Xavier University was not one of my top choices at first, but as I toured the area and surrounding I grew to like it. My other choices for college were Miami University, University of Cincinnati, or Ohio state. And the reason I chose Xavier out of all those schools is because of their environment. I really liked their small population of students and how it’s not over crowded. I personally don’t like a swarm of students all crowded up while having to walk to class. I don’t want to feel like I’m in high school again. And the other schools that were in my top choices are super nice and I also loved the size and building. Although they were really nice, I have a few friends that go there and say how their class sizes are huge and you barely can talk and discuss subjects with the teacher. And in Xavier the class sizes are super convenient and regular sized. All the professors are class oriented and are always available, and always answering emails within hours. However, there are some things I don’t like about Xavier. The surroundings outside of Xavier’s is somewhat questionable. They barely have anything that’s walking distance to eat,shop, or just to look around. The campus itself is great, just the off-campus site is a little ghetto. I feel like there should be more grocery stores and places to eat around there. There's not much to do compared to the other universities I’ve toured. Overall, I give Xavier 4 out of 5 just because of the off-campus inconveniences.
I really enjoy my major and classes. We have to take a lot of core classes but this is to ensure that every student is a well rounded human. It is a private, Jesuit university that prides itself on inclusion and outstanding academics. The dining hall was also named the best in the country.
Xavier University is a wonderful school. The campus is all around beautiful, and I find it nice that it is small enough to see people I know walking around, but big enough to not know a ton of people in your grade. The students are very well supported considering we all have an assigned success coach to check in on us both academically and non-academically. It is very easy to make friends although it was a little difficult at the beginning due to Covid. The professors are amazing and truly do care about their students. As far as social life, on the weekends it is easy to find people to go out with, but if you want to stay in there is never any pressure for you to go out. I have loved every minuet of my experience at Xavier so far!
This is a very visually beautiful campus, and to be honest between that and the great academics that’s what sold me on Xavier. However, it is very hard to meet people on campus. The social life is not good. There is no Greek life and no parties. With the pandemic, making friends is just so much harder. I’m almost finished with the semester and I’ve made no actual friends. It’s so lonely. I know I’m not the only student who feels this way because I talked to a junior who said the same thing about the social life. ***Also very important note: if you can bring a car BRING IT.*** I will say that all of my professors are good professors though. Shoutout to Dr. Kayla Wheeler!!!! Take one of her classes she’s incredible

Choosing the right college is primarily about deciding what is most important to the student. Every college has its own set of priorities and focuses on its own areas, whether it be sports offered, a certain major program, the social environment, cost, location, or a multitude of other aspects of the college experience. However, no college will have every one of these, so a student must decide which ones are more important to him/her. After deciding this, it is best to do a much research as possible through a high school counseling center or various internet sources to find a variety of schools that cater to those areas the student is interested in. In addition, several schools should be chosen that lay just outside the student's focus, so that the student may better evaluate the schools he/she is interested in, as well as the areas he/she has decided are most important. Once schools are chosen, the student should visit each school and take diligent notes, focusing on the areas he/she is interested in. These notes should be the basis for the student's decision of which college is best for him/her.
Xavier is a school dedicated to teaching students to become men and women for others.
The attitude of the people running the school and how poor it truly was. They put on a facade during any time when they were speaking to a large group and turned into awful people when it came to one-on-one discussions.
The best thing about school is learning new things in my field of study and meeting new people in the program. Because I go to a small school, the class I am in will be the class I am with for the rest of the time I am there so getting to know those people is the most enjoyable part for me because this is where I will probably make some of the best friends I'll ever have.
Any person can attend Xavier! You have to be willing to work hard and look for help when you need it. Students and staff are happy to help, and it is easy to meet tons of people within the first week of school. It is a small campus, but it is a huge community. Xavier has a huge network in Cincinnati and around the world that makes the school such a great community, but it is a very close-knit community.
The campus life is extremely close knit. It is impossible to walk accross campus and not know anyone unless you never leave your dorm room. And even then, you'll probably run into your roommate. People are extremely caring, and you never get lost in the shuffle.
Someone who wants a smallish school with small classes, attentive professors, and a great sense of community. Good opportunities to get involved with a variety of activities, watch university sports, and do community service.
They seem to be relatively interested in what they are pursuing at this university, but I get the feeling most of them are not satisfied with where they are or what they are doing with their lives.
Probably that it doesn't have the latest and greatest equipment...but they are having a campaign to get all that stuff soon
I brag most about the high academics provided at Xavier and the small atmosphere provided by the campus and classes. The classes are all very challenging, even the core requirement courses, causing each student to push themselves harder than ever in high school. Also, the small atmosphere helps make me feel like I'm home, recognizing almost everyone. And of course, the school spirit at the basketball games cannot be matched!
Definitely for their foundation in community service as well as their basketball team. Go X! Also, they have an amazing school of Business (The Williams College of Business).
They have to many required courses so you have no freedom to take a course because you like it, because it won't fit in with your major and you wont have time.
Everyone there has a great attitude. Everyone that helped me through the enrollment process truly cared about my success. I could not imagine my future without Xavier. Xavier has so much to offer me and my future, and I can not wait to see where Xavier takes me in life!
I have not started their yet, I will in the fall semester. But in going to both my Radiology director and my clinical instructor I can tell they are filled with knowledge and are just as excited to work with me as I am excited to work with them!
The most common stereotype at Xavier University is that we are all Dorky Bio or uptight business students who dont know how to have fun.
Is it true? No. We know how to get down.
