I transferred to Saint Xavier University after attending a local community college and my transfer process was excellent! While working on my associates degree, I was able to take classes that easily transferred over to fulfill my bachelors degree requirements. This was very helpful to me because I didn't want to be put back in the 4 year college track. Saint Xavier also offers many scholarships and makes it very easy to set up a non interest payment plan throughout the year. What I would change about the school is that I would offer a greater variety of courses. I would also enjoy having more lounge space in the hallways since many of the students and myself are commuters. Furthermore, I would recommend the school to invest in finding a way to add more parking space because parking is always filled and very hard to find. Overall, I really enjoy the atmosphere and the small school setting, because the professors, students, and alumni are very welcoming and kind.
Review Saint Xavier University
I think Saint Xavier University is a great school! Everyone is very helpful and friendly. The teachers are very knowledgeable in their fields and are always willing to help! There are always so many things going around campus making it quite easy to become involved! I love how the classes are fairly small. One thing I would change about this school would be their selection of evenings courses. I understand that the university is more of a traditional school and has younger students, but with their increasing number of working transfer students, I feel they should take that into consideration and offer more evening courses. Overall, I really enjoy attending SXU!
Saint Xavier is an excellent school when it comes to resources. The school has a large research database that can aid students in their research papers and projects. They also offer very good scholarships and financial aid to those attending. The professors are generally of high standard and are quite exceptional. All the professors I have are very open to help their students with any questions or any concerns they might have. They even encourage students to ask questions because "the stupid questions are those not asked." The campus is beautiful and wide-ranged. The diner, student lounge, library, and study rooms are all open to students who want to socialize, study or do both. There's a Starbucks, a convenience store, and a "snack shack" on campus as well. Saint Xavier is a very nice university for people wanting to receive a lot for their investment in a higher education.
