Over all I enjoy the student I attend school with.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

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!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It is very apparent that SXU invites diversity however I feel that at times SXU is not accustom to how other races/elasticities /groups interact with others.

Forget the plan to go out of state to a UofA, or Troy State University, because it'll be a set back. Just get you the A.A. for a two year college without skipping semesters then transfer to a University.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I can go back, I would tell myself to be ready for the hardest challenge in my life. College isn't easy, there would be even times when you feel like backing out, but dont't because all the work done, lectures, staying up all night doing homework, will pay off. The people are great not like highschool where we race to be the most popular girl in school. Here, no one really cares. They are nice and respectful people. I would tell myself, do your homework on time because you do not want to miss out on the parties. They are awesome and you get to meet many new exicting people that you though never exited. And also, BE READY TO STRESS OUT like crazy!!

What's unique about your campus?

Small, nice, eviroment, and professors are always willing to help students when needed.

The students at Saint Xavier University Chicago are extremely diverse, spontaneous, intelligent, and dedicated to their education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a school that has a reputable reputation for the program you want to go into. You want to get for a great education that suits your needs. Also, look at some extracurriculars that the school offers. Those really help your resumee.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who attends this school should be very procative in getting involved at school, especially if they are a commuter. It is easy to make friends and feel like a part of the university if you take the time to talk to others and make friends. Someone considering this school should also be willing and prepared to work hard academically. This school is very heavily based in academics. The school is a Catholic university, however, it is very diverse. Students need to be open minded and accepting of a diverse student body.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Everyone knows about the basics when it comes to choosing a college; major, location, financial aid, blah, blah, blah. So for the sake of time, I'll skip all that stuff. The student should visit the college and observe the environment. You can spend hours doing reseach online and reading brochures but the college visit is when you get a true snapshot of what your life at that school will be like. You should visit on a weekday as well as a weekend. It's a good idea to attend a class and a sporting event. If the the option is available, spend the night in one the dorms. To make the most of your experience, you should join any clubs that interest you and take an active role on campus. With classes, work, and sports or whatever responsibilities you have, it may seem like you don't have time for any additional activities but if you use your time wisely you will. Always make at least one friend in every class and don't be afraid to speak up and voice your opinion. Always put 100% into your academic work. It will pay off.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There is not enough room around campus to expand the school. Saint Xavier recently started offering off-campus apartments and are forcing some of the juniors and seniors to live there. While off-campus housing might be attractive at other schools, at Saint Xavier off-campus means your living around a bunch of old people and the shuttles are not really reliable. Most people want to live on-campus but there just isn't enough room.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a school that has a variety of course offerings. Take different courses that expose you to different cultures and viewpoints. Ask for help immediately if you need it.

The friendlyness of the faculity and staff. They are always encouraging and willing to assist whenever needed.

What kind of person should attend this school?
