Xavier has the absolute BEST community! It's a great feeling walking around campus and at any given time seeing someone you had Freshman Orientation with, someone in your class, your friends, roommates, and acquaintances. Every professor I have had put in so much time and passion into the class- even core classes become very interesting. My largest class so far, I am Sophomore, was 30 students and it was for a Core class. Xavier classes can be challenging because the professors and University expect the best out of their students but they are also very rewarding. Xavier had great connections all over especially in Ohio. Getting a job, internship or going to graduate school will be easy. Men's basketball is a great sport to watch here and is always fun! The Cincinnati area is a great place to find great restaurants and shopping and always has an event going on to offer college students something to do. Xavier offers busing to most of the popular places in Cincinnati and they have special occasion busing for events such as Oktoberfest. They have a ton of clubs that really allow people to become involved quickly with the school, make friends, and if they want become involved with the community. Their housing should be expanded but what they do have is great, especially Husman and Khulman. The caf is great especially compared to University of Cincinnati but they have Currito, Subway, Blue Gibbon, Ryan's Pub, X Spot, Starbucks, Coffee Emporium, and Ignation Station where you buy food at. If you are seriously looking into Xavier I would plan a visit on a weekday when everyone is walking around so you can experience the campus community and also Preview Day, which is when I meet my roommate, who I will live with again next year(total of 3 years). As far as the party scene, on campus its non-existent really. You will have to go off campus to houses, of go to UC. But no matter your preference you will find great friends that are either into the party scene or not.
