5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, there are poles for emergencies to press that are always shining a bright blue light that will bring campus police to you in a minute. The campus police are always around to make sure the students are safe. There is very little campus crime to my knowledge, and when a friend of mine's purse was stolen, the campus police responded quickly and retrieved the purse from the thief.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The older facilities aren't very up to date, but they are making an active effort to improve the older buildings.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Don't be put off by the price of tuition. It is pretty steep, but Xavier offers a lot of financial aid to alleviate the financial pressure of paying for college.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police are all over campus 24/7 and it is a really safe environment.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is virtually no Greek life on campus, excluding the academic clubs, which do not have any off campus housing.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The cafeteria has a salad bar, pasta bar, sandwich bar, burger station, pizza station, a gluten free section, dessert section, bagel station, a cereal station, and two main course areas that offer a variety of foods every day. Its awesome for as small as Xavier is.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys here are generally nice and friendly. Not many stalkers, creepers or psychos.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Strictness varies from RA to RA for underclassmen. RAs that live in the "party halls" are usually less strict.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Curriculum for biology majors is difficult at Xavier. Studying is not an option.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Course load is heavy, but professors are great about helping their students. Honor students, nursing majors, and athletes get priority registration.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Parties are great at the beginning and end of the year, but there are many "swing and miss" nights come the middle of the year. Athlete parties are usually the most fun.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Xavier is still predominantly white, but diversity is slowly growing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: With Xavier being a smaller campus, the professors are very available and willing to help their students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a really helpful career center on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: XU doesn't let greek life be more than a club, so there are no fraternities house, just clubs with the greek letter.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I really feel protected by the police

4 College Junior

Academics: professors and advisors are really helpful

3 College Junior

Academics: Some people don't care what your excuse is they won't let you override a class; which is totally unfair, they don't even consider that someone's father lost their job and they're trying to do everything in their power so that family's home don't get taken away by the government and also pay for their daughter's education.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's kind of expensive to live on campus, and since is mandatory for the first two years, they should decrease the price for at least the minority.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's okay, I don't have time to participate in any of that but my friends are in it and they really like it.

4 College Junior

Facilities: People are very friendly, which helps if you are alone (like me). Professors really care about you, and try to push past your limits so you know you don't have limits.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I wish there where more rooms in CLC, because GSC is always crowded and noisy.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's great if you're 21 or older, most places are restricted to 21 or older people or is too far away to have a nice time.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's okay, I don't live off campus because is too expensive for me.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I just hope they would give me more money, because I'm a minority so they should at least pay for my dorm costs, etc.

Overall, I am definitely satisfied with my experience at Xavier so far. Adjusting to a new city, new school, and new friends was tough at first, but in retrospect, if I were somewhere else besides Xavier, it would've been a lot tougher. The combination of a small school where you can get to know everyone with a big-school atmosphere, including big-time college sports and a big city to explore, makes Xavier a fun and interesting place to be. The people at Xavier are really some of the friendliest you'll meet. (As tired as that sounds, it's absolutely true.) The reason that Xavier has such a high retention rate is that people who take an honest look at Xavier normally want to go here, and rarely are they let down. It's clear when you visit here that things are laid-back, there are no gigantic parties on a weekly basis, and everything is in general serene and comfortable. While it may differ from the typical college experience portrayed in all our favorite movies, the XU experience is enjoyable and dynamic. The beauty of X is it can be whatever you choose to make it. At another school, the pace of life is often determined by a gigantic student body, and if you don't conform, you are an outcast. At Xavier, students have the freedom to be individuals and study, work, and play just about any way they want to.

Sure, there are plenty of things you could gripe about The parking situation is a pain. Housing can be a hassle. Also, if you're looking for a major blowout party every single weekend, Xavier's probably not for you. However, during your tenure at Xavier, you will meet tremendous people from places and backgrounds you may never have been exposed to before, and you will also get opportunities, both academic and in life, that you could not have had anywhere else. Go Musketeers!
