My opinion of Xavier University of Louisiana is that Xavier is a very good college. I really love not only the history behind Xavier, but also how the professors are very serious about us and our education and about how there is a academic staff that help student to improve their grades also.

Kyle - 01/12/2021

Xavier does not have the quality of students for social gatherings, but overall, academic achievement us superb. There are plenty of resources to be successful on campus and beyond. Safety is a concern and on-campus housing is terrible. Student organizations are not very loyal.

Trinity - 11/21/2020

At first, I was nervous to attend, but now I am glad that I did. Yes no lie Xavier University of Louisiana is a hard school to attend but it is worth it This school will break you down to build you back up and you will see why in the future. It is close to my home and is also an HBCU which I wanted to attend. I love coming here.

Hala - 07/09/2020

This is a great school that will especially prepare you for careers in health sciences and medical school. Even if medical sciences is not your major there are many other degrees offered. The school is located in midtown Louisiana not far from the City Park which is beautiful. It is very easy to get around on the trolley cars. It is small which allows for a close knit community.

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

    The worst part about the school is its location. Xavier is basically in middle of downtown New Orleans. At first it's fun because there's so much to do in this great city. After a while though the city almost becomes annoying. With living in a big city like New Orleans you get big city problems. There's heavy traffic all the time and constant construction everywhere, even on campus. It's not so bad, and for others, Xavier may sound like paradise but for a freshman trying to get used to being independent; there are alot of distractions.

  6. Describe the students at your school.

    When I meet new classmates they tend to stick to their "clicks" that they've been in since we began school. As the semester progresses my classmates and I begin to bond over common interests (i.e. how bad we thought our last organic chemistry exam was). Then we begin to share notes and form study groups. So overall, it is very easy to relate and socialize with my classmates.
