    Xavier University is an amazing environment for students to create connections, gain a higher education and experience growth. The size of this university allows for incredibly accessible resources. Xavier thrives on supporting the students through their education but also their overall well-being. The emphasis on community at Xavier is huge. The support of faculty, residential assistants and fellow students is immense. One thing that makes Xavier university truly feel like home are the basketball games. Cintas is always sold out for every game and it is the place where students, faculty, alumni and everyone in between come together to cheer on our muskies. GO X!

    Xavier University in Ohio is an amazing and diverse college located in Ohio. I am in my first year at Xavier and I can't rav enough about it. I have 3 counselors assigned to me that help me with registering for courses, help me keep on track, and provide career counseling. The atmosphere is a close community and the basketball team is outstanding! We have a saying at Xavier, "one for all and all for one." We are Xavier and we believe in giving back to the community. I am in the business school and there are so many opportunities for me and the professors go by a first name basis. Student life is booming, the sports facilities are top notch with a new HUB center opening this fall. Campus is safe, dorms are great, and food is outstanding!
    I think the Xavier University has a great and welcoming atmosphere. There is always stuff to do around campus and lots to get involved in. I was a transfer student from a small college with not much to do around the area. So transferring to Xavier (which is located in the big city of Cincinnati) was a great change fro me and gave me a bigger sense of community. Academics can be challenging at this school varied upon your major, but like all colleges it is very manageable! Overall, great experience at Xavier.
