Saint Xavier University Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.


Generally students at the school are very open, accepting, and kind toward one another. We have a LGBTQ Alliance at the school, and professors post "safe zone" stickers on their doors to let you know it's safe to talk with them about LGBTQ issues. There are clubs for different religious groups as well as racial groups, and it helps celebrate the diversity in us, but also brings us closer together. The atmosphere is laid back, with students usually wearing hoodies and jeans to class, but I often see students wearing pajamas or other informal clothing. I have found that most people fall either left or center in the political spectrum. Since we are a Catholic school that celebrates our Mercy heritage, there are many religious right students and faculty here, which is also celebrated in our diversity.
