I enjoyed the overall experience that Xavier University of Louisiana brought. It really made me feel at home and welcome as an incoming freshman. The academics are tremendous and the amount of services available to better our skills are great! Overall, I would only improve the housing and food accommodations. The housing needs to be more up to date and preferably bigger living space. The food needs to be more appealing and more of a variety should be brought to out selection.
The food is the surrounding areas are amazing. The vibe around campus is good, as well as the amazing people. The city of New Orleans in fun and amazing! There is always something to do or somewhere fun and exciting to go. The classes are challenging, but the tutors and professors are always there to help. All the tutoring centers at Xavier University of Louisiana are completely free. The have a writing center to help correct and improve your essays and papers too. Everyone is so friendly, and there is a lot of resources to help. The cafeteria also services authentically New Orleans cuisine.
