavier has mad great efforts in expanding the campus in every aspect possible and it as made my college experience FANTASTIC!
My classmates were supportative and friendly, everyone wanted to see you succeed.
Saint Xavier University is different from other schools because they have very small class sizes, which allows for more one on one time. With that, I feel more like a student rather than just another face in a big lecture hall. With more one on one time, I am getting a better education since it will be easier to get help if I have problems with anything. I also noticed that SXU has a very high percent of graduates having a full-time job, even in this economy, and that set SXU above other schools to me.
Strong community oriented and people that care.
There is too much racism. When I first started, there was not a lot of diversity so not everyone got along very well. It's too small of a school and everyone is consntatly in your business. Undergraduate dorms are unhealthy and unkept. There is violence in our area and I feel unsafe.
That it is close to the city and the professors enjoy what they do.
Saint Xavier University is best known for being a convenient school for commuter students like myself, but also offers on campus living as well. Saint Xavier is a well rounded university that has a lot to offer for any area of study. However, it is probably most famous for it's Nursing program.
A well rounded person.
Small, nice, eviroment, and professors are always willing to help students when needed.
That it lacks school spirit.
Anyone who's career goal is to become a doctor.

Generally, the professor take an interest in you as a person and your life. Since we are so small, the professors, especially the ones in your department will foster a relationship with you throughout your years here.
There are tons of student organizations on campus that put on programs. There is at least one thing a week going on, usually more.
Saint Xavier is the type of school you either love or hate. We are very small,so you get to know everyone pretty well, which can be good or bad depending on the people. Our sports are good, but there isn't a lot of school spirit. We have great teachers for the most part.
For those who live close by: most go home whether it is to work or just to do their laundry. for those who live farther away: go to a home game if there is one, homework, gym, going out, etc.
It really depends on person, course load, etc.
There is not a stereotype of SXU students. We pride ourselves on our diversity.
It depends on who you are talking to and what you are talking about.
Racism and abortion are the two topics that seems to trigger a big response from most students.
Fraternities and sororities are not allowed on campus.
We do have academic Greek societies on campus such as Sigma Theta Tau (Nursing Honors Society).
