Review Xavier University of Louisiana
Xavier University to me means a gateway to more opportunities. I have a lot of older mentors who attended Xavier University and are now working on the highest level of doctors, and I’d hope Xavier can bless me with same opportunity. I have researched that the university has remained first in comparison to Ivy League schools like Harvard and Yale University when it comes to bringing through the largest number of Black medical students, as well as Black students with Bachelor Degrees in Biology and Physics. That percentage rate is very exciting and drives me to want to accomplish my goal at Xavier. Xavier gives off a welcoming atmosphere of community and collaboration amongst the student body, the professors, and the faculty, making them seem like the type to help nurture and guide me throughout my time at Xavier.
Xavier University of Louisiana was almost the perfect fit for me. I came to the right school based off divine guidance, and it has honestly been a wonderful experience. My school is renown for the sciences, most specifically, biology and chemistry. However, my major is public health. It is wonderful. I love the professors, the coursework, and the overall experience. There are many opportunities available to study abroad and do domestic exchange programs. I have taken Mandarin Chinese, and my school has it own Confucius Institute which is one of few in this country, let alone at an HBCU. I have also done an internship in Cameroon, Africa. One of the beauties about my university is the sense of community, especially in close-knit circles such as campus ministries. You build a family of friends and acquaintances throughout your matriculation at Xavier. Every semester, for campus ministries, there is a retreat that campus ministries does. Each time it is different, but every time it changes lives, builds a sense of community, and provides rest and healing to students. Each university has its own experience, but my university has an experience you will remember for your betterment. Of course there are highs and lows, but it is definitely worth the experience. Do your best to perform well before you get here, it will benefit you. It's ok to take your time, perhaps the first semester, and take general education courses as you find your major and passion. Your faith will be perhaps one of your biggest resources use it!
I like that Xavier is a small school. I can talk to professors much easier. However, Xavier has a lot of rules that don't necessarily make me feel like I am a college student. For example, there's a schoolwide curfew, even on weekends. We have specific hours that we can have visitors. It literally feels like I'm still at my parents' house sometimes. The classes are also incredibly difficult; I feel that I struggle more than if I were taking the same classes at a different school.
