Xavier University Reviews
Xavier is a close knit community that truly cares for one another. The feeling of "being home" is the top reason that students say they chose this school I couldn't agree more. The professors care, the students care, and the campus cares. Academics are rigorous but the class sizes are reasonable so it's easy to get to know your professors and peers. There are so many opportunities for growth - internships, study abroad, panel talks, etc. What more could you ask for? A challenging curriculum with the appropriate tools to succeed. Go X!
When I first applied to Xavier, I had every intention of pursuing an Occupational Therapy degree. Then I decided to come in as a freshman undecided. Xavier was great helping me decide what I wanted to major in. Its important to remember that because it is a Jesuit and liberal arts university that the Core Curriculum is a little more extensive. Those classes can honestly be rough unless its something that you really are interested in. However, now I am an Early Childhood Education major and the program is incredible. The faculty and professors really want what is best for you as a student and future independent adult. I have met some of the best friends of a lifetime here and the basketball scene is always a blast. Go X!
Xavier University provides a pretty decent balance between challenging courses and professors who care about your development and success. It's warm hearted atmosphere is noticed everywhere as classmates hold doors open for one another, share a coffee after class, or even form study groups for classes. Don't worry, we know how to have fun too! There are so many clubs and organizations, as well as intramural or club sports. And, plenty of students venture to the local bars, pubs, and breweries off campus.
