I am only a freshman, but my experience at Xavier has been wonderful! The academics are extremely difficult I am a biology pre medicine major planing to be a pediatric hematologist/oncologist since I suffer from sickle cell anemia. The staff and professors are extremely interested in your learning and success! I hope to have a great rest of the semester and finish strong.
Xavier University of Louisiana is by far one of the best HBCU's there is! Highly recommended. Xavier University of Louisiana has a great medical result of graduates, amazing food and culture. New Orleans is fairly small and its quite easy to get around once you understand. The people are friendly and have lots of fun. New Orleans is known for specific things that Xavier definitely portrays in their activities which involves each and every body. An amazing time is all Xavier University of Louisiana brings to you!
