Saint Xavier University Reviews
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!
I love the small class sizes and the professors are very willing to give you one on one help. They have a lot of fun clubs and programs that help you become a successful graduate. Overall the student body is very open and friendly and game nights are the best. Since this is a private school the tuition is pretty high and it increases by a $1,000.00 every year. This is ludicrous in my opinion but it is apparently a necessity for the university. The records and advising is a very helpful office and I recommend using their resources whenever available. Although, I found that there is a disconnect between the financial aid office and this one regarding the compatibility of certain majors. Even though there is a disconnect the staff in these offices are extremely nice and helpful. Also there are some programs such as SSP that assist in helping first generation students and I found them to be helpful. This program also offers financial aid to its participants each fall and spring semester.
If you're looking to party, this isn't the school for you. But, if you're someone who is serious about education, and your future, this is the place for you. I feel like the university only gets a bad reputation because people expect it to be some big party school. SXU takes pride in their education, and that should be the number one reason as to why people choose the school that they do. I am an alum who graduated a month ago, and already have a job in my field. Choosing Saint was the best decision I could have made, and I really appreciated the professors and small class sizes. Go cougs!
