4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. There are always police around campus if you ever need anything and the blue lights are there in case of emergencies. The police do a great job of keeping the students informed on any safety issues that are going on around campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All professors are extremely helpful and willing to meet with you whenever you need. Courses can be difficult, especially science courses. But the work is definitely worth it!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the internships, jobs, and research opportunities are available primarily to upper classmen, and there should me more opportunities for freshman and sophomores. The quality of all the services is great though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to stay connected with everything on campus and is very convenient for walking to classes and the cafeteria. Dorms are cleaned frequently and well. Personally, I've heard the best things about Husman Hall, and I lived there and I loved it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. The cops constantly patrol to make sure everything is in order.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When it comes to class sizes, Xavier is simply the best. You get the focus and attention that you need to succeed later on in life. The classes can be difficult and demanding but professors will give you help anytime you ask for it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For after graduation, there are recruiters and help available to get a job but you have to do the work to get to them. In school, there are few jobs available but after the first week of school, most jobs will be taken and it's hard to find what would work for you afterwards.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing as well as the dining are too expensive and they kick you out right after semesters.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't any fraternities or sororities in this school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletes are the main priority. They come first in most things, which is understandable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Xavier! The people are very welcoming, everyone hangs out with everyone, despite the grade level. The professors help you out until you succeed, and it isn't a party school so you can get your work done at all time.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school are really big in varsity sports when it comes to basketball and soccer (our teams are pretty amazing). We even have a club just for fan support for all sports and events called X-treme fans, they paint their bodies for almost every game, even if it's in the winter.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been absolutely wonderful. Despite the stress regarding roommates and course work, it has been a great experience. I have met my now best friend, and found a whole new friend group (which consists of 10 people). I have excelled in my coursework thanks to the helpfulness of my professors - they are the most kind people I've met and are always available to help you. Everyone at Xavier is welcoming, kind, and non-judgmental, and I think this is because of our student commitment stating that "We are men and women for and with others". I would choose this school again no matter what because I love everything about the campus - it's small and beautiful - and because of the initial reason I chose it - their acceptance rate into pharmacy school.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Cincinnati has a lot to offer. It's not all super easy to get to for those that do not have a car, but its plentiful and fun!

5 College Freshman

Academics: The workload, expectations, and stress are high, but if you attend class and get to know your professors / ask questions then you will excel.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: From clubs to the CFJ to the International Office, we have groups in place to make everyone feel welcome.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I do not live in the campus dorms, so I'm sure there is a lot that I miss at night. However, I have many friends that I hang out with on campus/in their dorms, so I'm pretty confident in stating that we do not have too many students overusing alcohol, but that there are policies in place in case they would.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: While it may take our police 20 minutes to get to you, we have a great campus and seldom need their assistance.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you put the work in, you will succeed. The professors get to know you by name and are usually helpful when you ask. The best professors seem to be those in the Williams College of Business, while those most difficult to deal with seem to be the English professors.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career development office is open often to aid both students and alumni. Even if you just want your resume reviewed, they are always willing to do what they can to ensure that you'll succeed.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Although we love and support all of our sports, we have a campus culture dominated by our basketball team. Go X!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Manresa, Welcome Week, discounted concerts, plays, Xavier Fest, coupons to local places - Xavier truly does their part to provide their students with an outstanding education and great clubs, extracurriculars, and events to coincide!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The university is surrounded by a slightly rough neighborhood but the Norwood and XU PD work to ensure students' safety on and off campus. Recently however there have been multiple burglaries and muggings.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I truly love Xavier. There are a few things I wish were different like the amount of study spaces or the fact that we lost to Wisconsin, but it's a wonderful school and I've made so many wonderful memories here. I don't think I could imagine myself anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There's a high success rate of students being employed after graduation. I know Cincinnati is very promising for Xavier students, however, I want to expand my horizons after college.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
